Tim Schlitzer and Jerry Amabile, operator and owner, of Cream Ridge Winery are truly crazy about the importance of supporting local. Dedicated supporters of local wine, local produce, local farming and local land preservation, they took action through their Poco Locol sangria, a product made exclusively from locally grown grapes.
What is the inspiration behind this fun and fruity sangria? “We want to source as much as possible from local farms and vineyards to make our wine, but the local supply of grapes and other ingredients can’t meet the demand for the winery” explained Tim. This got Tim and Jerry, long-time friends and business partners, thinking about what they could do to help encourage more local farmers to grow grapes locally. They were inspired to dedicate a portion of proceeds from each bottle of Poco Locol sangria to Monmouth Conservation Foundation. The donations are put to into action through Monmouth Conservation Foundation’s programs to support and preserve farmland.
