    Wine, Sip, Stay

    “It’s incredible that they have done so much in the past ten years!”

    When we drove over to the middle of nowhere on Maryland’s Eastern Shore the only thing we passed for miles was a rest stop. We finally got to the driveway that yielded a sign that said Crow Vineyards.  We were delighted to find a long driveway that led to a main house and working farm.

  • Spotlight on Crow’s 2014 Barbera

    Photo: loblolly.biz

    It has always been our intention to share with the public our sincere expression of who we are as local Kent County grape growers, and to create the best Maryland wine we can make.  We chose Barbera as it is known in the Piedmont area of Italy as the “Farmer’s grape” and the Barbera wine is enjoyed at dinner.  As farmers who enjoy growing Grass-fed Angus beef, we felt that the Barbera grape was a good choice for us to grow.  As visitors come to our farm and tasting room they are not sure if they want to try the Barbera, as it has a soft color, and once we encourage them to just give it a try they are blown away with the floral nose and the delightful flavor.

  • Barbera Authentic Excellence

    Crow Vineyard and Winery knows how to create superb wines from the Barbera grape. The Crow’s Vineyard is at an elevation just above the surrounding Mid Delmarva plain creating a wonderful cooling breeze for this intriguing grape to mature. The Barbera most known for its Italian roots is now taking on new importance as a Rosé partner due to an authentic protocol developed by the Crows. With the guidance of consultant John Levenberg the Crows studied the strengths of this varietal and added a twist by lengthening the Saignée process.*

    Barbera is not intrinsically the most flavorful grape in the viticulture universe however the Crow’s discovered that it achieves new life in the chemistry of Rosé creation. The Maryland Governer’s Cup just awarded the Rosé Best in Class to the Crow’s 2016 Barbera Rosé. Obviously the Crow’s know how to create a stunning twist on Rosé with their Barbera grape. Owner Roy Crow attributes the achievement to the care taken in growing this varietal letting it stay on the vine a bit longer than the brix reading would suggest.

    To learn more about how the Crow’s manage their farm crafted grapes and create wonderfully unique wines enjoy this “Thirsty Maryland

    Crow Vineyard & Winery Podcastpodcast.

     

    *When a winemaker desires to impart more tannin and color to a red wine, some of the pink juice from the must can be removed at an early stage in what is known as the Saignée (from French bleeding) method.
