This Week at the Market: Elk Run Vineyards

Continue to celebrate Maryland Buy Local Week with Elk Run Vineyards, who will be returning to Cheverly Community Market this Saturday. The Frederick County winery, nestled in the rolling hills in Mount Airy, has taken over 600 International, National, and Regional awards, making it not only one of the top 100 wineries on the East Coast, but the most acclaimed winery in Maryland. In 2012, Elk Run won 10 Gold Medals and four Gold 'Best of Class' in the Atlantic Seaboard Wine Competition... the first winery to have ever done so in the history of that competition.

This week, Elk Run will have a wide selection of its top wines including their limited production Liberty Tavern Chardonnay, a Burgundy-style white from their 33-year old vineyard. They'll also have two wines that received high scores in the 2013 World Wine Competition: Syrah - a full-bodied red wine that recently was awarded a 94 and Liberty Tavern Cabernet Sauvignon, a limited production red that scored a 92 from their outstanding 2010 vintage. In addition, Elk Run will pour samples of their excellent Port and Vin de Jus Glace premium dessert wines as well as their extremely popular fresh Sangria, ideal for these hot summer weekends.

Make sure to visit Bob Cecil and Elk Run Vineyards this Saturday at Cheverly Community Market!
