Taste of Tuscany comes to Cheverly Market- Make Running Hare part of your local menu!

If you ever go to any of Maryland's wine festivals, you will see long lines forming to taste some of Barb and Mike Scarborough's Running Hare Vineyard
's Napa and Tuscan-style wines. Their beautiful 300-acre Southern Maryland farm features gently curving hills planted with grapes and a lovely new building appropriate for seated dinners of up to 260 guests. You would think you were visiting the hills around Florence, not Prince Frederick, all within an hour's drive of Cheverly.

Their Pinot Grigio is their best-selling wine, a balanced citrus complement to any fish or chicken dish. Jack Rabbit Red and White wines are popular fruit-filled choices and the peppery notes of their wonderful Malbec are a good match for beef and pasta. Looking for an after-dinner wine akin to tawny port--ask for the Chambourcin, made from grapes that thrive on their farm.
