Brook Hollow Winery to Offer Free Wedding to Disabled Veteran

Brook Hollow Winery, Columbia, NJ
Thursday, January 11, 2018 to Wednesday, February 14, 2018
Regular Business Hours

Brook Hollow Winery in Columbia, NJ, a member of the Garden State Wine Growers Association, is making an offer designed just for our wounded warriors. The winery, which recently opened a brand new banquet center in Knowlton across the road from the winery, is looking to honor one of these brave heroes that returned home disabled with an all-expense paid wedding. From now until Valentine’s Day 2018 when the winner will be randomly drawn, disabled American veterans can apply online for the chance to be selected for what Brook Hollow Winery is calling its “Warrior Wedding”. “We are proud of our service men and women who have given so much for all of us to be able to live free in the United States of America, the most incredible country in the world. Some of these brave men and women came back from their deployments disabled, while others gave the ultimate sacrifice of their life. Brook Hollow Winery would like to honor one of these brave heroes by providing them with a day they will remember for the rest of their lives,” said Paul Ritter, owner of Brook Hollow Winery. The contest is open to legal residents of the United States who have served in the military and have “disabled veteran status” meaning a veteran who is entitled to compensation (or who but for the receipt of military retired pay would be entitled to compensation) under laws administered by the Secretary, or a person who was discharged or released from active duty because of a service-connected disability and are of legal age to be married in the state of New Jersey. Brook Hollow Winery is working with a number of partners to make this a very special day for the veteran selected. Local establishments, including Blairstown Museum for trolley photos; The Cozy Cabin for cupcakes; the Rosemary Inn for one free night stay; Q Classic Catering; Feather Artistry photography and Lunden Fog & Son musical entertainment, are among the businesses that have already signed on the participate. Brook Hollow Winery hopes that a local TV news organization will help by offering to host the drawing for the winner live on a news cast. Brook Hollow Winery is a family farm nestled in the heart of the scenic Delaware Water Gap area of New Jersey. Each hand-crafted wine is fermented, aged, and bottled by the Ritter family.
