Wine Returns to the Market -- Elk Run Vineyards!

Bob and Susan Cecil of Elk Run Vineyards are looking forward to returning to the Cheverly Community Market for our 5th year...and we're looking forward to their return!
One of the top wineries on the East Coast, Frederick County's Elk Run combines modern research and technology with traditions and practices of old world wine making. The result? Fine wines with character, structure, balance and good color.

This Saturday, Elk Run Vineyards will have a wide variety of wine for you to choose from...start planning now!
Dry Wines:

Rich nose of pineapple and flowers with a soft complex finish.

Full-bodied, crisp and lightly oaked.
GYPSY ROSE 2009 - A rose of Cabernet Sauvignon and Pinot Noir.
Dry with cherry and rose petal aromas, smooth and full bodied.
RED DOOR - Cold Friday Vineyard, MD 2009
