Wagonhouse Winery is a winery in South Harrison Township (mailing address is Swedesboro) in Gloucester County, New Jersey. Wagonhouse's original vineyard was first planted in 2004 in Mickleton, also in Gloucester County. The winery began sales of its wine in 2005, and opened a tasting room in South Harrison in 2011. Wagonhouse has 10 acres of grapes under cultivation, and produces 7,000 cases of wine per year. The winery is named for an old wagon house that is on their farm.
Wagonhouse Winery is located in the Outer Coastal Plain AVA, and produces wine from Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Merlot, Pinotage, Pinot gris, Sangiovese, Sauvignon blanc, Syrah, Vidal blanc, and Viognier grapes. Wagonhouse also makes fruit wines from almonds, apples, blueberries, cranberries, mangoes, peaches, pomegranates, and strawberries. The winery has a separate brand for their sweet wines, named "Three Boys Brand" after the owners' three sons. Wagonhouse is the only winery in New Jersey that produces wine from Pinotage, which is a red vinifera grape developed in South Africa in 1925.
