When you drive up to the Wycombe Vineyards in Pennsylvania, you feel like you are going to someone’s house, not a sprawling, 65-acre vineyard with an expansive tasting area and outside patio. And, once you open the door to the wine shoppe, you really don’t feel like you are anywhere near Bucks County, Pennsylvania.
If I ever get the opportunity to travel to private vineyards in Italy, the Wycombe Vineyards is what I imagine it would be like.
It was just starting to get dark when we arrived and as we opened the door, we were immediately greeted with warm air and a friendly smile from one of the owners.
With a dimly lit atmosphere, the winery would make a great place for a very small private party or wedding. (It’s rentable for up to 45 people, according to their website)
Although they have whites, the wines available for tasting were mostly dry reds, which I really enjoyed, but my friend not so much.
My favorite was their chambourcin – a full bodied, dry red with hints of chocolate and raspberry and aged in French oak. You could taste the oak flavor, which I like, but it wasn’t overpowering, like some can be.
The winery is open Wednesday to Friday 12 p.m. to 5 p.m., Saturday 12 p.m. to 6 p.m. and Sunday 12 p.m. to 5 p.m.
