The worst venue booking experience I have ever had in my life! Winery owner and her event coordinator sidekick are the most unreasonable, aggressive, and unprofessional people I have ever come across in this industry. I have no idea how this place stays in business. The space itself is nice, and, ultimately, I threw my daughter a lovely Sweet 16 birthday celebration despite the extreme discomfort of having to be in the same room with these people, but, no amount pleasantries from the staff on the day of could undo the months of bullying and unethical price gouging that left me feeling nothing but regret about holding such a special event there. I will never again book this venue and I am more than happy to share my 6-page scathing review detailing their abusive communications and intolerable nickel-and-diming with anyone who is considering renting space at Hopewell Valley Vineyards. Trust me, it is not worth it!

This is a great place to go on a Friday night with some friends to drink some wine, eat some food and hang out. We were surprised when we pulled up and the place was packed!! They had a DJ, lots of tables and even a big tent set up with more tables underneath. The line to get the wine was slow moving. My husband ended up buying a few bottles just so he wouldn’t have to get in line again! The wine was good, but you really come here for the atmosphere. The weather was perfect on the night we went, so that helped as well. We ate beforehand, but people said the cheese plate was good, and the pizza was decent. I definitely recommend checking this out one night, when the weather is nice. It was just something different to do on a Friday night!

A great place to enjoy and relax. Everything-wine,food,people, atmosphere. is good .The wines are enjoyable,Unlike at some other "Snobbish" wineries where they treat you as if there are doing the favor to you, everyone at this place is friendly, helpful and professional.Another big plus is their fresh,wood fired pizzas and salads.Everything is so fresh. There is ample seating and live music on some evenings.Your visit is always very enjoyable.I have been visiting for a number of years and am glad that they have maintained their standards well.If you plan a visit,please be ready to spend at least an hour or two.It is worth it. And please do inform Violetta Neri, the owner how your experience was.She is normally at the front keeping an eye on everything.

Do not visit this place ! This is an absolute house of horrors. Yes people Caronavirus is real! It’s not a joke! Servers that were pouring wine and handling food were NOT wearing masks. This is a disregard for life and an insult and those the disease has killed. No you are not immune!!! Stupid! Careless! Reckless!

Met a couple of friends here on Sunday and enjoyed the experience very much. Tastings are very reasonable, and it's nice to have a glass of a favorite selection while you socialize with friends. The Barbera was especially good. There was live music, which was great but somewhat loud for the size of the room, especially if you want to engage in conversation. Up a few steps is another room with a small gift shop that allowed you to both converse and enjoy the music. The building itself is cheerful and the staff is helpful. It was nice to find such a place in this area of NJ. I wish I hadn't made dinner plans for that evening so I could have tried their wood-fired (my absolute favorite) pizza. Maybe next time!

Good wine, good service, great place to sit back and have a nice evening with friends. Wines are good relative to other local wineries. Food menu is limited but pizza is outstanding.

This winery has amazing wine! They have a very good Merlot wine! I mean everything is good but that was one of my favorites! I wish I lived closer! The lady who did our tasting was very nice as well.

We are a family with a teenager and a younger child. We LOVE to frequent the vineyard on their pizza nights (Friday or Saturday). The ambience is beautiful and serene. The live bands are always a plus. It’s so nice to see families, friends and couples enjoy their evening with each other. The entire staff is friendly and welcoming. The food is delicious. My son loves their burrata and their pizzas are to die for! A must visit for a nice date night of family night out.

Every Friday & Saturday they have music and merlot. Small plates or individual pizzas with some music. All add up to an enjoyable evening out. Their wines are good and pair with the food served. When Chris from Rave On is playing arrive early if you want a seat. He is great but a big draw.

Absolutely fantastic stop - great customer service, a wide selection of wines, beautiful indoor (coated and covered in copper) and an opulent outside (which we couldn't utilize thanks to the clouds and storming).

We settled on a variety of wines, with the upcoming holidays, as we were passing through the area. We're looking to share the experience (and the story of the visit) with our family come Yule =)
