Elk Run Vineyards

Underneath the same country sky which blankets Frederick County Dairy farms and horse stables, the Elk Run vineyard sits on the rolling hills of Mt Airy on an original land grant to Lord Baltimore in 1756. These ideal growing conditions have allowed consistent award winning wines by the same winemaker Fred Wilson for 35 years, producing National and International Gold Silver and Double Gold medals for such wines as Cabernet Franc, Chardonnay and Gewurzrtraminer. Elk Run's winemaker crafts these libations using a blend of contemporary equipment and Old-World wine making techniques. They harvest grapes from plots planted in schist and shale soil designed to follow sustainable agricultural practices, a modus operandi that has helped the winery become one of the top 100 wineries on the East Coast, as well as one of the most acclaimed wineries in the state of Maryland.
