The Foodshed Alliance is a grassroots, non-profit devoted to promoting sustainable farming and locally grown, fresh, healthy food in northwestern New Jersey.
We believe that the future of our health, our land, and our communities depends, to great extent, on the existence of local farms–that farmers are the keystone to our connection with our food, the land and our sense of place.
It is this conviction that drives us to work, with farmers, consumers, and agricultural professionals to foster a self-sustaining “foodshed” that supports farmers, nourishes people, respects the land, and strengthens our communities.
Founded in 1980, Alba Estate Vineyard is nestled in the beautiful New Jersey upland valleys. Located in the heart of the scenic Musconetcong River Valley and centered in the Warren Hills viticulture region. The hillside estate is primarily focused on Pinot Noir, Dijon Clone Chardonnay, and Riesling, with minor planting of Gewurztraminer, Cabernet Franc, Barbera, Chambourcin, Vidal Blanc, and Cayuga. The site’s diversity of soils and slopes translates directly into the layers of complex flavors in our fruit. We craft our wines from the ground up; they are truly a unique expression of the land and the people who care for it.
