Situated on cliffs overlooking the Delaware and Musconetcong Rivers, Villa Milagro Vineyards’ elevation offers you expansive, breathtaking views of 4 counties in 2 states. The vineyard, cascading down a south-facing slope, enjoys limestone soils, typical of the American Viticultural Area (AVA) in which it is located – Warren Hills Appellation.
Using organic and sustainable practices, the vineyard is a safe haven for many migratory and resident birds, including American Kestrels and Eagles along its Delaware River banks. Sections of the 104 acres Farmland Preserved property are dedicated to “conservation strips” and natural woodlands where native species of New Jersey wildflowers and plants provide food and shelter for birds, red fox, deer and other local critters. You are always welcome to walk this “place of miracles” (Spanish translation of “Villa Milagro”) to explore and discover.
Ten varieties of French, Italian and American vinifera are grown in the vineyard. From these, “Chef du vin” Dr. Audrey Cross and her husband, Steve Gambino, create unique blends in the style of traditional European wines. Blends range from French style dry red, Bordeaux blends, like “Suave” and “Sombra” to light and delicate blends like “Rosita” and “Delicato.” Sold only at the vineyard and a small number of restaurants and Farmers Markets, Villa Milagro’s wines are a rare and delightful find for fine wine collectors as well as for everyday table use.
