“The Wine Harvest”

Harvest at Rocklands is an important milestone marking the culmination of hard work, good timing, and a whole lot of patience. As we wrapped up the last of our estate harvest this past week, we captured some of the highlights of the early mornings and long days our dedicated team embraced, during one of the most critical moments of wine making.🍇 While the job is not over just yet, with the rest of the grapes from our partner vineyards still to come, we take a moment now to celebrate the fruits of our labor! No pun intended 😉

Some of you may recognize this as the house at Rocklands Farm Winery in Poolesville MD. I went out there yesterday to do some promo videos for our big show there on October 9th called “Common Good in The Barn”. It’ll be a full band ticketed show benefitting the Manna Food Center. It’s a great cause and a wonderful venue so grab your tickets now. Link in the comments below.

It's nothing but newness this weekend as we dive into the first releases of our 2021 barrel-aged reds, alongside a very limited peachy draft cider.  Learn all about them below!

_________________________________

(Bountiful Draft Cider)

Just six weeks ago, we harvested a few hundred pounds of estate-grown peaches, hand-pitted and cut, and then steeped them in our house cider to referment in cask.  And voila..."Bountiful" was born! You don't want to miss this one.

_________________________________

(2021 Hillside)

We're excited for this new release of the Hillside.  This wine is made up of a large percentage of Petit Verdot, giving it more color and tannin compared to the 2020 vintage. On the nose, there is a spicy quality from the Petit Verdot, offering hints of sage. On the palate, notes of violet really stand out, and the fruit transforms from more rich/stewed aromas to more fresh fruit presence on the palate.

Descriptors: black cherry, plum, licorice, blueberry, violet, sage, dried herbs

_________________________________

(2021 Rockridge *Cellar Club Exclusive*)

The grapes for Rockridge are grown by our good friend Matt Harsh at 78 Acres in Smithburg, Maryland. The wine is made from 100% Blaufränkisch from a single plot, grown on a rather steep and rocky slope at the foothills of the Appalachians. Also known as Lemberger, Blaufränkisch is a native grape to Austria, but has now found a home at many sites up and down the East Coast. The grape has quickly gained a reputation in vineyards of the Mid-Atlantic. In our first vintage release of Blaufränkisch, only a single 500L and 225L barrel were produced, resulting in only a coveted few 80 cases total production for 2021. This wine is exclusively available for Cellar Club members to purchase.

Descriptors: raspberry, cranberry, pomegranate, earthy, mineral, flint, herbal, spicy

Our first harvest is underway! 🍇

A few weeks ago we mentioned verasion, the process where the grapes start to change colors and start ripening. Well this week we’ve been gearing up to start our first harvest! While the reds will still hang on the vines for a few more weeks, our white grapes (specifically Chardonnay and Chardonel) have been going through verasion for several weeks now and are ready to be picked!

Check back in for more updates from the vineyard and winery! Cheers to a great 2022 harvest 🥂

One of the most visible signs of the upcoming harvest: veraison! In the weeks leading up to full ripeness, grape clusters will begin to change color (more visibly with reds, or course) berry by berry, a process called veraison 🤓

Pictured here are clusters of Tannat and Chardonel from the Rocklands Estate vineyard. Stay tuned as we start harvest later this month! #mdwine

Edit: I am pleased to learn you are not associated with the Rockland Farms LLC involved in the law suit that effectively ended a 200 year old historic landmark and commuter access at White's Ferry. I sincerely hope the similarity in names does not negatively affect your business.
