More about The Vineyards at Dodon
The Vineyards at Dodon has elevated Maryland winemaking with its environmentally sensitive practices on their 555-acre working family farm. They know that the structure and texture of a wine, not to mention the overall quality, is dependent upon the structure and texture of the soil.
The winemakers' ecologically sound practices for producing wines from grapes compatible with the soil in the region result in rich, balanced aromatic wines. The "living" soil directly impacts the exquisitely complex flavors that Dodon wines present.
From The Vineyards at Dodon website: "It started with the decision to grow international vinifera varieties - Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot, Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay. Despite the challenges of growing these varieties in our region, careful preparation, attention to detail, and painstaking viticulture have demonstrated the benefits of this decision. Dodon now has more than 31,000 vines densely planted over 17 acres in three adjacent vineyards."
