  • 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.”

  • 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.

  • Strengthening the Community by Building Local Food Partnerships


    Crow Vineyard has been a fixture here in the community for three generations. As a working farm, it has provided agricultural commodities, beef, jobs, and now superb wine for all of us to enjoy. Judy and Roy Crow’s commitment to their family’s traditions, their craft, and their community lead inexorably to the decision to promote similar businesses rooted in the same locale and committed to the same high standards of quality, innovation, and community. It is through the dynamic promotion of local partnerships that those of us who make and sell locally produced quality food and drink can succeed and provide a better solution to food products made distantly by corporate behemoths with no commitment to our community.

  • Authentic Farm Table

    In Search of Authentic Farm to Table

    The term “Farm to Table” has penetrated our food culture to the degree now that most people don’t think twice about what it means. According to guest NPR writer and chef, Andrea Reusing, “The ubiquity that makes farm-to-table meaningless also gives it its power. It has come to signify authenticity on almost any level….” Cultural pundits such as Vanity Fair magazine are bemoaning the loss of the real meaning of Farm to Table …”Is it time to table farm to table?” But is it really lost? Where does one find the farm to table concept authentically rendered? On the farm!
