Although the Terhune family has operated the land on their orchards since 1975, the vineyard is relatively new. After acquiring a large amount of neighboring land, their daughter returned from San Francisco, enthusiastic about creating a vineyard on their new acquisition. Seven years later, they bottled their first wine, which was widely praised. As time goes on, their wines will only become more robust because of this family’s expert understanding of good fruit -- the foundation to good wine.

Randy Johnson and Ray Shea named their winery Laurita in ode to their mothers, Laura and Rita, to whom the New Jersey / New York winery is dedicated. If you’re looking for a destination vineyard, Laurita is it. This luxurious haven was created as a “third place” for people to gather (the first two “places” being home and work). They’re open year round but closed on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Before planning a visit, check out their detailed calendar, which lists dates that the winery is closed for private functions. This is also a beautiful place to hold a party or wedding.
