Heading out of the pandemic, the Bucks County Wine Trail has the perfect fix for socializing and sampling locally made wines. The wine trail, which is comprised of six family-owned wineries, is again offering its popular Passport to Bucks wine tasting card.
Beginning June 1 and continuing through Aug. 31, wine enthusiasts can make a day, weekend or several outings of sampling locally made wines at the five participating wineries: Bishop Estate Vineyard and Winery; Crossing Vineyards and Winery; Rose Bank Winery; Rushland Ridge Vineyards; and Sand Castle Winery. Passport to Bucks cards are on sale now for $40 each. Only a limited quantity of cards are available.
Wine-lovers seeking a sampling of French winemaking can taste it at the wineries along the Bucks County Wine Trail. The area’s climate and growing conditions are like those of France’s Bordeaux region, which help winemakers create a robust selection of Chardonnay, Chambourcin and Cabernet Sauvignon, among dozens of other special, dessert and seasonal favorites.
Bucolic Bucks County, with its scenic views and rolling hills, is a hub, in its own rite, for award-winning wine. Six family-owned, Bucks County-based vineyards and wineries dot the local countryside, offering a variety of tastes for every palate. Each Passport card entitles bearer to one of the following: a complimentary wine flight, wine tasting, or micro tasting at each of the five participating wineries (type of wine samples available at winery’s discretion). New for 2021: Cardholders can also collect a unique wine glass charm from each winery (while supplies last).
Given customer concerns related to the coronavirus, this year’s Passport to Bucks wine samplings will largely be held outdoors at each winery. However, indoor service may also be available at customer’s request and as space permits. Groups of six or more should call the winery and make reservations prior to visiting.
Instead of a stamp as is commonplace when passport-holders visit foreign countries, the Passport to Bucks bearer, with each winery visit, will have his or her card punched and as supplies last, will receive a custom wine glass charm from each winery. Once all five wineries have been visited, the card will be entered into a drawing for a chance to win two cases of locally made wine.
Wine enthusiasts can make passport stops at their own pace, over the course of a weekend, or a few weekends this summer. No matter when you choose to visit Bucks County, the Bucks County Wine Trail invites wine-lovers from near and far to slow down, take it all in, and sample a wide range of locally made passport-worthy wines.
The following Bucks County Wine Trail wineries are participating in this year’s Passport to Bucks: Bishop Estate Vineyard and Winery, Crossing Vineyards and Winery, Rose Bank Winery, Rushland Ridge Vineyards and Sand Castle Winery. Passport to Bucks cards can be purchased at each of the wineries, as well as Visit Bucks County.
