The Bucks County Wine Trail is offering a tasty challenge for wine enthusiasts both near and far: Purchase a Passport to Bucks card and enjoy a complimentary tasting at all eight Bucks County wineries.
On sale now and continuing through April 30, visitors who purchase a Passport to Bucks card will earn punches at each winery visited. Once all eight wineries have been visited and the card has eight punches, it can be entered into a drawing for one of several Bucks County prizes, including: a VIP night at Parx Casino ($200 at Parx Grill and $200 in free slot play); a family four-pack of activity passes to Shady Brook Farm; a family four-pack of tickets to Sesame Place; a gift certificate for four tubing/canoeing passes at Bucks County River Country; and a Bucks County weekend getaway package.
Passport to Bucks began in the fall of 2016 as another way to bring both locals and regional guests into the eight wineries that comprise the Bucks County Wine Trail. During last year’s six-month campaign, the wine trail sold out of its first-ever Passport cards.
With a new winery – Bishop Estate Vineyard and Winery – recently opening, the Bucks County Wine Trail has even higher hopes for its second annual Passport to Bucks self-guided wine-tasting tour.
Guests can visit anytime they wish between Nov. 1, 2017 and April 30, 2018. The vineyards offer picturesque views and changing foliage in the fall; and cherry blossoms and vibrant flowers dot the countryside in the spring months.
