Exploring a Farm Winery in Maryland

We will visit a winery located on an authentic, historical property in the Agricultural Reserve of Montgomery County, Maryland, just thirty minutes from Washington DC.

Rocklands Farm is 34 scenic acres working farm, where you can pick up pasture-raised meats and local goods and enjoy wine as you relax in the peaceful, rural setting.

The vineyards at Rocklands Farm are 100% free of herbicides. In lieu of spraying herbicides for weed control, they practice mechanical tillage, planting of cover crops to out-compete the weeds, along with an overarching philosophy of improving the soil composition with organic matter and organic soil treatments so that broadleaf weeds no longer have a competitive advantage.
