On select Sundays in August wine lovers and foodies can enjoy selections of locally made wines expertly paired with mouthwatering appetizers as part of the Bucks County Wine Trail’s Summer Sip & Savor food and wine pairing events.
The second annual Summer Sip & Savor welcomes guests from near and far to come and enjoy wines (and hard ciders) selected to complement an array of savory and sweet dishes at each of the eight family-owned wineries along the Bucks County Wine Trail. Each member location will offer three to four small bites paired with wine or cider varieties. Guests can choose to visit on Aug. 6, Aug. 13, or both dates. Each date features four locations to allow visitors to have to make, at most, four stops on each of the Summer Sip & Savor dates.
*New for 2023*
Mannoff Market Cidery, the newest member of the Bucks County Wine Trail, will participate in this year’s event, offering samplings of some of the cidery’s varieties such as Pink Lady, Stayman and Goldrush, which are grown at the orchard, harvested and pressed into alcoholic ciders.
Travelers can opt for self-guided stops at all eight locations over two Sundays (Aug. 6 and Aug. 13) or choose to visit four of the wineries on their designated day (Aug. 6 OR Aug. 13). On Aug. 6, Summer Sip & Savor features Buckingham Valley Vineyards, 1521 Durham Road, Buckingham; Crossing Vineyards and Winery, 1853 Wrightstown Road, Newtown; Rose Bank Winery, 258 Durham Road, Newtown; and Rushland Ridge Vineyards, 2665 Rushland Road, Jamison. On Aug. 13, Summer Sip & Savor features Bishop Estate Vineyard and Winery, 2730 Hilltown Pike, Perkasie; Manoff Market Cidery, 3157 Comfort Road, New Hope; Sand Castle Winery, 755 River Road, Erwinna; and Vino by Zzino (which will offer pairings at Bishop Estate Vineyard and Winery at the address listed above).
Advance tickets are required and on sale now. *Quantities are limited.* Combo tickets offer a $10 savings and include food and wine pairings at ALL eight locations. Individual tickets cost $80.
Ticketholders can visit the wineries at their convenience during the event, which runs from noon to 5 p.m. on Sunday, Aug. 6 and Sunday, Aug. 13.
