Wine Tasting:  Boordy Vineyards with Rob DeFord

Friday, September 8, 7-9pm

Save the Date!  Details to follow!

Boordy Vineyards is the first commercial winery established in Maryland, back in 1945 by the Wagners, in Baltimore County.  Their mission was to make good table wines.  In 1965, the Long Green Farm, owned for generations by the DeFord Family, planted grapes on a portion of their property in northeastern Baltimore County.  These grapes were used to make the Boordy wine.  In 1980, the DeFord Family purchased the Boordy Winery, and moved operations to their 19th century stone barn.  

Through the years, Rob Deford received his degree in Enology from UC Davis, developed and led production to more than 97,000 gallons, and cultivates more than 40 acres of wine grapes.  Farming, wine production and livestock operations livestock co-exist with its rolling hills, valleys and fishing streams through a policy of environmental sustainability.  Boordy Wines are recognized for their quality and value!  Join us as Rob takes us through a sampling of wines from The Landmark Series, The Icon Series, and the Sweetland Series!
