Did you know that one ton of grapes can produce 720 bottles of wine?
If you would like to enjoy a glass, visit one of these wineries near our Millersville apartments where you’re sure to experience an evening to remember:
Great Frogs Winery
At Great Frogs, located a 22-minute Uber away, the wines highlight the region’s rich heritage. Owners Nathanael and Andrea O’Shea put their heart and soul into every bottle they produce. The harvesting of the grapes is done at night to ensure that they’re handled and fermented at the lowest possible temperature. This method allows the couple to produce high-quality wines that aren’t soon forgotten. Tasting experiences are by reservation. They include learning about the farm while sipping the wine of your choice.
The Vineyard at Dodon
Spanning 555 acres, Dodon is the largest working farm in Anne Arundel County. George Stewart purchased the land in 1775, and was known for riding with George Washington during the siege at Yorktown. Today, it’s run by the Stewart family’s eighth generation and features barns, houses, and sixteen acres of vineyards. The wines represent Dodon and the community. They’re produced onsite, and the winemakers don’t use exact recipes. Tastings are by appointment, and they feature a farm tour and three types of wine. The Vineyard at Dodon is 28 minutes away by car.
Cooper’s Hawk Winery
Cooper’s Hawk is all about celebrating life’s most special moments. It’s located 45-minutes away by car but it’s definitely worth the trek! It offers a casual, yet elegant setting and guests are invited to stay awhile. To produce some of the world’s best wine, the winemaker travels from California from Chile in search of the best grapes. Each wine is nurtured based on its individual needs, and there’s something for everyone. If you’re not sure what to try, just ask. The friendly servers enjoy helping everyone find their new favorite variety. Choices include Meritage, Pinot Noir, and Cabernet Sauvignon.
