Maryland wine crappy service
Oct 19, 2014 by: AHNPU from
I currently live in Maryland and have visited boordy wines multiple times. I have brought many many family members here and let me just start by saying the service is awful. You arrive at 3 and the person at the gate is rude doesn't even welcome you to the winery and the first thing he says is "you have to be off the grounds at so and so time". Next you are to pick which tasting you want the $5 or $15 landmark tasting. You are given wristbands and a wine glass which you get to take home. Next you walk up to the crowded area where people are hovered trying to taste wines. The people pouring are so miserable. They don't smile and make your experience enjoyable. When you finally get a spot in with your group. They just start poring wine and don't seem to enthused to be there. There are no descriptions of the wines being tasted. Let me also add you are given the smallest sip of wine. As someone who has visited some of the most beautiful winery's around the world, boordy is by far the most sub-par. Majority of the wines they taste are sweet probably because the dry wines are so bad they have to mask the taste with sugar. Overall I tried to give this place the benefit of the doubt however they greatly disappointed my expectations with mediocre customer service. Boordy wines- hire some more enthusiastic people who are pouring your wines because I gaurentee you they are hurting your business.

Attended Boordy's Thursday fun day. 5-8 pm. Live music, crowds on blankets and at picnic tables. All ages. Many farm stands to purchase fresh produce, candles, soaps, coffee...wine, of course. A great picnic atmosphere and lots of fun. Free but very crowded. Parking lot on site. Saturdays I believe cost is $20, bigger band, no vendors.

The countryside is spectacular and the vineyard was converted from an old farm. We took their $5/per person tour and learned a lot about the vineyard itself as well as the processing involved to develop several varieties of wine. The tour finished with wine tasting of several selections and we also received a free wine glass. The setting is lovely with tables under trees and they offer music and other events on weekend evenings. A lovely activity for the area!
Nice Wines Just a 30 min drive off I-95

On a drive back from Boston, we stopped at the visitor center of I-95 and found information on Boordy Vineyards. It was well worth the drive off the highway at 4pm on a Monday to avoid the Baltimore rush hour! You do pay for your wine tastings, but they offer a $5 one and $15 one, so you can taste what you like. My husband and I got one of each so we could share and taste everything. We really liked the Rockfish wine and the Estate reds. If I'm in the area I would go back again to see what's new.
Fun, well-organized summer event

Went here for a Sat. summer concert, wine and picnic. Tickets were reasonably priced and you can bring your own food and buy wine at the vineyards. They have this quite well-organized...parking, finding a spot to lay out your blanket and/or chairs is easy if you come when they open the doors. The line goes quickly and they don't seem to oversell tickets so although it's well-attended it didn't seem overcrowded. If you want to see the band as well as hear it, come early for a good spot. You can buy taste and buy wine during the event and they have a food and ice cream vendor. Fun activity with friends for a summer evening.
