Picture this: a peaceful spring day here at the farm, learning about local seasonal blooms, making your own arrangement, and painting your creation with watercolor, glass of wine in hand. Sounds almost like a dream, doesn’t it? Well lucky for you, it’s not! On April 26th, our resident farmer-florists @sungold_flower_co along with poet/artist/educator @madebythuanh are holding a day long workshop here at Rocklands. Spots are filling up so if you’d like to join them, don’t delay. Details can be found at www.sungoldflowerco.com/workshops

NEW WINE ALERT: 2019 Farmhouse is our early release Chambourcin which is made in a much different way than the rest of our reds. The wine undergoes a carbonic maceration to accentuate its fruit characteristics and keep the tannin levels low. It never goes into barrel and instead spends its entire life in stainless steel creating a bright, juicy & dry wine. This vintage has notes of strawberry, raspberry, and black cherry. Let’s drink!

Pizza Brama

We're sad to share the news that Pizza Brama is permanently closing their doors and will no longer be serving at Rocklands. We're so blessed to have had the opportunity to partner with them, learn from them, and foster community together through delicious food and wine.

Thank you Michael Carignan and the Pizza Brama team for being part of the Rocklands family for the past five years. We'll miss you and your pizza (A LOT) but look forward to celebrating your next chapter over a bottle (or two) of wine!

Despite this sad news, rest assured we've been working tirelessly to find top notch food vendors to replace Pizza Brama this upcoming season and we're excited by all the delicious options. Stay tuned over the next couple of weeks for more information about all the new and fantastic food you'll be able to enjoy on the farm this year!

Dear friends,

Pizza Brama is closing.

We have gotten to know you and your children. Some of you like arugula put on your pizza at the last minute… others want it wilted. No garlic for some; others can’t get enough garlic and spice. “Extra crispy please!” “Get the good cheese pizza, Mom.” We have relished it all.

When we started, your children could not see above the counter. Later they loved to watch us make their pizza. In the last two years, a few have applied for positions with us in our tent. We are honored and humbled.

Yes, I, Michael, am physically okay. No health issues. (Many have checked in to make sure I am okay. Thank you.) Financially we are fine. 2019 was a banner year. The core issue: the business has been to some degree a runaway success. So much so that it has run away to a place I am not suited to lead.

I started the company because I wanted to devote myself to crafting a product that would delight our guests and would become theirs. You would take possession of it. We would be “your pizza place”. Well, it worked!

I did not have a plan for if it worked. We pushed hard to get the engine started. It picked up speed on its own. Now the engine is dragging me behind it on the gravel road. I am grateful that you enjoyed simple things done well.

This is a pause. A step back. A re-evaluation to come at this again with more knowledge and significantly more experience to plan for: “what if we are right?” What if people want a well-crafted product, one that isn't intimidating? A product crafted by people you learn to trust.

This might be seen as a funeral. I prefer the tradition of celebrating life. Thank you for all the delight in these 5 years. We hope you enjoyed our work.

To be continued...

Sincerely, Michael

General information

Although the nearest vineyard to DC, Rocklands is still more of a locals’ secret. Come share in the serenity of the farm, located in Montgomery County’s Agriculture Reserve and bordering Seneca State Park. Enjoy wine tastings and farm-fresh lunch (lunch when in season) and shop at our on-farm market for our wine and pasture-raised meats. A great place to bring the family and enjoy farm-life.
