Mother’s Day Picnic

May 13, 2018 @ 11:00 am - 4:00 pm

WEATHER UPDATE:  Sunday’s forecast calls for a ‘chance of showers’.  This is not going to cause us to cancel the festival.  If you do not wish to attend the event under these circumstances your tickets can be redeemed for a $15.00 value towards any purchase made at our tasting room during regular business hours or during Thursday Night Dinner.


Take mom out the the vineyards for our annual Mother’s Day Picnic.  Enjoy great entertainment, wine tasting food trucks and crafters.  This event is sold out every year please get your tickets early.  This year we will have a large selection of food trucks and crafters along with all of our newly released wines available for sampling.  We limit ticket sales to this event to ensure visitors have plenty of room to spread and and enjoy the festival grounds with their family.  The limited crowd also ensures there is no lines for food trucks and never a line for wine tastings.  All of Valenzano Winery’s wines will be available for sale by the bottle along with case discounts.

Make Valenzano Winery’s Mother’s Day Picnic your new family tradition!

Live entertainment featuring Legacy Band:









Tickets include souvenir wine glass, access to live concert, crafters, food vendors  and tasting of up to 8 half ounce samples of Valenzano Wines.  Tickets can be purchased at the winery during regular business hours.  Tickets will be sold as $15.00 Gift Cards which will also be redeemable for entrance to the Mother’s Day Picnic.   In the event of severe winds, projected heavy rains, natural disaster, or any other reason decided by Valenzano Family Winery, our Mother’s Day Picnic will be cancelled. This ticket will then become a gift card towards any future purchase. There will be no cash refunds if event is cancelled.  The ‘Gift Card Ticket’ can be redeemed for its face value.  The ‘Gift Card Ticket’ is not redeemable for cash, or credit.  The ‘Gift Card Ticket’ can not be used to purchase additional gift cards.  The ‘Gift Card Ticket’ can be used to purchase tickets to WineFestNJ 2018.  The ‘Gift Card Ticket’ can be redeemed for purchases made at our tasting room at 1090 Route 206, Shamong, NJ during regular business hours.  This ticket will not become a ‘manufacturer’s coupon’ can can not be redeemed at other wine stores.  ‘Gift Card Tickets’ can be redeemed for Thursday Night Dinners at the winery.

        Are there tickets still available. Do I have to come to the facility to purchase tickets. Or can I call to purchase.

          Limited tickets remain for purchase, these must be purchased in person at the facility to provide the patron with a physical ticket to redeem for entry at the gate, ticket sales are NOT offered over the phone or provided at the gate on Mother’s Day

        I see there are limited tickets. I planned on paying when I get there; is this NOT an option. I am reading comments and it says there are non at the gate… I come every year!

          This is not an option, tickets are presale only as advertised. admission is not provided at the gate so we have an accurate count of guests on our property and utilizing the facilities, tasting wine, etc.

        • Danny Roberts
          Danny Roberts says:

          They are not – for insurance purposes as well as crowd management – all attendees to our grounds MUST purchase admission to be accounted for. Children’s tickets for under 14 years of age are $10.

            I was told children under two are free by the person in the testing room who sold me our tickets…. I won’t gave a ticket for my 1 year old. Per the employee at your winery. Is this incorrect?

    Why are we not able to purchase tickets online? I’ve attended the last two years and always purchased online. I don’t live nearby.

      We had a lot of complaints last year about our online ticket sales system. To reduce these complaints we are selling tickets for our large events (WineFestNJ 2018) through EventBrite.com which tacks on $2.00+ per ticket. For small events like Mothers Day, we decided to eliminate this expense for our customers and simply sell tickets out of our 3 physical locations.

      Tickets are available for purchase at the winery tasting room during regular business hours and during our Thursday night dinner service. Tickets can also be purchased at our Outlets at the Columbus Farmers Market and the Berlin Farmers Market.

    Heather says:

    I would like to purchase 4-5 tickets tomorrow at the Berlin Auction/Mart location. Are there enough tickets available there?

    • Danny Roberts
      Danny Roberts says:

      Tickets are sold at the Berlin location, but we cannot guarantee quantity this close to the event.

    • Danny Roberts
      Danny Roberts says:

      Tickets will NOT be available at the gate. Mother’s Day tickets are expected to sell out by Wednesday May 9th – patrons are encouraged to get them while they last as there will be no means of transaction to provide at our gate.

      You can use a credit card to purchase wine at our festivals. Some food vendors take credit cards, some do not. There is always the issue of cellular connectivity at festivals which may cause interruptions in credit card processing so it is always better to visit an ATM machine before attending (just in case credit card processing is down).
