Tasting America: New Jersey’s Bellview Winery

“The last thing people associate New Jersey with is fine wine, mostly because of negative pop culture images,” says Jim Quarella, owner and winemaker at Bellview Winery, less than an hour west of Atlantic City, adding “Most people think that New Jersey is all gangsters, trash, smells funny, etc. They've only ever experienced maybe Newark or the New Jersey Turnpike.
