Bucks County is a northwestern suburb of Philadelphia, PA. Wine tasting is a popular and fun time at a variety of wineries in Bucks County.

Wine tasting in Bucks County is one of the key things to do in the area. If you are visiting or living in Bucks County, take a tour and raise your glass at one or many of the local wineries. You can start by considering The Bucks County Wine Trail, with stops that are minutes apart and include Sand Castle Winery, Buckingham Valley Vineyards, New Hope Winery, and many more! It is a fact that the combination of rolling hills, the moderate climate and general conditions make it one of the best wine producing regions on the East Coast!

Some of the upcoming events include Arts Festival Weekend, which will include wine tasting and will showcase local artists like Craig Hacket, Andrea Santoro, Kevin Forest, B.A. Stoll, and John Matthews, among others. Other Events include Spring Tour South on May 15th and Spring Tout North on May 22nd.

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.

    GREAT info! I’ve always thought local wines in general were underrated and make it a point to give them as gifts when applicable. I never realized the number of wineries in the area; Bucks County never ceases to amaze me with all it has to offer!

    Great article! Pennsylvania’s rich and fertil soil makes it perfect for wineries. We’re very fortunate to have these essentially right in our own backyard.

    Since I moved to Doylestown I confess snobing local wineries.
    I lived in Italy for several years and abitato with barbera,
    barolo and some great chiante of the “gallo nero” of Tuscany.
    Well Frank thanks for opening my eyes and carving my nose and
    taste to some very good home libations…. Michael
