Tomasello Winery is located in the heart of the Outer Coastal Plain - American Viticultural Area (AVA). This federally recognized viticultural region is home to some of the oldest wineries in the country. The grapes grown at Tomasello Winery are caringly cultivated at our family's vineyard in Atlantic and Camden Counties, New Jersey.
Owing to its position along the Atlantic Coast line and the Pinelands, we enjoy a longer growing season as a benefit of the warming maritime effects on our climate. The soil is sandy and loamy with a slightly higher pH - most comparable to soil acidity levels found in the famed Loire Valley of France, which is known for bright, beautifully balanced wines.
For those familiar with the Davis Heat Summation Scale, we are in Region 3 -exhibiting a mid-heat range. According to the USDA Hardiness Zones, Hammonton is found in zone 6B. Harvest generally commences in the last week of August through the first week of October. During dry seasons, the harvest parameters are typically high sugar with a strong underlying acidity.
We currently have 70 acres under vine, with more than 30 different varieties of grapes including Native American, French hybrids and classic vinifera. Throughout our three quarters of a century in the wine business, we have continuously experimented with new varietals to see which varietals are best suited to our location and which produce the highest quality wines. New varietals in our vineyards include Sangiovese, Shiraz, and Petit Verdot.
