There are more vineyards and wineries (nine) in Bucks County than in any other county in Pennsylvania. And there are a few more gems in Hunterdon County (just over the river) in New Jersey as well. The gentle rolling hills, deep well-drained soils and moderate climate makes this area one of the premier grape-growing regions on the East Coast. Here are just a few in Upper Bucks and Hunterdon Counties.
