How do I reserve a Private Tent for WineFestNJ 2019

That is the question, isn’t it?  The reason most people don’t know the answer is because there are less tents available than people who want to rent one. For this reason we make the process to acquire one a little obscure.  This tends to weed out the people who only ‘kinda want a tent’ vs. the people  ‘who really, really need a private party tent to host their WineFest party’.  With that said, the process is as follows:

Sometime in January (maybe February or March) we will send out an email newsletter providing the date that WineFest Private Party Tents go on sale.  On this date, Private Party Tents will go on sale on our website and will be sold on a first come / first served basis.   This may be done at a weird time.  Last year it was at midnight on a Sunday evening.  Again, we do this to make your chances of acquiring a tent much higher.  Most likely tents will sell out the same day that they are released.

The only way to receive this email is to sign up to receive our newsletter or to ‘like’ our official facebook page.  You can do this by entering your name in the signup box on our homepage at  We will also make one Facebook post about the Private Party Tent sale day at .  This provides 2 methods for you to stay informed about the sale.

As usual, we retain the right to change our policies at any time regarding WineFest and other public events.  We may even go so far as to change the text in a post that you thought you read to something completely different, which you will have no definitive way to tell has been changed – screenshots withstanding.  Of course we will try not to do any such thing; but, we just want you to know, it is a possibility.  Our only goal at WineFest is to provide the best possible experience for the most amount of people possible.

Holiday Hours

Twelve Wines of Xmas

Winemaker’s Ballroom Renovation

Valenzano Family Winery will be starting an interior renovation of the Winemaker’s Ballroom on January 13, 2019.  The renovations will consist of a total color change of the stamped concrete, walls, trim and coffered ceilings.  The winery will also be installing new carpet in addition the the new hardwood dance floor that was installed in 2018.  A stone accent wall, matching the stone fireplace, will be installed adjacent to the barrel room which will include large wood block shelving with dozens of large candles framed in by 2 large stone piers.  New technology LED lighting will be installed to accent the ceiling and service bar.  The mahogany service bar will be receiving a new granite counter top to match the new color scheme of the room.  The winery is doing away with their terracotta and light brown color scheme.  The walls will be painted an off-white with all the trim and accents a dark brown to match the mahogany bar.  The stamped concrete floors will be transformed from terracotta to a more neutral grey/white with antiquing accents.
