Catoctin Breeze Vineyard

15010 Roddy Road
240-578-3831

Hours: Year Round

Our vineyard is seated along the rolling hills of Eastern Appalachia's Catoctin Mountains. Superb soil drainage, combined with few nutrients within the limestone soil naturally forces the vine to send its roots deep into the ground in search of water, creating a stress on the vines that produces grapes of richer flavor. True to our name, the site of our vineyard enjoys a constant breeze from the Catoctin Mountains each day and night, bringing much needed relief during the summer heat and humidity.

Catoctin Breeze Vineyard was officially established in early 2010 with the planting of the first two plots of vines on the property, covering approximately two acres. Our first harvest of these plots was completed in late summer 2012. A third plot of vines has since been planted, covering an additional two acres. We anticipate the first harvest of this plot in late summer 2015.

We firmly believe that great wines start in the vineyard. From the beginning, we provide thoughtful attention and care to the vines. This same level of care and diligence continues during the winemaking process, in which we practice the most gentle methods, from the hand selection and sorting of mature grapes to the final bottling stage. Our ultimate goal is to transform the grapes into elegant wines, nuanced with the unique expression of the land from which they are grown.

One of the best wineries, if not the best wine, I have ever had in my life. They also have a great selection of mead. The 2016 Bolero Blend is a great red for the couple that can't decide between sweet or dry. It starts sweet like a Moscato, but finishes like a Zinfandel. One of the most interesting wines and a great compromise for my wife and I. Plan on buying a case next time I visit.

Great vibe! We packed a picnic and came out after hiking at Catoctin Mountain Park on a Saturday! The fire pit, and guitar player mixed with excellent weather made it impossible to leave before having another glass! Shout out to Kylie for some excellent service all afternoon!

Great wine, and for a very young winery even more impressive. Extremely friendly staff. We were given a tour by the owner, who took the time to explain their wines and process. A wonderful Sunday afternoon.
