Anyone who has been over to my house lately, has probably been offered a glass of my wine of choice- Boordy "Rockfish" Chardonnay. In fact our wine refrigerator (thanks Julie and Derek) is stocked with Boordy! Jason drinks the "Oriole" Riesling.
The Chardonnay is described on the Boordy website as "Crisp, clean, and dry - but very approachable, with hints of tropical fruit in the nose (banana, pineapple), honeydew melon, and a suggestion of herbs." It's delicious and perfect for this time of the year.
For those of you not familiar, Boordy is a vineyard located right in Baltimore County and are always a popular stand at the MD Wine Festival each year in Westminster. They have three series of wines; Icon, Just for Fun, and Landmark. The icon series is where the Chardonnay and Riesling I mentioned above are from.
I admit, the icon series is my favorite. I love the flavors but I really love the labels. Each label has a different black and white "engraving" that features a different Maryland wildlife creature.

The summer and fall are filled with events at the vineyard. You don't have to go to Boordy to get these wines, most liquor stores in the area are now selling Boordy (even my local Paradise shop). Bottles are inexpensive too, ranging from about $10.00- $26.00.
The vineyard is great place for a party too. I attended a birthday party there last spring- it was beautiful :)
Look for the Chardonnay and Merlot at our wedding. It will fit our "theme" nicely!
