Cava Winery & Vineyard
For Anthony Riccio, owner of Cava Winery & Vineyard, winemaking is in his blood. The former farmhand took a trip to the Tuscan countryside, where he watched workers harvest, press, and ferment grapes by hand. Inspired by their craftsmanship, and eager to pay tribute to his heritage, Riccio carefully packed the art of Italian winemaking in his suitcase and brought it back to his home in Morris County.<p> The old-world process proved perfectly suited to its new-world environment. The New Jersey soil sports a mineral content ideal for grape growing, and the resulting wines bear the aromatic mark of their idyllic origins. Their unique properties haven’t gone unnoticed—Cava’s D’oro red blend medaled at the San Francisco Chronicle’s wine competition, thanks to its touches of blackberry, cherry and currant; so did the Ferro, a hearty red ideally paired with spiced meat or a barbecue swallowed whole. Should palates prove curious about the carefully composed bottles, weekend wine tastings pour samples for passersby.
