Sand Castle Winery

Erwinna, PA

Sand Castle Winery, nestled on the banks of the Delaware River in Bucks County is the purveyor of fine wines of a long and noble heritage. Its founders, the brothers Joseph and Paul Maxian, were born and raised in Bratislava, Czechoslovakia, a region renowned for viticulture even before Celtic tribes roamed its hillsides or the Romans began to rule the world. The Maxians claimed their birthright, a centuries old wine making art – and are proud to introduce in America superior quality, classic wines descended from the finest European wine making traditions.

Today, Sand Castle wines are made in much the same way as that of their predecessors in the Old World. The vinifera grapes and the noble vines of Europe are all grown directly on the estate and cared for just as they were thousands of years ago. Once pressed, the wine is aged and bottled on premises. The result? While this painstaking attention to quality limits the winery’s production, the wines are unlike any others you have tasted.

The winery also provides two unique locations to host your next wedding, party, or special event.  For more information, prices, and packages, please email event director, Dean Arcuri at [email protected].  And be sure to check out our website for the most up to date info on our fun events, live music, lunches, dinners, and performances we have planned for our guests.
