Established in 2007, our vineyards are fortuitously situated on rolling hills just south of Davidsonville, Maryland. When we began our first experiments with 150 vines, the goal was clear: to practice sustainable agriculture and produce exceptional wines. As ninth generation custodians of this historic farmland, and as demanding winemakers, we are committed to using viticultural practices and winemaking techniques that permit full expression of the unique deep sandy loam ‘Dodon Series Soils’ that lend our wines distinctive aromatics and subtle minerality.
Using only grapes grown on our farm, our vineyard and winemaking techniques emphasize individual attention to each cluster and protecting the quality of the fruit. We believe that our deep soils and abundance of Southern Maryland sun are the keys to producing rich, balanced, aromatic wines. In other words, it is the unique qualities of the site that determine the product (“vins de terroir”), not a winemaker with a strong stylistic vision (“vins d’effort”). The result is a combination of old world and new world style that is particular to this area of Southern Maryland.
We invite you to share our vision and develop a relationship with the farm, with our vineyard, and with our wines.
