Pheasant Hill Vineyard began in 1999 when friends and family helped Bob Wilson plant the first Chardonnay vines in the south facing field located below the Hunt House. His goal was to develop a vineyard that would produce best in class wines. The first wine was made in 2004 and hand crafted Chardonnay wine has now been available in small supplies since 2007. After only four years of wine making our 2008 Pheasant Hill Chardonnay won "Gold Best In Class" at the 2010 International Wine and Spirit Competition. Other vines that have now been planted are Pinot Noir, Syrah, Grenache, Mourvedre, and Viognier. Additional vines have been added each year since 1999. The limited supplies are available through the tasting room at Unionville Vineyard, near Ringoes, NJ.


Southern Exposure

Planting on a southern exposure increases hours of sun on the vine allowing for the ripest, richest harvest of fruit.

Well Drained, Neutral Soil

Our location on the southern edge of the Sourland Mountains is on a 12% south facing slope with a neutral ph, well drained soil, over sand stone, shale, and clay--perfect for growing grapes.


Unlike California, our climate in Hopewell, NJ is quite similar to Burgundy and other wine regions of France.


Unionville's winemaker, Cameron Stark, has the skill and experience few possess for creating wines true to the earth and of the highest quality.


Our grapes are grown, crushed, aged, and bottled--totally in the Garden State.

Family Owned

We're proud to be a small NJ winery.


We've won the best awards in the business.
