Heritage Station

Heritage Station As you drive along Rt 322, in the farming town known as Richwood, NJ, you will notice many changes that are widespread in all New Jersey farming communities – new homes statuesquely standing on the once vast farmland. With one exception, along this country road, a sight long lost in this community since the late 1700’s – grapevines. The extent of this beautiful renewal can be seen by the clean lines of rows of grape vines visible up and down Rt 322. At the eve of the millennium, the symbol of renewal was defined at the moment the “grape”arrived. It was defined by the more forward vision of a Richwood fifth generation farming family, the Heritage. There has been a Heritage family farming the land of Richwood since 1851, mostly fruit orchards – peaches, apples, plums, nectarines. In 2001, Bill and Penni Heritage (who coined themselves as the stewarts of the land) planted a more commercially successful crop than the fruit trees – merlot, chardonnay, cabernet sauvignon, cabernet franc. Today, those with sharp eyes will notice other types of vines –chambourcin and concord; test blocks of petite verdot, pinot gris, sauvignon blanc, malbec, pinot noir, sangiovese, syrah and grenache. . Heritage’s grapes and wine are affected to a great extent by the farm’s unusual climate. It contributes to the grapes greater concentration of flavor. The early European wine success proved fatal to the farmers; as the commercial vineyards expanded and flourished, the farmers and their families were dispossessed.
