Chesapeake Wine Trail
From the mountains in the west, to the Atlantic in the east, Maryland is blessed with a little bit of everything, but the one thing that we’ve got that you can’t find anywhere else is the heart of the Chesapeake Bay. A world treasure known for its panoramic vistas, startling varieties of wildlife, incredibly lush farmlands, and the world’s greatest seafood, it’s also home to more than a dozen fantastic wineries on the Chesapeake Wine Trail.
Blue Elk Vineyard
Located in the center of Bohemia Overlook, grapes grow along the hillside beside the shore of the Elk River. Blue Elk's terroir produces grapes unique to the area. A 1930's barn serves as a tasting room.
Bordeleau Vineyards & Winery
Centered on a beautiful brick manor, this water’s-edge winery is simply a slice of heaven. A particular favorite is the brick patio centered on a massive fireplace, perfect for toasting an unforgettable evening.

Crow Vineyard & Winery
At its roots, Crow Vineyard & Winery wants its guests to experience their wines.

It makes a communal feast with a glass of their brilliant Barbera Reserve all the more unforgettable, and is why Al Spoler of “Cellar Notes” has called Crow, “One of the leading lights in Maryland Wine.”
Dove Valley Vineyard & Winery
