Hand-Crafted, Small Batch Wines
“Wine enters through the mouth, Love, the eyes. I raise the glass to my mouth, I look at you, I sigh.” ― W.B. Yeats
Our goal is to produce delicious wine that is transparent of the vineyard and vintage. From our nine acre estate vineyard to our regional vineyard partners, our wines are thoughtfully produced in small lots here on our farm. We view our rather unpredictable Mid-Atlantic climate as a strength, capable of producing interesting and high-quality wines that vary with each growing season. We aim to understand what we are given with the climate each season and produce the wines accordingly.
Our Winemaking Philosophy
In farming 9.5 acres of estate vines and working closely with our partnering regional vineyards, we place high importance on fruit quality. Our wines are made in small lots with the goal of highlighting the premium fruit made in the vineyard.
Our Vineyard Philosophy
To minimize our impact during the growing season and achieve maximum vine health with minimal spray intervention, we soil and vine-leaf test throughout the season to respond and listen to the vines. We also trap and monitor pest populations to reduce or eliminate pesticide applications.
Additionally, monitoring sap PH of vines and routine scouting in the vineyard for disease pressure allows for better timing of fungicide applications.
Overall, our goal is for our vines and soils to be healthy with a strong immune system necessary to thrive with minimal spray intervention in the hot and humid Maryland Summers.
We practice high density planting in the vineyard and keep fruit yields low (3 tons/acre for reds, 4 tons/acre for whites) in order to enhance color, complexity, and flavor.
