Wine and Yoga
Aug 11, 2013 by: Dayripgal from Ellicott City, Maryland, United States
Tried out recent event at Elk Run: Yoga and Wine. If you like yoga and you like wine -- try Yoga and Wine in the Vineyard, at Elk Run Vineyards and Winery. It combined an hour-long session of yoga followed by a wine-tasting. Yoga House owner Jennifer Topper has held two sessions so far, one at Serpent Ridge Winery and the one at Elk Run, with an additional one planned for September. The Elk Run event started at 7 p.m. with over an hour of outdoor yoga. It was overcast but not raining, but fortunately there was a tent so a little rain wouldn't have made much of a difference. Atlhough it's a cool idea for "girls night out," there were supportive boyfriends and husbands also participating -- so also an idea for date night. Following the yoga, we went in for wine tasting. We got to select 8 wines to taste from their list of 16. Only one - the sparkling wine - was unavailable for tasting. It was your typical wine tasting with plenty of good information on the wines and vineyards. The sommeliers were very nice, informative, and helpful, and made us feel comfortable. It's worth noting that Elk Run only uses its own grapes. Read more about wine and yoga at Elk Run at http://www.midatlanticdaytrips.blogspot.com/2013/08/yoga-and-wine-in-vineyard.html.
The wine is good, the people are wonderful

I love going to Elk Run. The wine is very good and reasonably priced. The music on Friday nights (Wine Down Friday) is sometimes good sometimes soso, but it's nice to have some music to accompany conversation. Sometimes it's hard to hear and you might want to situate yourself back aways from the stage.
Good Wine, but...

Recently visited Elk Run on a Sunday while out motorcycle riding. They have some very good wines to enjoy, my only issue is the overall appearance of the tasting room and grounds. They are very cluttered and could use some updating and cleanup. As I said earlier, the wines are very good, but it lacks curb appeal and that's part of the winery experience...enjoying your surroundings.

We had a wine day and travelled to four wineries in the Frederick/Sykesville area and Elk Run was one of them. We had a wine tasting a bought a bottle to bring home. I was so glad that we stopped here.
Small winery but good wines

Recently attended a tasting party. The assortment and quality of wines was good to very good. We were unaware of Elk Run prior to this but will now look for more of their products. Unfortunately , would have to agree with the comment "DISINTERESTED TEENAGE STAFF." She must be a family member because the owner was present... He was friendly and informative.
