I have to admit – we had a moment of apprehension when we first thought to introduce canned wine into the marketplace. But we also recognized the potential for making delicious wine more accessible and unencumbered – for life’s adventures – and we believe people deserve to enjoy wines they love with people they love, anywhere.
Accessibility is one thing. The palate is another. And we settled for nothing less than delicious, fun, and Maryland to the core. Our vision came to life on November 1, 2017, we became the first winery in the Mid-Atlantic to can wine. And not just any wine. Wines that are true to our principles: 100% local & natural. All the grapes are grown right here in Maryland, fermented on our farm with wild yeast and canned on-site without filtration or "makeup."
Fast forward four months to our second canning run and our core belief remains the same: these wines are intended for true wine-lovers on the go – living life to the full and enjoying delicious and expressive wines along the way. And I have to admit that these new gems exceeded even my own expectations.
Here’s a rundown on our new lineup of wild, unfiltered canned wines:
Farmer Fizz Rosé
This delectable sparkling rosé is a blend of Maryland-grown Merlot, Syrah, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Chambourcin, and Petit Verdot. This wine is characterized by wonderfully fine bubbles, pleasant red fruit aromas, refreshingly light texture and crisp acidity. This Sparkling Rosé pairs with nearly everything! Think oysters on the half shelf, chargrilled salmon, sushi and anything on the Sunday brunch menu!
This mouthwatering rosé is a blend of Maryland-grown Merlot, Syrah, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Chambourcin, and Petit Verdot.

Pair this wine with barbecued ribs, lobster roll, Chesapeake bay crab cakes, pan seared scallops, or simply enjoy it on the patio with friends!
Vine & Vigor
This refreshing dry white wine is a blend of Maryland-grown Chardonnay, Viognier, Chardonel and Vidal Blanc. This wine offers aromas of golden delicious apples, mandarin orange peel, orange starburst, white flowers and mineral notes. On the palate, lively texture, bracing acidity and a lingering finish. Pair this wine with grilled fish, a slice of watermelon, and anything with fresh avocados, tomatoes, onions, olives and feta cheese.
This delicious semi-sweet white wine is a blend of Maryland-grown Chardonnay, Vidal Blanc and Muscat. This wine offers aromas of peaches, pears, mango and other tropical fruit with a touch of white flowers; baby’s breath and hydrangeas. On the palate, candied oranges, lemon-lime soda, green apples and soft, silky texture. Pair this wine with anything from the Chesapeake Bay – think crab cakes, oysters, shrimp salad, or sunny days by the water. On a sweeter side, enjoy it with desserts with fresh fruits, honey, crepes, tarts or even bread pudding.
