Thanksgiving Market: Cygnus Wine Cellars

"It's a blend of art and science. There's an artistic and a technical side. There are a lot of technically correct wines that are stylistically boring. You must take the science and merge it with a sense of style and artistry."
Ray Brasfield - Winemaker/Owner

We have been very eager to have Cygnus Wine Cellars with us this Market season. This small family winery, located in Manchester, Carroll County, first crushed grapes in 1995. Winemaker Ray Brasfield creates wonderful, balanced wines and consults other growers in order to promote the very best possible wine culture in the region.

Cygnus offers a full range of wines, from dry, semi-dry and sweet table wines to sparkling wines. Visit the Cygnus website for a complete list and descriptions of the wines, and a detailed description of the winemaking styles in use at Cygnus.

Visit Ray at Cheverly Community Market this Saturday. Talk to him about the wines learn about the growing tradition of spectacular Maryland wine.
