    As the owner of Crow Vineyard & Winery, Judy Crow fields a lot of questions about her wine’s provenance and production. But it wasn’t always that way.

    “When we first got into business, nobody asked that question,” Crow said.

    In the seven years since she and her husband, Roy, opened their Eastern Shore tasting room, they’ve seen interest in their farm and wine production process take off. Now, customers believe “it’s really important to see the connection between the growing of the grapes and making of the wine,” Crow said. “The general public has a thirst to be engaged with the agricultural community.”

  • What Role Should Vidal Blanc Play in the Future of Maryland Wine?

    written by Aaron Menenberg for The Cork Report

    “There is a tension in the Maryland wine market. On one hand, consumers want the wines they know – Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Chardonnay and the Vitis vinifera like – while on the other hand, Maryland doesn’t necessarily produce versions of these varieties that meet consumer expectation.

    Early last year, I had a Vidal made by Maryland producer Crow Vineyards that blew away my expectations for the variety. Unlike many other white vinifera varieties, Vidal is a good grape for the state’s challenging and varied climate, and when made like a serious wine it can, brace yourself, be a serious wine.”
