Winery given time to “breathe” with Abacus taking care of back office operations
Abacus payroll specialists and Alloy Silverstein accountants have been living and working in the Hammonton region for nearly half a century and have become experts at helping farmers with their payroll. The Abacus team knows that shift work and seasonal additions to the workforce can create huge headaches for a farming concern. As third generation grape growers and wine makers, Charlie Tomasello and his brother, Jack, are experts at growing quality fruit in the area’s Outer Coastal Plain AVA and understand the value of farming out back office operations so they can focus on the juice.
The Tomasello name is synonymous with many of the finest wines produced in the east, and their Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot, Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Riesling are all award winners. Since 1933, Tomasello Winery has farmed 70 acres of premium grapes at their vineyard in Hammonton where they also host events and weddings. Tomasello wines are also sold through tasting rooms in several New Jersey locations including Smithville, Lambertville, and Freehold. With all that activity, Tomasello Winery maintains a dynamic employee roster that requires a keen eye for detail.
A long-time client of the accounting firm, Alloy Silverstein, the Tomasello brothers could see the value in having both payroll and accounting under one roof. Four years ago they signed on with Abacus Payroll, Inc. and have been very satisfied with the payroll provider ever since. “We don’t have time to worry about our payroll; it needs to be done right. We have a relationship with Alloy Silverstein, and we do all of our accounting with them so it was logical to go with Abacus because the taxes interface which makes it a nice, neat package.”
