My friends and I drove from South Jersey to spend the day at the winery. We have made this a tradition to pick a winery and all get together and go and do a tasting. We made reservations and were there on time. We were brought in the back and waited for someone to help us. The one gentleman was helping a younger couple who looked to be tasting wine for a wedding. Then another gentleman (Gary?) began the tasting, we assumed he was who would be helping us. He knew we were there, we walked by him and he looked at us several times. After he was 3 wines into the tasting he walked over to the other guy and asked who was helping us. They said it must be Chris helping us and that he would be there soon. Chris came back and was a huge help. He was great and I am glad we didnt get stuck with ?Gary?. After a few tastings, the guy who gave us our glasses and I turned in my reservation paperwork to, came back and asked if we paid and what time our reservation was for. We told him yes and that it was at 2. Then he began talking to Chris. They then came over and told us we would have to wait because Chris was supposed to do the 230 tasting. Great more waiting!! So we waited for the other group to catch up and then finished our tasting. The wine was great and so was Chris, but I am disappointed with the organization and how rude the rest of the staff was. I was extremely offended by ?Gary? and how he took one look at a group of people who were in their late 20s and wanted nothing to do with us. His whole speech about how he is educated in wine tasting and how that doesnt make him better than other people who perform the tastings it just makes him different (Yes we were there for that he just didnt want to help us). Maybe he can go back to school for hospitality.
I was excited to experience my first wine tasting. After we arrived, I was impressed by the atmosphere until we got to where the actual wine tasting was conducted. The area was a warehouse area, which had tables with black sheets over them where the wine tasting took place. We got the wine and cupcakes tasting. The gentlemen serving us doesn’t really explain anything, the first thing he says is that cupcakes and wine dont go together, like we came up with this crazy concoction ourselves (why are you offering it then and why did I pay for this???). The gentlemen serving the wine gave a synopsis on a few of the wines but for the most part they were just served to our group without much explanation. Lastly, as we were doing the wine tasting, the area was so busy we were asked to "scrunch together, to make room". The entire experience was not what I was expecting. I would certainly like to try a wine tasting somewhere else and compare the differences.
One of the best tasting experiences Ive had. Good wine, with a knowledgable and friendly staff. Home run. Update: Ive been back several times and every time had a great experience. Im not sure what other people are talking about when they complain about bad service. Some of them I fear are just impossible to please. Things do happen, but youre there tasting wine, at a family owned winery, its not the Four Seasons, calm down and enjoy yourself. Their white wines are flat out good, the Chardonnays are very good. Reds arent great from this part of the world so I tend to stay away from local reds. The prices are what I would expect from this caliber wine. Remember people they are a small operation. Less bottles produced means more expensive per bottle. This isnt Franzia of course its upwards of $20 a bottle which is nothing in terms of wine. There are far worse wines for double, triple even the price of Crossings.
My sister-in-law and I checked out Crossing Vineyards & Winery through a LivingSocial event called, "Yoga, Wine Tasting + Lunch in a Vineyard". We tasted approximately ten different wines paired with an array of cheese and a piece of truffle. Their Sauvignon Blac and Chardonnay were both decent. We were also served a lunch buffet that consisted of two different types of pasta and salads. Overall, Crossing Vineyards & Winery is a very young vineyard (approximately 10 years) and small (15 acres) but they had a cute sitting area to enjoy the view and their staff was knowledgable and friendly.

Ridiculously expensive tasting prices for subpar wine. Do not opt for the premium tasting package as it simply is not worth it. They do not refund your tasting fee if you buy wine from them, they charge exorbitant prices for their bottles, and they promised 16 tastings for the premium package upstairs only to the guy down below try to wrap things up after 10. Also, they were conveniently out of 5 of the more expensive bottles that were listed on the tasting menu. Not worth it!
Top Notch Venue - We can not say enough positive things about how wonderful the staff is. Location is beautiful. We had 120 guests for our wedding this past weekend. Everyone raved, was told countless times this is one of the best weddings we have been to. Love Crossing Vineyards. Kate and Margo are wonderful to work with. Our Wedding Coordinator was Kate - she is the BOMB :) Thank you everyone that made our day so special
I was very disappointing in my tasting experience. This place looks beautiful from outside but wait till you get into the tasting room. It looks like a garage (probably is) some folded tables are set for tasting. Arrogant and pushy staff! and bad cheeses to pair. Wines are subpar at best and way overpriced for their taste. I would recommend driving a few more miles to better wineries and atmosphere with friendlier staff.
Wow! Dropped in on a Tuesday afternoon with my wife. We decided to do the tasting. I was amazed at the complexity and quality of the wines. The wine presenter (alissa) knew her wines and described each one perfectly. We purchased several bottles. They are not cheap, but if you are looking for quality wine grown in a sustainable manner with minimal chemical use, this is the place for you.
I went for the wine and chocolate tasting. Our host, Gary was funny and informative. The atmosphere was amazing and the grounds are beautiful. They even had live music! I will be going back to try some of their other tasting events soon!
I have been to a number of wineries. The staff is lovely, and the wines are surprisingly good. I never expect much from a Pennsylvania winery and I was surprisingly impressed. If you go ask for Michelle, she was wonderful.
This is a wonderful winery to visit for a fun, relaxing and very enjoyable afternoon of wine tasting. The wine is fantastic, the staff are wonderful and all of their events are top notch!

Went for a yoga and wine tasting deal from Groupon. The venue is quaint and offers a pleasant atmosphere. Yoga and tasting was in the event tent and was a very enjoyable time!
Excellent experience. The owner Tom was a gentle soul and the hostess Michelle was so knowledgeable and kind!. You have to try this wonderful and beautiful experience!
