“Great Surprise”
Reviewed 6 May 2014

As an European and a dedicated wine lover I am always interested in wineries a little off the beaten path - and Hawk Haven - in New Jersey ( never thought about wine from NJ before) - could be called that way. The wines (red and whites) were surprisingly good - and the winery also has nice surroundings. A tasting is $7 (for at least 8 wines when I done it) - and the wines are reasonable priced. It was really fun - and I know that I will definitely return to NJ and its wines.

“Enjoyable and educational”
Reviewed 2 May 2014 via mobile

Staff was great tasted eight wines 4 white and 4 red. I like the Pinot Grigio and the Riesling. But the Merlot and Talon were awesome and very yummy harrier red wine. Our pourer was very nice and told us a lot of information about the area, grapes and the wines.

We visited the Hawk Haven Vineyard on a rainy afternoon. What a great thing to do on a rainy day! The wines are great, and the staff is very knowledgeable. We will go back!

“Mighty Fine Wine”
Reviewed 26 March 2014

This was actually our second visit to Hawk Haven. We returned to purchase more of the Tallon, one of the red wines they produce. But more on that latter. Both times our tastings been fun thanks to a knowledgable good natured staff. This time around they were offering up a " Barrel Tasting" of the 2013 White Wines after we completed our sampling in the tasting room. The barrel tasting put a little different spin on tasting as your samples are drawn directly from the barrel by the Winemaker Todd. These wines will be bottled in April. I like that they bottle only what they grow, even if it means selling out of the more popular lables like the Tallon Red that I drove there specifially to buy. Oh well there will be more in April. I think their wines price out reasonably, from $14 - $35.

“Entertaining tasting and good wines”
Reviewed 23 March 2014

A tasting was included in our Groupon package, and we were not disappointed! Wines here are on the dry side, which I enjoy. The gentlemen who provided the tasting were both informative and entertaining.
