Wine starts in the vineyard, in fact, within the soils beneath the vines. As you can see, we are a hands-on family business. In the center photo, we are hand pruning our vines. Even our Boerboel helps out! Our vineyard utilizes a high density planting and is one of the largest Chambourcin plantings in the State of Maryland. By high density, we mean that vines are planted 4’ apart in rows that are only 6’ wide. By planting at such a close spacing, our vines compete for water and nutrients. This helps control leaf growth. Mt. Felix’s soils are southern exposed, deep, fertile, and well drained. The vineyard overlooks the Chesapeake Bay and benefits from sunlight refraction and a constant breeze. The sunlight and breeze helps the air circulate through the vineyard. Additionally, we manage our leaf canopy by hand pruning excess vigor.

The price will be reasonable, and the fruit more accessible. If you like super premium Chardonnay then Rick Kinzbrunner's Giaconda Estate, Cullen's Kevin John, Mo... Read More

  • Let me start by saying I pretty much drink chardonnay from France or California. If it's 90% butter and little else, I'm out. If it tastes like lemon juice and weeds, I'm also out. If California, I'm looking for nicely developed fruit profile without so much oak that it taste like I'm sucking on a tree. I like Peter Michael chardonnay ***a lot**... Read More

  • I just finished reading 10 pages of very interesting, insightful and articulate posts about the perceived demise of California Cabernet Sauvignon. There was a lot of data contributing to the perception that California is in the middle of a high alcohol "fruit bomb" era.I'm not going to pretend to be Robert Parker Jr., James Laube or even several...
