Story

Established in 2007, our vineyards are situated on rolling hills just south of Davidsonville, Maryland. When we began our first experiments with 150 vines, the goal was clear: to practice sustainable agriculture and produce exceptional wines. As ninth generation custodians of this historic farmland, and as demanding winemakers, we are committed to using viticultural practices and winemaking techniques that permit full expression of the unique deep sandy loam ‘Dodon Series Soils’ that lend our wines distinctive aromatics and subtle minerality.  Now, five years later, we have selected the best varietals to grow on our land, planted our vines with the enthusiastic help of our family, friends, and neighbors, and often celebrated with a good party after a hard day’s work. Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Sauvignon cover the southern facing hills, while Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay are planted on the north facing slopes.
