Warren Hills
The Warren Hills AVA, one of three in New Jersey, is located in the western reaches of the state, near the Delaware River. While the total area covers slightly more than 140,000 acres, only 80 acres are planted to vines. The principal variety is Riesling, while hybrid varieties such as Chambourcin and Seyval Blanc account for most of the plantings. The climate is continental, with a few spots warm enough to ripen Riesling, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay; soils are a mix of limestone and silt with some rocky terrain. Production is small; the wines are mostly priced at $15 and under. (Wine/Appellations)
