A while back I wrote about the NJ wine passport program, where you go to some 39+ different wineries in NJ, getting your passport stamped at each one, and once you have gotten them all stamped you can send it in for a chance to win a wine tasting abroad. Since I couldn't pass up a perfectly good challenge, I decided to take this on along with Brian and Larissa from the Traveling Mortician and planned some trips to the various wine trails.
NOTE: This post is a little overdue as we visited these wineries a month ago, but I was waiting on clarification about the passport program before posting this update. As it turns out, the winery that gave us our passport gave us an old one from last year. But, the wine association will accept any completed passport book for entry to win the trip, so we made the decision to continue along with the old wine passports as we are now 11 wineries in!
Since we had done Laurita winery and Cream Ridge winery as part of the pour and pedal back in June, we intended to finish the rest of the Jersey shore trail and hit up the Colts Neck, Morganville, and Working Dog Wineries.
As our luck would have it, the website for Morganville winery said they were closed for a private event, so off to Working Dog winery we went for our first stop of the day. Arriving a little after 11am, we were the first one's there and had the opportunity to chat with the owner about their various wines.
