This Fall, Boordy Vineyards, Maryland’s oldest winery, will celebrate the completion of a project that has been five years in the making, and is the largest undertaken in the winery’s 68-year history.

The 7,200 square foot building, located adjacent to Boordy’s iconic 19th century barns, will house thirty-two new stainless fermentation tanks that incorporate state-of-the-art technology for optimum wine quality as well as a new laboratory and temperature controlled room for bottled wine storage. The exterior of the building will remain true to the farm’s unique architecture and includes a timber frame production porch and rustic stone walls.

On September 12, beginning at 11 am, over 100 people are expected to gather at the Boordy winery for the official ribbon cutting ceremony and program to unveil their new building and production facility. The ceremony will include speeches from Maryland Comptroller Peter Franchot and other local dignitaries as well as a grape crushing demonstration, building tours, light fare and Boordy wine tastings for attendees.
