Balic Winery Inc.
Located in Mays Landing, NJ, Balic Winery makes more than 27 award-winning fine handcrafted wines with the European accent. Descendants of early settlers of Mays Landing planted Balic Winery, a vineyard since the early 1900’s. Savo Balic, a former vine-grower from the Adriatic Sea, migrated to the United States. In 1966, he fulfilled his lifelong desire to bring European accent to the American winemaking scene by acquiring the 57-acre vineyard.
Savo’s ancestral knowledge and experience has enabled him to produce wines of superior quality. In 1993, Savo’s nephew, Bojan Boskovic arrived from Europe to carry on the tradition of the Family. Bojan’s European winemaking knowledge and experience combined with Mr. Balic’s expertise enhances the authenticity of the Balic Chateau in America.

Chestnut Run Farm
Chestnut Run Farm in a small artisan winery located in the Outer Coastal Plain viticultural area of New Jersey. We grow the fruit used in wine production here and make our distinct wines in very small batches.
Chestnut Run Farm produces three Asian pear wines and a Fuji apple wine. We grow eight different varieties of Asian pears, ferment the varieties separately or in specific combinations, and then blend the resulting wine to develop the three distinctly different Asian pear wines we bottle. We also grow Fuji apples and use them to produce our Fuji apple wine. All fruit used for wine production is grown here on our farm and we use only perfect, tree-ripened fruit for fermentation; no drops or otherwise lower grade fruit are used. If we would not pack a piece of fruit for table use, we do not use it in the production of our wine. Quality wines can only be made from quality fruit.

The Cape May peninsula has a unique climate. For the tender European wine grapes (Vitis vinifera), the Mid-Atlantic region is hostile: too cold, too humid, and too rainy. But lower Cape May’s climate is moderated by two large bodies of water, the Atlantic Ocean, and the Delaware Bay. The configuration and climate parallels a famous French wine-growing region, the Bordeaux, which lies between the Atlantic and the lower Gironde River. Like the area known as the Medoc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Sauvignon Blanc do very well in this climate.

In early 2004 Dan and Heather decided to start a vineyard and winery. They leased some land from Dan’s family who had been farming in Mickleton for over a century, planted some grapes and hoped for the best! Twelve years, 18 – 25 wines, and three little boys later, they are still moving forward with all the energy and creativity they started with! The name, by the way, came from the old wagonhouse on the Brown family farm. The idea was to build a tasting room someday, modeled after that very building. Ironically enough, the building that is NOW our tasting room was once the site of the original wagonhouse for the farm located at 1401 Route 45.
