Our Winery Story

The Cream Ridge Winery was founded in 1988 by Tom and Joan Amabile.  Since 1988 the Amabile family have enjoyed the passion for wine and the joy of spending time with our customers who we prefer to call our friends. 

Today, Tim and Jackie Schlitzer along with Jerry Amabile & Winemaker Mike Grouch now manage the winery and bring the Amabile and Schlitzer families together as we move towards the next 30 years of wine making joy! Come and visit us soon and try our wines, enjoy our 14 acres of vineyard and sign up for the CR WINE Club!  Together we can share the passion for wine, friendship, fun, food and conversation that Tom and Joan envisioned over 30 years ago! 

From time to time we receive inquiries about hosting weddings. As much as we’d love to partake in your big day, we aren’t set up for such an event. However, our friends over at  Laurita Winery and Working Dog Winery offer beautiful wedding services and they are only eight miles away!
