A Thank You note following a 50th anniversary event
I wanted to take the time to Thank you for an absolutely wonderful event this past Saturday evening in celebrating our parents' 50th Wedding Anniversary! Your remarkable coordination and your flexibility in adjusting the venue layout to ensure we were comfortable due to the extreme heat were a huge part of the success of the evening. The food was excellent, the staff was absolutely wonderful, accommodating & engaging and the ambience, without question, was magnificent.
My parents asked me to be sure to also pass along their thanks and gratitude for all that you and the staff did throughout the evening. They were so impressed not only by the venue but also yourself and the rest of the staff. They really appreciated how everyone was so personable, congratulated them on their milestone and really blended in so well with all the guests.
Matt & I just couldn't stop saying yesterday how we wouldn't hesitate to hold another event there if the need arises. And without a doubt, we will be highly recommending Crossing Vineyards & Winery to everyone we know.
I can't thank you enough and I am sure you will be seeing us again.
Our Sincere Appreciation,
Mary & Matt Schrum
Comments following a wedding at Crossing Vineyards
Dear Beth, Kate, and everyone at Crossing Vineyards
We can't even begin to thank you enough for all the amazing work you did to make our wedding PERFECT! From the first day when we signed the contract up until the last dance, you all treated us with care, support and shared excitement. Beth - you planned and facilitated everything to perfection - thank you! The food was delicious, the venue was breathtaking, and the wine was (as always) incredible.
We love Crossing Vineyards and will definitely be seeing you very soon! Thanks!

A testimonial from the mother of a bride, following a wedding at Crossing Vineyards
Just wanted to say how wonderful everything was Saturday. You and your staff did a tremendous job. The place looked fabulous. I am attaching (i hope) a picture taken of the reception area before the crowd got to it. Absolutely beautiful, as was the Bride! not that I am partial or anything. LOL
We all had a great time. I can't sing the praises of Crossings Vineyard enough! I want to do it all over again! Hey, maybe our son Jon will have his wedding there someday!
I do hope to make it out there to one of the many events planned this season. Please give our gratitude to all involved for making Sara and Patrick's Elegant Wedding Day a great success.
Hope to see you soon,
Comments from one of our Wine Club members
Tuscan Dinner - Wonderful!
Just wanted to send you a quick note to let you know how much my husband George and I, and our friends Colleen & Andy Janiw, enjoyed the Tuscan Wine Dinner at your winery last Friday. This was the first dinner we had attended - but I can assure you we will be back for more! The food was delicious, the wines were wonderful and the atmosphere was warm and friendly. The variety and number of wines we had the opportunity to taste and enjoy were terrific. We particularly enjoyed hearing Tom Jr. speak about the vineyards and the specifics about the harvesting, etc. of the various wines.
We just feel such a sense of warmth whenever we visit the winery - one can tell it's in your hearts & souls. Thanks so much for a terrific night out! We can't wait to attend another one...

From a guest who attended a corporate event
I was at your vineyard for a work event last week. We had a wine tasting followed by cocktail hour and a buffet. The event was one of the most beautiful venues we had for our sales meeting and the ambiance was great. We had a really great time..and I even came back to buy a couple bottles of your wines!
Thanks for making our event memorable.
From a guest who attended a private tasting & tour
Dear Tom ,
I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for your personal tasting tour today. Your passion for wine and your warm, friendly manner was so prominently viewed by us all. As you had stated, I felt like we were in your home tasting wines as well as receiving an education. I look forward to hearing about your trip at my family's next celebration with you on January 28. As we enjoy each bottle, we will think of you and how wonderful you made the day for us. Best wishes for a merry holiday and a healthy new year.

From a newlywed couple
Thank you for everything you did for us leading up to and during our
wedding. The process of planning the wedding couldn't have been more fun and easier, especially with a three month turn around!! Jamie and I are eternally grateful for everything you did. The wedding turned
out to be more beautiful than anything either of us could have imagined!! From the spectacular ceremony site, beautiful fountain and colors at the cocktail hour, to the amazing sunsets and rainbows as the reception started. The reception was decorated so beautifully as well, and the whole wedding was beyond stress free (besides me trying not to cry when I read my vows to Jamie!).
Thank you so much for knowing our exact vision with the center pieces, ceremony, linens, and just everything from start of the process till leaving your venue. Jamie and her bridesmaids were thrilled with the Bridal Suite and felt almost at home when they were getting ready. The weather, although scary most of the day, turned out to be amazing!! We truthfully could have never imagined a more perfect day and their wouldn't be one thing to change (except me having more time to try the wine--because it was wonderful!!). Our guests spent their entire night telling us how our wedding was the most beautiful they have ever been to, and they all had so much fun!!
Thanks again for everything, we can't wait to come up and visit again!!
From one of our "Pairing Wine & Cheese" class attendees
I wanted to take a moment to tell you how enjoyable the wine and cheese tasting class was this past Sunday. My friends surprised me with a trip to the winery for my 30th birthday, and our instructor Julie made the whole experience an afternoon to remember! She was professional yet fun, informative and social.
As an added bonus, the 7 bottles of wine that my friends bought turned into my birthday gift! My kitchen now looks like a wine cellar, with a healthy stock of cheese in the fridge! Thank you for making my special afternoon so much more memorable! I will return soon!

A Thank You note following a wedding at Crossing Vineyards...
We could not be more pleased with the wedding Crossing Vineyards coordinated for us in October. We were looking for a simple, beautiful and pleasant way to celebrate with close family and friends. From the first email inquiry we sent, your coordinator Beth was quick to thoroughly respond to every question, idea, concern and change of plans. She worked with your caterer to create a delicious menu within our budget. Beth recommended Cindy DeSau, a wonderful photographer who took full advantage of the pristine grounds. Beth also worked with our florist, musician, and officiant as well as our families to ensure that everything would flow smoothly. She was attentive to every detail. Your ceremony site is a lovely, quiet spot. Our photos were taken in a backdrop of beautiful autumn colors. Guests enjoyed a cheese and fruit display with mimosas on the patio, followed by a delicious brunch in the cozy vineyard room. We truly enjoyed our wedding from start to finish.
We are so fortunate to have chosen Crossing Vineyard for our special day, especially because we'll be able to enjoy return visits! Many thanks to you and all of the staff involved. We will treasure the memories of our celebration for many years to come thanks to all of our new friends at Crossing Vineyards.
Meg and Rich,
A very special comment following a very special celebration...
I wanted to thank Tom, Chris & the rest of the Crossing Vineyard family for giving my family the most priceless gift ever.
Last season, I asked Tom if he could make my Grandmom feel like a princess for the day (it was her 90th birthday & my grandparents' 64th wedding anniversary. We worked out a deal and he provided us with "the works". Private luncheon, wine tasting, tour, we had an anniversary cake brought out and a cd playing "their song" THIS LOVE OF MINE by Frank Sinatra so they could have their wedding dance. It was absolutely the most perfect day that I could have wished for. It was the icing on our relationship with my Grandparents. Come to find out, my Grandmom never had a wedding cake (they were married during WWII) so the entire day was just spectacular!
My Grandmom died on July 21, 2011. Our last birthday and anniversary was spent with them at Crossing Vineyards. At the time we didn't know it, but looking back - it was Heaven on Earth. Tom, Chris & everyone else there.... thank you doesn't even come close to expressing how we feel about the memories you were able to provide us for the rest of our lives. My Grandmom said on the way home, " this is a day she will remember for the rest of her life!".
Best wishes with doing what you do best there - providing magic to your patrons.

Review following a wedding at the winery
Dear Kate and Beth,
Now that the dust has settled following the excitement of Jill and Michael's wedding, I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for the most beautiful wedding I have ever seen.
Crossing Vineyards is the most beautiful venue any bride could dream of for her wedding. The food and wine was outstanding and I have heard nothing but glowing remarks about the entire day.
Once again, thank you for a day that provided the most beautiful memories for not only Jill and Michael, but also for everyone that attended the wedding.
Comments following a corporate event
Wow! What a night! I couldn’t have asked for a more perfect evening for entertaining our executives and clients. Everything from the sunset over the vineyard to the anecdotal stories made the evening something everyone attending will not soon forget. The wine selection and food pairs were perfect! Crossing Vineyards has set the bar when is come to wine tasting…I just hope this doesn’t ruin wine tasting for me from here on out.
It was a seamless event that made me look good! Your staff was fantastic, very accommodating and a great asset to the evening. Kevin, the guitarist, added the perfect ambiance to the already stellar setting. One of the things that stands out the most is your pride, passion and love for your family and Crossing Vineyards. Your enthusiasm for your wines is contagious and it was our great pleasure to have you join us.
Thank you again for an incredible night, we’ll be sure to be back!

Food & wine pairing notes from customers about our 2008 Riesling
We grilled some salmon this evening, opened a bottle of Tom's 2008 Riesling, and thought, "We have to get in touch with them!!"
The wine is superb, needless to say. Really, really lovely. We grilled the salmon with a simple marinade of dark Chinese soy sauce, olive oil, garlic, and Dijon mustard
Thank You note from the Friends of the Churchville Nature Center
On behalf of the Friends of the Churchville Nature Center Board and all who attended our annual meeting and fundraiser at Crossing Vineyards, I would like to thank you and your staff for an absolutely terrific event.
All in attendance agreed and we all enjoyed a lovely evening. The food and wine were wonderful and the service was excellent. The live auction that you conducted was a true highlight and was instrumental in helping us net over $7,000.00. Your charm, sense of humor, and grand hospitality made our event more successful than we anticipated.
All in all, a wonderful evening.

Feedback from Wine 101 Students
To: Crossing's Vineyard & Eric Cavatore ("sparkling Eric")
We wanted to thank you for a fantastic 6 week experience in your Wine 101 course. Between the beautiful property, the amazing wine and the fun classes, you have a good thing going on and should be very proud.
The vast amount of material that Eric presented was impressive, and held our attention. And though we came in with some knowledge, we definitely learned a lot and it certainly will help us become better educators at our bar school.
We look forward to coming to future events at the winery and will definitely recommend you to our graduates looking for more wine knowledge to boost their resumes.
May your grapes be healthy this season!

Thank you note from one of our out-of-state visitors
Thanks for for playing a part in one of life's most perfect days!
Our perfect day started with a successful business meeting in Philly followed by a beautiful drive, lovely weather, lunch in a quaint little village and wine at Crossing Vineyards. A day just doesn't get much better or so we thought until a hardly noticed road sign drew us to your winery and you became part of our perfect day.
Your stories, life experiences and passion shared with complete strangers over a wonderful bottle of Merlot gave us a memory we'll never forget. I'm quite certain the tale will be retold each time we share wine with others.
Your wine is superb, your vineyard divine and you are charmed! Continue to live and share your gusto with others!
Thanks again for playing a part in our "perfect day".

Customers' food & wine pairing notes about our 2009 Le Nouveau
Hi, We opened a bottle of your Le Nouveau this evening and were most impressed! Truly one of the best nouveaus we've ever tasted.
We had it with roast pork and vegetables--the flavors of garlic, mustard, thyme, fennel, potato, carrot and onion, with the vegetables highly carmelized. The wine held its own magnificently (if one is allowed to use that word for something as fresh as a nouveau), and it was a real pleasure!
Comments following a wedding at Crossing Vineyards
It is hard to believe our wedding in September has come and gone so quickly; we were so lucky to have found the most perfect place to host such a memorable event for us! Everything Crossing Vineyards did was absolutely superb and is a time in our life we will never forget. Thank you, Crossing Vineyards, for all of your hard work stemming from the amazing line of communication, the most beautiful ambiance we have ever seen, fantastic food, the perfect bridal suite and such an amazing and helpful event coordinator!
It was absolutely fantastic to see all of our guests faces as they began the evening in Jonathan's Garden, it was perfect... a string duet playing in the background as people walked through the luscious garden, enjoying wonderfully passed hors d'oeuvres and gazing at the Vineyard; Wow!
Our wedding at Crossing Vineyards has made an impression on our hearts and we thank you all for sharing such a beautiful place with us, our family and our friends! September 5th was a day to be remembered and will be remembered by all as the most beautiful wedding they have attended... Thank you for being so gracious and making us feel as though our wedding was the most unforgettable day in the world; you are the best!

Email concerning a rehearsal dinner held at the winery
Dear Carroll Family and Kate,
Even though it has been a few weeks since our rehearsal dinner, we are still thinking and talking about it. Simply put, it was perfect! The venue is beautiful and intimate, just what we were looking for. All our guests and family raved about the food and atmosphere and the wine drinkers in our group were impressed with the quality of the wine. We could not have asked for a more perfect way to celebrate with family and friends. I am so very happy that I found Crossing Vineyards and Winery. Kate was warm, friendly and immediately responsive to all my inquiries. I promise we will be returning for other events and we will tell everyone we know to do the same. Someday soon we will have another event there too.
Thank you so much!

A Thank-You note from a bride about her recent wedding at Crossing Vineyards
I wanted to thank you and your staff and also write a few comments for your web site for other brides to see. I have done nothing but rave about you and Crossing Vineyards since we returned from our honeymoon in Hawaii. The scenery was beautiful and you were such a pleasure to work with. Whatever I needed you just came through for me and you were so patient with all of my crazy emails! All of our guests said the winery gardens and grounds were so breathtaking that they cannot stop talking about it. They also all loved the wine! Many of them even bought some to take home! We were definitely happy with everything and I promise we will be back for more wine! We will visit the vineyard as soon as this weather warms up again!
Thanks again for all your help, our family thought the vineyard was beautiful! See you in the future!

Comments from the mother of the groom concerning their rehearsal dinner.
Mark and Alyssa's wedding weekend was perfect, starting with the
wonderful rehearsal dinner at Crossing Vineyards. You and your
staff did a great job; it was the perfect place for us to host the
dinner. Everyone enjoyed themselves; the hors d'oeuvres, wine and food
were all delicious. The Vineyard looked beautiful and the weather
held for the cocktail hour on the patio. I appreciate the time you
took meeting with me before the event, making certain all was covered.
I would recommend Crossing Vineyards and Winery to family and friends without hesitation. The wedding weekend was unbelievable from start to finish.
Everyone got a chance to see why we love living in Bucks County.
Thank you again for everything. My best to you.

Message from one of our Excitations Package customers.
Just wanted to let you know what a lovely time we had at the vineyard last Friday. Our daughter had given us this experience through Excitations and it certainly was memorable. The grounds were gorgeous; the lunch delicious; the wines superb! It was a truly delightful way to celebrate our 38th wedding anniversary. Special thanks to your staff for sharing their knowledge and love of wine with us. We savored every second of the day

Email from one of our customers who enjoys our Chardonnay.
I am from California. After many years of tasting different varieties of California Chardonnay and usually finding them too acidic and not worthy of the status they seemed to achieve, I was so happy to find yours. I find it to be the best Chardonnay I have ever tasted. Thank you for making a fantastic product
Email from one of our Cheese & Wine Pairing class participants.
Thank you again for hosting such a great class, I learned a lot and had a great time in the process!
I think you have a great thing going with Crossing Vineyards- Your always hosting the PERFECT event. I have been able to spend some quality time with my mother at Crossing Vineyards birthday party in the fall; I had some great laughs with my best girlfriends at the Wine for Dummies class and most recently Thursday date night with my boyfriend at the Cheese and Wine pairing. I tell everyone I work with to go, and often find myself printing your "event sheet" and passing it out to co-workers;
Quick Story: As you can see I really "get" what you are doing with Crossing Vineyards- I relentlessly ask my "beer drinking" boyfriend to attend a class/event with me, I printed the event sheet and asked him to choose one and he chose the Wine & Cheese Pairing. As we pulled up, he asked 100 questions: Will this be all night? Boring? Stuffy? Snobby? And as we got in the car to go home he asked 1 question: When is the next event? He then continued to make 100 comments: The people are great & extremely passionate; I am impressed; its beautiful there; My mom, bother, sister & brother-in-law would all love this place; I learned a ton; that was a great night; I LIKE WINE (he even bought a couple bottles! BIG step!)
I love the beauty of the vineyard- The Crossing Vineyard's family make wine fun and simple! For that I thank you. I look forward to many more fun times at your winery.
Email from one of our Food & Wine Pairing class participants.
I wanted to tell you what a wonderful time my husband and I had at your food and wine paring event. You were very informative and funny. Everything was great, the wine, food, information, and entertainment (you). We really enjoyed our night out. We definitely will come again. We are trying to get friends together for the next event, and told our families about what a nice evening it was. They will be coming soon too.
I hope your new grandson is doing great! Enjoy him, as you know, they grow up so quickly!!!!
Thanks again for such an enjoyable evening.
Message from one of our customers who found a perfect food & wine match.
We opened a bottle of your '06 Merlot last night. A triumph, Tom!
And the food pairing was superb--roast pork in a mustard-thyme coating; oven-roasted fennel, onions, and carrots; truffade; and brussels sprouts with toasted pecans. Interestingly, the one particular food that really activated the flavors of the wine was the onions, which were deeply carmelized and sweet from the roasting.
Our friends really enjoyed the wine as well.
E-mail from one of our "Wine Tasting for Dummies" attendees.
What a surprise to attend the "wine tasting for dummies" and find such a first class winery in our back yard. Obviously, you are proud of what you have built with your Wife and Son over the past ten years as you should be and your work shows it.
Tom, you were thoroughly entertaining as an instructor and made the learning of wine tasting enjoyable for my wife and I. I am sure your wines will go far in the competitive market of wine producing.
I want to thank you for taking the time to teach us and show us around the facility. I look forward to joining the wine club and purchasing again from the Crossing Vineyards.
Unfortunately, my wife and I have commitments for Tuesday night and will not be able to attend the wine and cheese event. Look for us at one of your next affaires in the near future.

Letter following the "Fork and the Cork" dinner-auction benefiting Misericordia University's Women with Children program.
Dear Chris and Tom,
How can we ever thank you enough for making the "Fork and the Cork" Wine Tasters' Dinner such a success?
Tom, your exuberance, ingenuity and flat-out salesmanship generated $30,000 for the Women with Children Program, from the auction. These funds will be partially matched by the B and B Trust of Pennington, New Jersey, bringing the total amount contributed to $45,000. What a wonderful way to support this innovative program for single mothers.
A program like Women with Children carries on the tradition of our Sisters of Mercy heritage by helping competent women to help themselves. Perhaps the best aspect of the entire program is that their children are raised on campus with 1,500 "big brothers and sisters." These children know that they can, and most likely they will, go on to college.
Your advocacy for Women with Children is appreciated by all at Misericordia. Thank you again for making the auction such a success, and in so doing, helping these women and their children.
Tina and I look forward to seeing you again soon on campus. We will place your name on our mailing list and keep you posted on activities here.
Michael A. MacDowell
Letter from one of our wine-connoisseur customers.
Dear Christine and Tom,
It was a pleasure meeting you both. Your wines are extraordinary and are very much in a European style. I particularly liked the Riesling and the Chardonnay. I almost never drink Chardonnay, particularly from the US, because it is too "oaked" up.
I conducted a little experiment when I got home. I opened a bottle of Auxey-Duresse which is a small Appellation near Meursault in Burgundy. The wine was extremely similar to your Chardonnay, just as you claimed, and my bottle was very expensive at that!
I was not able to try your Late Harvest Vidal Blanc but I look forward to tasting it in the near future.
I hope to enjoy more of your wine which is a real treat.
Very truly yours,
Robert E. Welsh, Jr.
Letter following a Merrill Lynch corporate event.
We wanted to take a moment to thank you for your hospitality.
Last night was our first visit to your winery. Our event was important to our business and we chose Crossing Vineyards and Winery based on some very strong recommendations from our friends.
Your pride, passion and enthusiasm for what your family has accomplished in such a short time was thrilling to witness. The setting is beautiful. The wines are excellent. Your staff worked hard to make everyone very comfortable. All of the attention to detail showed and a memorable evening was enjoyed by all.
Of course the most important ingredient in the success of our evening was you. Your stories relating to your love of your business are heartfelt. Your hands-on explanation of the wine making process was appreciated by everyone who took the tour. Your impromtu wine class and tasting at the end of the evening will be remembered by those of us who had the pleasure of staying late.
Success in business is largely determined by relationships and how you treat people. We can see this is why your business has been so successful.
Again, thank you.

Our son's wedding rehearsal dinner was superb. The beautiful grounds (perfectly maintained), the tented patio (that worked for us even in the rain), an outstanding Event Coordinator and a fabulous caterer, all made for a first class event for our guests.
We could not be happier! Perfection!
Thank you so much,
Letter from dinner guests following our Harvest Winemaker's Dinner.
Dear Christine and Tom,
It was a year ago that we discovered the pleasures of Crossing Vineyards at the Harvest Winemaker's Dinner. A year that brought numerous, joyous, wonderful memories of our visit to the vineyards.
I want you to know of how I treasure these memories: they will remain with me through all of my days, as will the true pleasure of getting to know you both and the various members of your staff. You all contributed greatly to making this the most remarkable year for my life.
So it is with profound gratitude that I wish to say "Thank You" and to wish you a continuing future of creating grand memories for your guests.
With much appreciation ,

First, I just wanted to thank you for your extreme hospitality. I was there on Saturday for the private dinner/tasting/tour with Vincent Varughese, where he proposed!!! The wine presenter spent quite a bit of time in her explanations, and answering of my questions, and we greatly appreciated her warm smile and demeanor! Also, the tasting room staff who greeted us upon arrival were both extremely kind, sociable, and professional. Your wines and your service are impeccable!! Please let your staff know they are appreciated and doing an excellent job!!!!
We are interested in your wine club--can you give me information?

Paul and I enjoyed the past two Friday's "summer under the stars concert series." Wow, impressive jazz quintets at Crossing Vineyards! Being only 2 miles from home, it's amazing to hear the best in jazz right in our own back yard! No hassle with having to go into New York or Philadelphia when you can hear Larry McKenna and Eric Mintel live from Washington Crossing
Thanks for a great musical and dining experience…….we can't wait to sign up for next year!

Dear Crossing vineyards & Winery,
Wanted to take a moment to thank the entire staff for such a wonderful meeting from a logistics standpoint. The room had wonderful views of the vineyards and was very conducive for learning from a meeting perspective. In addition, the wonderful pairing of wines with food was perfect! Each choice supplemented the strengths of each wine and the staff were very informative regarding each wine as well as the food that was being served! I would recommend this event to any business that is looking for something truly unique in terms of a business setting coupled with windows that provide breathtaking views of the vineyards
A Sincere Thank You!

I wanted to let you know what a great time my mom, sister, and I had
at the Wine Tasting for Mom's event that was held at the vineyard for Mother's Day. Every pairing was PERFECT and your enthusiasm for your wine was
contagious! My sister and I drove up from Maryland to attend this event
hoping that it would be everything that you said it would be... and
it exceeded our expectations. Your staff were professional and happy
and we shared a table with such nice people... we ended up exchanging our
emails at the end of the event! I haven't seen my mother (whom had 12
children) that relaxed and happy in a very long time.
Thank you so much for a very memorable Mother's Day.

Your wonderful Tasting Room Manager hosted a very unique wine tasting for me and my family. She did such a wonderful job representing your wines and allowing us to tour the serene grounds. I am so thankful for the priviledge!
We enjoyed being together as a family and especially enjoyed the surroundings while tasting and learning about you, the vineyard and the wine making process.
Your place is breathtaking!
On behalf of our family, we wish you the very best success and we all are very thankful for our time at Crossing Vineyards.
P.S.: I have been bragging about your Chardonnay!

Dear Mr. Carroll,
Honestly I don't know where to begin... I guess I should start by thanking you for your patience with all my e-mails and never ending questions. Thank you for your expert advise, your precise handling of the music for the ceremony and your perfection to every detail of our wedding day.
Everything was wonderful. All of our guests had a wonderful time and loved the vineyards. They can't stop talking about it. They are all raving about the picture-perfect location, the wonderful wine and the most delicious food. I have never been to a wedding where everyone cleaned their plates the way our guests did.
The staff was incredible, they were so helpful and nice. I really couldn't have asked for anything more.
Thank you so much for your hard work in making our wedding day perfect! We are looking forward to many more celebrations at the vineyards

I will be in touch because I would love to work with you again in the future.
Thank you again.

Our son, Mark, and Stephanie Power, married Saturday at your beautiful winery; I should say breathtaking!
Your staff is outstanding, very attentive and the event was extremely well done. The wedding guests were impressed with the celebration and a most happy time was enjoyed by all. And, of course, the dinner was prepared to perfection.

A thank you letter regarding a rehearsal dinner at Crossing Vineyards
On behalf of the O'Connor family and the guests that attended my son's wedding rehearsal dinner, I'd like to thank you and your staff for an outstanding event. Words cannot properly describe the outstanding service or the expertly prepared food. Your winery and its aesthetic charm speaks for itself.
Your staff was attentive to all guests and served with cheerfulness. The caterers outdid themselves. The food was prepared in a manner that rivaled any great restaurant that I've ever been in, and I have dined at many across the country. Your event coordinator was outstanding to work with and made sure our event was top notch.
Tom, this was truly an outstanding event. Congratulations on putting together a first class venue in Bucks County!

From one of our guests who attended our Harvest Winemaker's Dinner
First I want to tell you what an exceptional evening the Harvest Winemaker's dinner was. It was no surprise that the night was not just a "dinner," but rather an "experience,"
one that I have come to expect from you, your family and your business. It's just the way you do things, as a standard! It was delightful, unique and never was there a dull moment. It was also
classy and tasteful, as usual. I also know that everyone that I came in contact with had a wonderful time. So thank

Dear Tom and Family,
My family and I visited the Winery on Friday night for a private wine tasting and tour. Your family donated this wine tasting for a Silent Auction Fund Raiser for BEELONG Adult Day Services. We were finally able to get the family together and come to the Crossing Vineyards Winery. It was WELL worth the wait!!! We had a fabulous time. The wines were delicious and the presentation could not have been better. We not only were able to enjoy these wines, but we were taught a lot about the process of wine making, and what we should be looking for in our choice of wine. There was a great selection from Whites, Reds, Sweet and Dry. Tom Carroll was a wonderful host and made sure that we were completely cared for during our tasting. I would recommend Crossing Vineyards to anyone who is looking for a nice evening with friends to enjoy some wine and conversation. Thanks again to the Carroll family for their hospitality, and an all around amazing experience.

Thank you so much for an incredible experience!! Scott's party was everything I had hoped for and more. He loved it! The food was wonderful and the staff was very friendly and helpful. My guests were blown away by the evening. So many people commented to me about how different the evening was, how beautiful Crossing Vineyards is and how delicious the food was. They must have loved the wine too, because I saw them buying by the case. Last night, Scott and I were trying to think of another occasion/excuse to do it again! Thanks so much for all your help. You did a terrific job- everything was even better than promised. I hope to work with you again soon.
We at New Hope Academy on the Parent
Advisor Counsel want to thank you for making our Wine Social & Silent Auction such a great success!. We couldn't have done it without you, your generosity, and your wonderful staff. Your staff was extremely helpful before, during, and after our event. You, Tom, have such a knack for handling the "live auction"! We raised more money that night than we ever have for the Scholarship Foundation at New Hope Academy. Everyone seemed to have such a great time. We enjoyed your beautiful location, the wine and hors d'oeuvres. It all made a very special night for our guests. We would also like to thank you for donating the wonderful Wine Dinner that was auctioned off. That will be another unforgettable event! Having the Wine Dinner donation and the donation on the sale of wine really increased our profits. We thank you, and all who helped make it a perfect night.

Regarding an HSBC Corporate Event at Crossing Vineyards
I wanted to take a moment to tell you how much we all enjoyed the meeting at Crossing Vineyards last week. Clearly you have a great deal to be proud of. Your staff was responsive, friendly and professional. I would not hesitate to schedule a meeting with you again and have recommended Crossing Vineyards to my business partner-Mike Eden. Most of all, thank you for your wonderful humor and entertainment during the wine tasting. We certainly didn't expect you to dedicate your time to really making the event as wonderful as it was, so again, thank you! The location was a hit and I must say I have been enjoying my case of wine! I will be ordering more!

I wanted to write to provide feedback on Crossing Vineyards, your wine, classes and events. I have been to the vineyard several times with my wife and friends. I must say that we feel extremely fortunate to have an establishment like Crossing Vineyards in our back yard! We have been delighted with all of your wines, have enjoyed informative classes at your Wine Institute and had great fun at your special events. We have enjoyed Crossing Vineyards so much, we booked your facility for a private dinner with our friends and family. We had a wonderful evening of food, wine and great atmosphere. Your staff made our party very special and continues to welcome us like family! We have mentioned you to countless friends and we will be sure to return often!
As you know, I used your fabulous facilities about a year ago to give a "shower" for my daughter-in-law to be. Everything was wonderful and I look forward to my next "occasion" at the Vineyards. However, I really wanted to tell you that I stopped in today to show your facility to a friend and I could not believe how everything has grown and matured. It looks like California or Italy and to think it's in my backyard! What a wonderful treat and a complement to all your hard work! Congrats!

Dear Carroll Family,
After visiting Crossing Vineyards recently for one of your fantastic concerts, I felt compelled to tell you how excited my wife and I are that we found such a beautiful vineyard and so close to home. I have been in the wine industry for many years and have visited many vineyards and Crossing Vineyards is one of the best in the country not just PA. We live in Cherry Hill, NJ and were pleasantly surprised when the trip to your vineyard took only 40 minutes and was very easy to find. The staff at your vineyard is extremely knowledgeable and everyone was very helpful and friendly. My wife and I felt like we were guests in your home and plan on coming back on a regular basis. Because of Crossing Vineyards, I have become a real believer in just how good wine can be from PA when made with the care and attention to detail that is obvious when tasting your wine. Thank you and we hope to see you soon.
Sincerely, Lou and Diana Bellardine
Gerry and I just want to tell you that we had a PERFECT wedding reception at Crossing Vineyards and Winery! You were so accommodating and we truly felt that you put your heart and energy into the evening! Your staff was superb! Everyone in my and Gerry’s family loved the event, food, music, and wine! We had family and friends from Princeton, Massachusetts, and California as well as Pennsylvania that evening. I was very pleased with all of the traditional wedding reception festivities as well! Additionally, we felt that everyone had a unique and memorable experience! Everyone that I have spoken to said how great the evening was. Thank you very much for making sure that we got the top layer of our wedding cake, presents, and left over wine. It was great meeting you and we look forward to future concerts under the tent and enjoying Crossing Vineyards wine. Hope to run into you at some point in time.
Sincerely, Gerry & Nancy Thomas
We first heard about Crossing Vineyards & Winery just after the opening through an article in the Advance of Bucks County. Shortly after the article appeared we happened to see Sen. Conti's Legislative Report on cable that centered on the Vineyard. Within a week we made our first visit and tasted your wine for the first time. It reminded us so much of what we experienced a few years ago when we made a trip to Sonoma County. The wine along with the visual beauty of your property told us that we had found what we experienced in California right here in Bucks County and only 15 minutes from our Newtown Borough home. In the last 2 1/2 years we have taken the Entire Wine 101 Course, a Food & Wine Pairing class, the Reidel Tasting class, 3 Winemakers Dinners, 2 Valentines Day dinners, special events, and many Summer Concerts. Your Tasting Room and Events Staffs are always most welcoming and informative. But the most exciting aspect for us is having the chance to expose our family and friends to the Carroll Family's absolute passion for viticulture and winemaking and the magical place that is Crossing Vineyards & Winery. We look forward to many more years of enjoying your wines and hospitality.
Sincerely, Barb & Dick Rabberman, Newtown Borough
Just a few words to say Thank You for ensuring that Jurgen's party was a success. He really was so pleased with everything and our guests continue to tell us how wonderful it was and especially how gracious the staff was. You are so easy to work with and it really was the easiest party I've ever arranged. Thank you for everything!
Dear Tom and Dave,
Thank you so much for a wonderful evening last Friday with Dick and Barb Rabberman. We had a fabulous time tasting the wine, eating the delicious foods and hearing all about the winery. Tom, remember, you need to write a book with all your stories. Had a great time! See you soon.
Sincerely, Deb and Dennis Matika
Thank you so much for a great wine tasting. It was refreshing to have someone personable and wine knowledgeable…a rarity in the world of fine wine. I look forward to picking grapes in the fall…and being a part of a great vintage year! Thank you so much.
Thank you so much for helping us host the Pennington Montessori School Spring Auction at Crossing Vineyards. We received so many compliments about the evening; I don’t know where to begin. You and your staff were exceptional. Please extend my gratitude to them on a job well done and truly appreciated. Everyone absolutely loved the vineyard, the wine and the food. Tom’s magical auctioneer abilities really gave the crowd incentive to bid to their limits. The evening festivities helped raise over $28,000 with a net profit of nearly $22,000. The school plans to use this money to complete the Great Room and outdoor garden. Thank you again for all your help and generosity throughout the planning of our event.
It was a pleasure meeting with you this past Friday. You are obviously very proud of what you have created as you should be. Crossing Vineyards’ wines are certainly changing judgments on Pennsylvania wines. I am sure your wines will go over very well at our event. All in all, the vineyard and winery operation is very impressive and I am sure the vineyard will continue to grow. I want to thank you for taking the time to show me around the facility, as I know you have a very busy schedule. I look forward to the possibility of doing business with Crossing Vineyards again in the future.

Junior Achievement of New Jersey’s Annual Hall of Fame Gala was a true success, due in large part to this year’s silent auction, which was only made possible by your generosity. It was both a pleasure and an honor to have your item displayed at our 2006 Hall of Fame Gala Silent Auction. Your contribution of wine for the enthusiast helped us to raise funds to sustain our programs for the youth of New Jersey. Thank you so much for your support.

My husband and I recently attended a Wine Tasting for Dummies class and had the best time ever. It was a Christmas present from our Son and Daughter-in-Law. Anyway, the reason for this email is to thank you for teaching us so much and removing the snobbery usually associated with wine tasting. We have come to really enjoy tasting wines now with all of our meals. You will laugh and be happy to hear that we now know what “good wine” is supposed to taste like. I personally enjoy your Blush wine. I recently threw out three bottles of wine because they tasted substandard when compared to the wines we tasted and purchased at Crossing Vineyards. Our new motto is: If you don’t like the taste, don’t drink it! In closing, Bill and I want to thank you for all that we learned and how much we enjoyed ourselves. We certainly will be visiting the winery again and have already told several of our friends to visit and experience the fun and good wine at Crossing Vineyards. Please add our name to any mailing list that you may have now or produce in the future.
Best regards and much prosperity,

I recently had the privilege of treating my group of eight to a wine tasting at your vineyard. Family friends of mine from Connecticut deeply enjoyed their visit and we’re already planning our next excuse to celebrate in style at Crossing Vineyards….Your staff was incredibly hospitable and they welcomed us into the tasting room with such warmness. We left feeling wonderfully relaxed and spoiled with a mixed case of our favorites, including your Chardonnay and Cabernet-Merlot. Of all the vineyards in Bucks County and adjacent areas, Crossing Vineyards is in a league of its own. Thank you for your excellent service…
