More media has focused attention on reducing the human impact on the environment.
The Inn has been concerned about using products from sustainable sources for many years. We have used locally grown produce from organic and sustainable farms for more than 12 years and have had organic and sustainable wines on our list since the beginning. We have had a Wine Spectator Award of Excellence since 1996 and we won Sante' Magazines Best Mid Atlantic Restaurant in 2005 for the sustainable category.
One of our major suppliers, Dogwood Farms won the United States Department of Agriculture Best Small Farm in the United States in 2002. Sustainable practices and Bay Friendly land management was part of the criteria. The number of certified organic and sustainable wines have increased dramatically. Many experts feel that not only reduces the environmental impact but has improved the quality of the wines.
