Downtown Haddonfield is approved for local wine sales

A new and exciting opportunity for many of Haddonfield’s Downtown Shops to pair their products with a line of locally vintage wines — enhancing Downtown Haddonfield’s retail stores and restaurants — is about to become a reality.

Haddonfield is a “dry” town by law; however, thanks to a recently approved Alcohol Management Plan for Retail Outlets prepared by the Garden State Wine Growers Association, shop owners in Haddonfield can now lease a portion of their business to one of the area’s local wine growers for the sale of Jersey-grown wines by the bottle to the business’s patrons.

Wines will be sold by a winery representative by the bottle exclusively at the shop or restaurant with which they’ve made an agreement.

First to premier wine sales on premises is Jersey Java & Tea, located at 140 Haddon Ave. Starting Friday, Sept. 5, winery partner Auburn Road Vineyard & Winery will start selling its line of wines at the shop. Wines will be sold by the bottle only, however, wine glasses will be available for patrons who wish to open and enjoy their wine onsite. Jersey Java invites everyone to come and enjoy a diverse selection of red, white and seasonal sweet wines made from the best New Jersey fruits. For the first time in over a century, visitors will not have to venture outside of Haddonfield to enjoy a glass of local wine.

In the near future, additional shops and restaurants will follow Jersey Java’s lead. MiaMare Ristorante at 18 Tanner Street is known for its authentic Italian cuisine, which patrons can soon pair with Coda Rossa Winery’s line of wines. The Little Tuna at 141 Kings Highway East is also looking forward to pairing their Jersey fresh dining options with Jersey wines on premises via their partnership with Amalthea Cellars.

“This agreement allows our shops and restaurants to enhance their product lines while bolstering New Jersey’s economy and agriculture by broadening the avenues by which New Jersey-grown wines can be marketed and sold. It’s a win-win for everyone,” said Remi Fortunato, retail recruiter for the Partnership for Haddonfield.
