2. Hawk Haven Vineyard & Winery
Rio Grande, NJ 08242
Saturday, December 12th
Have you ever wished there was a one-stop shop for all your wine and Christmas tree needs? And maybe there would also be live music, mulled wine, and holiday decorations. Well get my red suit and call me Santa because your Christmas wish is coming true! Hawk Haven Vineyard & Winery is hosting a holiday hoopla on Saturday, December 12th. Peruse a selection of live Christmas trees, wine in hand, and when you find the one, take it home or it will be tagged and have it ready for next-day pick-up at nearby Secluded Acres Farm & Garden Center. Bring the kids for a check-in with Santa (12pm-2pm) so he can get those wish list requests before heading back to the North Pole to finish preparing for his big night (parents, bring your cameras!). Enjoy wine tastings, including a special mulled wine, and listen to live music with plenty of holiday tunes. They’ll also have a selection of wreaths, holiday decorations, gift baskets and more. If you’re not in the Christmas spirit yet, you will be by the time you leave! Live music 2-5PM by The Honeyhawks.
