Features, licensing, associations, and outlets

The entire winery facility is powered using solar energy.[10][11] Sharrott has a plenary winery license from the New Jersey Division of Alcoholic Beverage Control, which allows it to produce an unrestricted amount of wine, operate up to 15 off-premises sales rooms, and ship up to 12 cases per year to consumers in-state or out-of-state.[12][13] The winery is a member of the Garden State Wine Growers Association and the Outer Coastal Plain Vineyard Association.[14][15] In 2013, Sharrott became the first winery in the state to have a theatre as an outlet where its wine is sold by the glass to patrons.[16][17]
