Hours: Year Round

The Hawk Haven story begins back in 1940 when Johan Felix Wuerker traveled from Germany to Cape May, New Jersey and purchased the land that would one day become a vineyard and winery. Three generations later the farmland was still in the family and it became Todd Wuerker's turn to choose something to plant. The youngest of three sons, Todd and his older brother Ken planted the first grapevines, Cabernet Sauvignon, in 1997 before he was even of the legal drinking age. He knew nothing of wine but his roots in farming and his dedication to learning more about winemaking resulted in a very knowledgeable individual who not only produces award-winning wines but also consults for other vineyards.

Lovely afternoon at Hawk Haven Winery. Sampled 8 bottles of delicious wine-4 white and 4 red. The resling was the best I have had, since it is on the dry side instead of sweet. We even got a tour of the bottling operation. They have music, sangria Sunday and a road race coming up. Something for everyone! Check it out in Cape May, NJ area. Well worth the stop!

We visited Mother's Day weekend and had a lovely afternoon! We did the tasting, and sampled our way through the tasting menu. After the tasting, we bought a bottle of the one we liked best, ordered a very nice cheese tray (I think it was called the Vineyard Picnic) and enjoyed sitting on the patio with it. We will definitely return!

Good wine. Not just a "good local wine", but generally good wines. Some can be a little pricey if looking to buy a bottle, but nothing to exorbitant. The staff is engaging. You can feel their passion about making good wines. Can't go wrong with a tasting there.

What a quaint intimate winery experience. My sister and I when for a chocolate and wine pairing. The chocolate was nice the wine was better the bartender was personable and informative. The cheese board is a must, for the love of all that is good in the world you have to try to fig jam with the cow goat sheep milk cheese combo of delightfulness. The staff was so nice it felt like such a unique experience we'll definitely recommend and be back.

My friends and family came down to this winery for wine tasting (8 people), as soon we got there the girl at the front asked if we were there for the event or tasting, we answered that we there for tasting (the event was not starting there and there was only two people tasting), she told us with an attitude that we needed reservations. My wife asked if we can do 2 groups of 4 and she looked behind her to another person who shook her head no and once again with a attitude told us "next time make a reservation" with a snappy tone of voice. Would you turn away two groups who didn't know each other who came in at the same time? Cape May winery had an event and was very busy but still could accommodate us.
