Peppadew Fresh Vineyards was a winery in the Morganville section of Marlboro in Monmouth County, New Jersey.[2][3] Formerly a flower farm, grapes were first planted in 2011, and the winery opened to the public in 2012.[4] As of 2018, Peppadew's farm winery license issued by the Division of Alcoholic Beverage Control of the State of New Jersey no longer appeared on the state's list of licensees.[1]

Wines and other products[edit]

Peppadews, the fruit for which the winery was named, were first planted in 2008.[4] In 2012, Peppadew Fresh received a $260,000 grant from the United States Department of Agriculture to expand production and distribution.[5][6]

It was the only farm in the United States that cultivated peppadews, a pepper cultivar discovered in South Africa in 1996.[4][7] Peppadew Fresh was not located in one of New Jersey's three viticultural areas.[8][page needed]
