Wine Tasting on the Bank of the Musconetcong River

In case any of us care for wine on the bank of the Musconetcong River--excellent date with the wife--I'm passing along the press release copied into this post below. I won't make this event, but I think highly of the MWA and have dealt with Alan Hunt, the Director, so here it is, whether for passing interest or getting up and going to it.

Musconetcong Watershed Association to host 15th Annual Wine Tasting on the Musky

The Musconetcong Watershed Association (MWA) will host a wine-tasting on October 14th from 2:00 to 5:00 at the Pavilion at the Warren County Rod & Gun Club.  Proceeds benefit the MWA, and a portion of the ticket price is tax-deductible.  Donation is $30 pre-paid or $35 at the door.  Call 908-537-7060 or visit for tickets.

Come enjoy a relaxing fall afternoon on the banks of the Wild and Scenic Musconetcong River.  Guests will enjoy dozens of fine wines as well as a curated selection of craft beer and hard ciders, thanks to our sponsor Perryville Wine & Spirits.  The tasting will include selections from local producers as well as an interesting assortment from around the world.  To complement your tasting, we will have smoked trout courtesy of the Musky Trout & Fish Hatchery as well as light appetizers and a stemless commemorative wine glass, all included with the price of admission.

There will be live music and will feature a tricky tray with some great prizes like an Amazon Echodot or a $50 spa gift-card!  MWA will also host our annual rubber ducky regatta on the Musconetcong River at the event where guests could win 50 percent of the proceeds of sponsoring a duck.

This year, MWA is marking our 25th Anniversary as an organization, and we have a lot to celebrate.  As a result of our river restoration efforts the American Shad is now back in the river!  We are also hard at work preserving the historic Asbury Mill, which has its 150th birthday this year.  The MWA has exciting programs in Education and Water Quality Science as well as a brand new project to create a waterfront park in Asbury (Warren County).  Come join us to have some fun and meet new friends all while supporting a great cause.

MWA is a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to protecting and improving the quality of the Musconetcong River and its Watershed, including its natural and cultural resources.

Thank you,
