Holiday Celebration

The holiday season is the perfect time for mulled wines and festive cookies. The seven wineries of the Bucks County Wine Trail have plenty of each to help ring in the holidays. Come and celebrate during the annual Holiday Celebration on Saturday and Sunday, Dec. 10-11.

Visitors can experience the beauty of the wineries decorated for the holidays while enjoying delicious spiced wines, sampling Christmas cookies and artisanal cheeses, and relaxing with the sounds of holiday music. Added bonus: guests can get a jump start on holiday shopping with special discount pricing, wine gift packs, gift baskets and unique wine accessories.

The Holiday Celebration is also the kickoff for Light Up the Vines, our third annual vineyard illumination. Light Up the Vines continues through Jan. 1, 2023.

Crossing Vineyards and Winery will host Santa and Mrs. Claus on both days of the Holiday Celebration. Customers can share their holiday gift list and grab the perfect photo opp.

The winery will offer hot mulled wine, seasonal cocktails (including a “Tipsy Rudolph”). Crossing Vineyards will also have specialty food and wine pairings,  holiday merchandise discounts and live music from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. both days. Meg Russell will perform on Dec. 10; Skip and Chickie will entertain on Dec. 11.
The winery will stay open late on Saturday from noon to 9 p.m.  so customers can enjoy the twinkling vineyard lights and from noon to 6 p.m. on Sunday.

Light Up the Vines

Come see the wonder of festive illuminations along the Bucks County Wine Trail as part of the third annual Light Up the Vines holiday vineyard lighting.

Rose Bank Winery will kick off its vineyard illumination a week early: On Saturday and Sunday Dec. 3 and Dec. 4. On Dec. 3, Rose Bank will feature live music, hors d’oeuvres, a free glass of wine and a cash bar from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. Artists who painted Rose Bank Winery scenes will display their works of art inside the winery as part of a one-night-only gallery. Guests can meet the artists and can purchase their paintings.

In conjunction with the Bucks County Wine Trail’s Holiday Celebration (set for Saturday and Sunday Dec. 10-11), Light Up the Vines will kick off at the conclusion of the Holiday Celebration on Dec. 10 and continue each evening through Jan. 1, 2023. *Six of the seven member wineries of the Bucks County Wine Trail will illuminate their vineyards each evening at dusk. (*Vino By Zzino is participating in the Holiday Celebration, but does not have a vineyard to illuminate).

Travelers near and far can ring in the holiday season with festive lights in the vineyards, along with mulled wines, holiday music and more during the kickoff lighting on Dec. 10. (Festivities vary by winery).

Light Up the Vines is a free event. All are welcome to attend. Fees will apply for food and wine purchases.

Space is limited at each winery. Fire pits and seating are available on a first come, first served basis. Guests may wish to bring blankets and/or their own chairs. Visits by groups of six or more require a reservation. See below for a list of Bucks County Wine Trail wineries.
