It's Harvest Time at
 Villa Milagro Winery.
Ride The Harvest Train

Harvest time comes to The Warren County Winery Train.
Travel the scenic banks of the Delaware River on a steam engine drawn train.  Enjoy fall foliage as you pass through historic hamlets and farmland ready for fall harvest.  Then tour the vineyards of Villa Milagro Vineyards where grapes are plump and ready to pick.  Next learn how grapes are turned into the delicious elixir we call wine.  Taste wine paired with hot appetizers then re-board your train for your return trip.
The Annual Tour of Historic Pohatcong
Ride back in time on the Delaware River Railroad Excursions behind steam locomotive #142.  The train will take you to just North of "Pinchers Point" along the Delaware where you will board a bus on a docent guided tour of three beautiful historic houses.  You will receive an informative brochure with plenty of information about the houses. After the house tour the bus will take you to Villa Milagro Vineyards for Hors D'orvres and wine tasting, then back to the steam train for your homeward bound trip to Phillipsburg.
