These handcrafted wines are the finest representations of vintage year
These handcrafted wines are the finest representations of vintage year, varietal character, the geography of our region, and the soul of our winemaker. Made in limited quantities, the Landmark wines are sourced from 100% Maryland grown grapes, principally from Boordy's estate vineyards in the Long Green Valley of Baltimore County and South Mountain Vineyard in Frederick County.
Every decision in the creative process is focused upon creating wines that are expressive of place
Non-irrigated farming to promote deep root growth, varied clonal selection for nuanced flavors, selective hand harvesting from varied vineyard topographies, and micro-vinification of small lots for final blending. Boordy's Landmark Wines have won many prestigious awards in Maryland and beyond.
