The Vineyards at Dodon
Friday, September 3, 2021See More Register
Come join the Bailliage of Greater Washington at The Vineyards at Dodon in the bucolic Maryland countryside just 30 minutes east of Washington, D.C. near Annapolis to learn about and taste local wine, sample artisanal charcuterie, and enjoy a delicious luncheon.
Our afternoon includes a tour of the vineyard (weather-permitting) and winery and a vertical tasting of Dodon’s chardonnay and South Slope wines. As a special treat, George Williams of The Ugly Pig is providing a “grazing table” of his house-made charcuterie. Our three-course luncheon will be catered by Erik Foxx of The Polished Fox, which specializes in locally-sourced, relationship-driven ingredients.
If you’ve never thought of Maryland a wine-producing state, you’re in for a pleasant surprise. Dodon co-owners Tom Croghan and Polly Pittman, note “Our vineyards are characterized by deep, well-drained soils, renamed the ‘Dodon Series’ in 2003 by the U.S. National Cooperative Soil Survey because of their distinctive characteristics. These soils are ideal for balanced, aromatic wines with a subtle minerality that is uncommon in most winemaking regions”. Our tasting will let us discover Dodon’s outstanding terroir in a range of their wines.
If you are interested in learning more about local wine and enjoying delicious food in a picturesque setting, this is the event for you!
