Elk Run Vineyards- a Maryland Winery

Yesterday we decided to visit Elk Run Vineyards in Maryland. This winery is one of the Maryland wineries that will have wines offered at the DrinkLocalWine.com Conference in Virginia this weekend. Elk Run offers a variety of wines from dry to sweet but their portfolio focuses on dry wines of which they have listed 15  dry wines. The winery focuses on quality wines from quality fruit. Their wines have won numerous awards from such competitions as the Maryland Governor’s Cup, World Wine Comp, Pacific Rim Competition, Tasters Guild International and Atlantic Seaboard. We enjoyed tasting their wines and hearing about the techniques they use in the vineyards to grow the best fruit possible. The Riesling 2008 was from their Cold Friday vineyard. This Riesling offered a floral aroma. The taste reminded one of a fruit salad with nuances of peach, apple and pear. There were hints of minerality on the fruity finish. If you will be at the Drink Local Wine conference be sure to try the wines from Maryland.

Cheers, Kathy
