Medford Village Autumn Wine & Jazz Fest Recently a part of southern New Jersey has been named the “Outer Coastal Plains Region”. To help celebrate this designation, the Township of Medford and the Historic Medford Village Associationhave invited NJ Wine Grower Association members from across New Jersey to sample their wines in our beautiful downtown. The festival, presented by Zallie’s Shoprite of Medford, is set for Sunday, September 30 2007 from 1 – 4 pm and will offer food, jazz, shopping and of course, wine tasting.

“Medford is more and more becoming a destination location for dining, shopping, fun activities and festivals,” stated Mayor Scott Rudder. “Since New Jersey is gaining in reputation for its wineries, it only makes sense that Medford, with its culture and charm, create a venue to bring together wine & jazz to help generate greater awareness of this regional designation. From my perspective, we get to support the local and area businesses while having a little fun.” With 28 wineries growing grapes in the state of New Jersey’s sandy soils, it is clear that it is an industry on the rise.

A wine event is not just good exposure for the wineries. Events of this magnitude typically draw over 2,000 visitors from Medford and beyond. “Supporting local business with events keeps our downtown thriving” states Marvin Coe, president of the Historic Medford Village Association. "Our mission is to protect, preserve, and promote Historic Main Street and Medford Village" Coe continues. Seven wineries from the New Jersey Wine Growers Association ( are confirmed to be in attendance; Amalthea Cellars from Atco, Auburn Road Vineyards from Pilesgrove, DiMatteo Vineyards in Hammonton, Heritage Vineyards of Richwood in Richwood, Placido’s Winery in Hammonton, Silver Decoy Winery in Robbinsville and Valenzano Winery in Shamong The festival is free, but to taste wines, you must purchase a bracelet once you get to the event. Bracelets cost $15 for adults 21 – 64 and $10 for adults 65+ and includes tasting wines as well as a collectible wine tasting glass, compliments of the Historic Medford Village Association, who is also running this event with support from the Township of Medford.
