Passport in hand, wine lovers take to the countryside of France and Italy for fine, world-renowned wines.
Visitors can do the same in bucolic Bucks County, a hub, in its own rite, for award-winning wine, scenic views and rolling hills!
Beginning June 1 and continuing through August 31, 2021, the Bucks County Wine Trail is beckoning visitors to return for a favorite adventure – this one with leisurely, self-guided travel (and wine) as its focus. Guests are invited to purchase a passport and enjoy a world-class taste at five of the wineries on the wine trail. Our wineries will offer ONE of the following at their discretion: A complimentary wine flight, wine tasting, or a micro-tasting. (Due to COVID-19 and limited indoor capacities, this year’s Passport to Bucks will be held primarily outside).
Instead of a stamp as is commonplace when passport-holders visit foreign countries, the Passport to Bucks bearer will have his or her card punched with each winery visit. As an added bonus, the first 250 guests to visit will receive a one-of-a-kind wine glass charm from each of the five participating wineries! Visit all five and collect all of these limited-edition collectibles.
The wine trail is made up of six family-owned, Bucks County-based vineyards and wineries that dot the local countryside, offering a variety of tastes for every palate. Wineries participating in the 2021 Passport to Bucks are: Bishop Estate Vineyard and Winery, Crossing Vineyards and Winery, Rose Bank Winery, Rushland Ridge Vineyard and Winery, and Sand Castle Winery.
Once all five wineries have been visited, the passport 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, a few weekends or all summer long. 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.
Please note: Groups of 6 or more should call the winery ahead of time to ensure adequate space is available.
About Passport to Bucks
The Bucks County Wine Trail’s Passport to Bucks began in 2016 as a way to encourage visitations to all of our family owned local wineries. The successful and wildly popular program has continued each year, with the exception of 2020. For 2021, the wineries have decided to offer Passport to Bucks in the summer months (instead of fall through spring) as a primarily outdoor effort to ease concerns of guests who may feel more comfortable outdoors given the pandemic. Passports cost $40 and will be available for purchase at Visit Bucks County, 3207 Street Road, Bensalem, as well as at each of the participating wineries: Bishop Estate Vineyard and Winery; Crossing Vineyards and Winery; Rose Bank Winery; Rushland Ridge Vineyard and Winery; and Sand Castle Winery.
