This week at the Market: Elk Run Vineyards

We were so happy to have Bob Cecil of Elk Run Vineyards with us at our last Market -- so many wonderful wines to sample! Bob is back this week, which is a special treat -- if you tried something at our last Market and didn't buy (or didn't buy enough!) you have a golden opportunity this Saturday. 

Bob sends this message:
Elk Run Vineyards from Frederick County will be returning to Cheverly Farmers Market this Saturday, August 10. Taking over 600 International, National and Regional awards has made Elk Run 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 4 Gold 'Best of Class' in the Atlantic Seaboard Wine Competition. . . the first winery to have done so in the history of that competition. 
This week, Elk Run will be bringing a wide selection of top wines including our just-released 2012 Cold Friday Vineyard Chardonnay - a crisp, refrehing, less-oaky style white from our 18-year old vineyard. We are also bringing our new 2011 Syrah that received an "Exceptional" rating from the Beverage Testing Institute. We will also be pouring samples of our Port and Vin de Jus Glace premium dessert wines as well as our extremely popular fresh Sangria. Finally, try a sample of our Gewurztraminer - a wine with an unpronouncable name but with outstanding flavors of lychee fruit, spice and floral notes.
Make sure to stop by, sample wonderful Maryland wines, and find a bottle or two for your best late-summer meals!
