A Ten Year Old Boy's Dream
Kids usually follow their parents into the family business. But in the case of Crossing Vineyards and Winery, the parents followed their kid!
When Tom Carroll Jr. was just 10 years old, he looked out the window of the 200-year-old historic home his parents had purchased on 20 acres in Bucks County, Pa. and said “this would make a great vineyard.”
Some 15 years later, after working as an actor in California and expanding his knowledge in viticulture and enology, Tom Jr. returned home.
In 2000 he partnered with his parents, Christine and Tom Carroll Sr., and established Crossing Vineyards and Winery. Crossing’s first vines were planted in April 2002, and after nearly two years of preparation, Tom Jr., became one of Pennsylvania’s youngest vintners at the age of 27.
The Dream Becomes Reality
The business Tom Jr. once dreamed of is now a thriving reality. A dozen different grape varietals are grown on the 20 acre vineyard. Technology and tradition co-exist in the state of the art winery, which has been consistently endorsed for its excellence by consumers and industry professionals alike.
Crossing Vineyards' lovely grounds, located less than a mile from the place where George Washington crossed the Delaware in 1776, offer a unique setting for weddings, rehearsal dinners, concerts, private parties and corporate gatherings.
