Wycombe Vineyards 

The 10-acre land and more than 60 acre attached parcel of fertile soils at Wycombe Vineyards have been a family affair since 1925. Located in Buckingham Township's agricultural district, the tract has been rented to farmers since 1958.

In 2000, the Frasers started planting classical European style grapes to make wine and the pair now have about nine acres of classic Vinefera and French Hybrid varietals in various stages of maturity. Locally, the family winery is known for crisp, fresh white wines and deep full body red wines of different dryness levels. 

Wycome Vineyards also makes a prohibition recipe Dandelion wine that's shipped nationally. The couple hopes to expand the vineyard acreage while still providing the family's personal touch.

DID YOU KNOW?

Wycombe Vineyards is one of two "Estate" Vineyards in Bucks County and all of the labels on their wine bottles feature a photo of a family member who at one point in time lived or worked on the property.

Until about 1955, the land was farmed to support the family pork business where smoked ham, bacon and sausage were made daily and delivered to many country stores in Pennsylvania and New Jersey. Since about 1965, the land has been farmed almost exclusively to produce sod.

If the vine rows were laid end to end, it would be a six-mile walk to inspect all the vines.

SEASONAL AND MOST POPULAR WINES

The Everything Nice comes out mid-October and tastes like apple pie in a bottle, but it's made from 100% Chardonnay with a secret sweet spice recipe. Serve warm for a winter holiday treat!
