The Bucks County Wine Trail is offering wine enthusiasts the opportunity to Purchase a Passport to Bucks card for $30 and enjoy a complimentary wine tasting at all eight participating Bucks County wineries.
Beginning Oct. 1 and continuing through April 30, 2019, 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 a grand prize of two cases of wines from Bucks County Wine Trail member wineries.
Passport to Bucks began in the fall of 2016 as another way to bring both local and regional guests into the eight wineries that comprise the Bucks County Wine Trail. During previous six-month campaigns, the wine trail has nearly sold out of its Passport punch cards.
With an extra month to redeem the cards this time around, the Bucks County Wine Trail has even higher hopes for its third annual Passport to Bucks self-guided wine-tasting tour.
Guests can visit any time from Oct. 1 through April 30, 2019. The vineyards offer picturesque views and changing foliage in the fall; and cherry blossoms and vibrant flowers dot the countryside in the spring months.
