An Amazing Experience – Elevated

Any time spent at Willow Creek Winery is a memorable experience. Our estate and public buildings set on 50-acres with gorgeous gardens and vineyards that you can explore create the perfect backdrop to any time you spend in Cape May. This is why we have become a must-see destination in New Jersey.

We love when you make us part of your vacation itinerary. We are also grateful for the groups that come through here to celebrate bachelorettes (did you see us featured in a recent Philadelphia Inquirer article?!), birthdays, reunions and showers (just to name a few).

While a visit here to get together with friends and family will already be special, we offer a variety of exclusive a la carte and add-on packages that can be added to your reservation to enhance your experience. 

Options include:

  • pre-ordering a cheese board and sparkling wine for the table
  • adding more time to your reservation (reminder, our standard table reservation is 90 minutes)
  • renting out one of our 2 covered porches to make a private space for you for 3 hours
  • private yoga and meditation class in the vines or gardens

We have so many more options to make your time fully customized. If you are interested in enhancing a planned celebratory trip to Willow Creek, email: and someone from our Events Team will be in touch. If your event will have 25+ people, instead of email, please fill out our event inquiry form.

Cheers to a fall filled with your special moments and to celebrating them at Willow Creek Winery.

Engagement Season

Did you know that roughly 40% of engagements occur between Thanksgiving and Valentine’s Day?

With that in mind, I find myself meeting and touring couples through our Winery daily this time of year looking for the perfect venue for their dream wedding, and they all have the same question – how long will my preferred date be available? The answer – it depends. It may only be a week, a day, or an hour before another couple arrives who is ready to book that date.

Choosing a wedding venue is never easy and is probably one of, if not the most, important decision to make when planning a wedding. My advice to prospective clients is to ask themselves whether they can envision themselves at a venue and how it feels to imagine that day. If they can picture their friends and family as clear as day dancing the night away, they’ve found their perfect venue.

It’s easy to be overwhelmed with the number of options available to newly engaged couples. Over the last few years, the wedding industry has surged, making it even more difficult for couples to parse out the truly experienced wedding professionals from the hundreds of names that fill the pages of wedding websites.

So what makes a Willow Creek Wedding stand out? Just ask some of our past clients!
