Before You Go — Advice from the Bucks County Wine Trail:
Before your exciting adventure, we would like to share some tips and insights with you to be sure guests have the most enjoyable experience possible. Whether planning your first group tasting with friends, or a quiet afternoon with a loved one, there are some general things to expect and guidelines to follow.
Planning your trip: With nine wineries on the Trail, time may not allow you to visit them all in one day. We recommend visiting the Map page and picking your route ahead of time. You may also want to hire a touring company to drive you. Bucks County offers major tourist attractions, world class restaurants, and many charming B&Bs, so consider an overnight stay.
Enjoying the seasonal varieties: Our wineries offer new releases throughout the year; so visit during different seasons. You can discover the new wines and buy your favorites before they sell out.
Planning private/group tastings: Please call ahead if you are coming in a group or would like a private tasting or tour; wineries need to staff appropriately to ensure everyone gets the attention they need. Tasting fees and offerings vary at each winery, so asking ahead of time will help you budget for the day.
Bringing children on the Trail: The Tasting Rooms are part of an adult experience that takes place on working farms, active processing facilities, and busy parking lots. If you do choose to bring children, you will be required to accompany them at all times.
Minding your alcohol intake: Our wineries pour controlled amounts of their wines for tasting; however, tasting at several wineries in close succession may cause one to unwittingly consume alcohol above the legal limit. If you intend to visit more than one winery in a day, we recommend you employ a designated driver or limit your wine consumption accordingly.
Enjoy responsibly: The Bucks County Wine Trail wants you and your party to have fun and enjoy responsibly. Please remember you are visiting local, family-run farms, and inappropriate behavior is not tolerated.
