Jersey Bites’ Founder, Publisher and Executive Editor, Deborah Smith, will be on hand to share a “Jersey Bites Journey,” which will give guests a real look at the history of JerseyBites.com. She’ll be speaking at 1 p.m. in the Speakers’ Tent. Since launching (practically by mistake) in 2007, our site has grown into a collaborative community of more than 40 writers, 25,000 readers every month and more than 20,000 social media followers. It was the catalyst to her launch of a marketing company that has become a thriving business and often leads Deborah and the Jersey Bites team to famous food personalities, exciting speaking engagements, judging food competitions, five-star culinary events and more.
The Speakers’ Tent will also welcome winemaker Cameron Stark, the Fulper Farms cheese maker, and John Cifelli, Executive Director of the Garden State Wine Growers Association who will take the audience “From terroir to typicity, by exploring the differences between beer, spirits, and wine, and sharing what makes wine unique and special.” Beyond that, guests will enjoy wine tastings, food demonstrations, vineyard walks and winery tours with the winemakers. Kids will love the event’s flower pot painting for Mom, Ted Yurastis- magician on the move, food vendors, craft vendors, a bounce house, rides with Duke—the world’s largest Amish pony. The day will also include a wine trivia contest that will reward a rare wine aficionado with a special library bottle.
Bring chairs or a blanket, and enjoy the little winery changing the world on 90 acres of farmland in Ringoes, New Jersey. Price of admission includes a wine tasting flight of eight wines, a Unionville logo glass to keep, access to all tours, music, talks and demonstrations, and all kids activities. Items from food and craft vendors are not included with admission. To purchase tickets visit http://www.unionville.bpt.me.
