Our Story

A passion for fine wine, great experiences and lasting memories.

Our winemaking story started decades ago when The School of Wine opened as one of the only winemaking schools in the region. Fast forward and our story continues as a successful South Jersey-based financial planning professional, intrigued with the intricacies of winemaking, became a loyal student. Driven by his love of making wine and the memories behind every bottle, he purchased The School of Wine in 2016.

Today, The School of Wine at Kennedy Cellars teaches both beginner and advanced wine enthusiasts the precision of balancing both art and science to create their very own wine.  In an unpretentious and fun atmosphere, our expert winemakers and onsite sommelier work hand-in-hand with our students from grape selection to bottling. While our students have produced high quality varietals and award-winning wines, they’ve also discovered the experience of winemaking is much more than simply creating great wine.  Behind every barrel and each winemaker stands a great story and memory for a lifetime.

The journey of three generations – grandfather, son and grandson – who make the time each and every year to make wine together. 

An engaged couple, marking the beginning of their life together, making their own barrel to share as a memorable wedding favor and saving a special bottle for a first anniversary toast.

The business entrepreneur and his employees celebrating a successful year by making a barrel and not only sharing the wine amongst themselves, but making a bottle for their customers as a sign of personal appreciation.

We all have a story to tell.  We invite you to the School of Wine to make yours a memorable one that can be shared with those that matter most.
