Chesapeake Wine Trail: Crow Farm, Vineyard, B and B

The Crow farm, vineyard and farmstay bed and breakfast makes for an ideal day trip while investigating the Chesapeake Wine Trail or weekend away at their bed and breakfast.

Maryland’s Eastern Shore, the area east of the Chesapeake Bay, is most known for its beaches and seafood but it now has a burgeoning wine trail.  The climate and sandy soil are ideal for growing grapes.  The Chesapeake Wine Trail will open up new vistas for the oenophile. 

The Crow family re-imagined their family farm and in 2010 planted a 4 acre vineyard with additional acres planted in 2012.  Achieving great success early with their 2012 Vidal Blanc and Barbera Rosé which just won gold medals at the 23rd Annual Maryland Governor’s Cup.  A small vineyard at this time, you won’t be seeing them at the large wine festivals – they aren’t producing in those quantities but the wines are available for tasting at the vineyard.
