The third and final winery I visited on the July Barrel Tour weekend was Cedarvale Winery, also close to home for me in Logan Township, New Jersey. Fourth-generation farmer Ed Gaventa and his wife Marsha converted 5 acres of their 200-acre produce farm to wine grapes and opened the winery in 2008. All their wine is produced from grapes and fruit that comes straight from their farm, so you know it’s fresh and they’ve put their heart, soul, and hard work into each bottle (Marsha showed me how they hand-cork and label each bottle, so a little personal touch goes into each wine they sell to their customers.)

The "South Jersey Foodie" is Nicole Pellegrini, sometimes known as sockii. She enjoys life as a writer, artist, webmaster, crafter and avid food-lover living in some of the last vestiges of active farmland in Gloucester County, New Jersey. She shares her home with her partner David, a podiatrist in Woodbury NJ and their six cats: Peanut, Norman, Sammo, Mischief, George and Benny.
I believe in enjoying life - and that includes enjoying as many different kinds and styles of food as possible. I am an omnivore with a personal passion for small, sustainable, ethical farming and natural foods. I have little patience for the "Food Police" or those who advocate that one dietary plan is the only "right" one for everyone. Find your personal balance and conscience; make food a joy in your life - that's my motto.
