Bellview Winery is in the Outer Coastal Plain AVA, and produces wine from Blaufränkisch (Lemberger), Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cayuga White, Chambourcin, Chardonnay, Fredonia, Ives noir, Merlot, Muscat Ottonel, Niagara, Petit Verdot, Pinot gris, Syrah, Tinta Cão, Touriga Nacional, Traminette, Vidal Blanc, and Viognier grapes. Bellview also makes fruit wines from apples, blueberries, cranberries, and dandelions. It is one of only a handful of wineries in the United States that produces wine from dandelions (Taraxacum officinale). Bellview is also the only New Jersey winery that uses Tinta Cão and Touriga Nacional, which are red vinifera grapes indigenous to Portugal that are often used to make port. The winery was a participant at the Judgment of Princeton, a wine tasting organized by the American Association of Wine Economists that compared New Jersey wines to premium French vintages.


Bellview Winery is a member of the Garden State Wine Growers Association, the Outer Coastal Plain Vineyard Association, as well as two wine trails in their local region, including the Two Bridges Wine Trail and Pinelands Reserve Wine Trail. As a founding member of the Outer Coastal Plain Vineyard Association, Bellview Winery helped to form the creation of the Outer Coastal Plain AVA region, opening up opportunity for wineries in New Jersey to grow as their own unique destination.

Bellview operates under a Plenary Winery License from the New Jersey Division of Alcoholic Beverage Control, allowing it to produce an unrestricted amount of wine, as well as operate up to 15 off-premises sales rooms. As a result of further legislation in 2012, Bellview Winery also has the option to mail wine directly to some consumers, under new Direct Shipping laws in the state. Combined with Direct Shipping laws, Bellview's license allows the shipment of up to 12 cases per year to consumers In or Out-Of-State.
