The soil and the climate have always been here. But it took a few centuries to find the right grapes to plant, to develop the needed modern techniques in the vineyards and wineries, and to see winegrowers emerge with the knowledge, stamina, resources and vision to create iconic, high-quality wines vintage after vintage.

Five questions with Sarah O'Herron of Black Ankle Vineyards - December 05, 2014
It would be oversimplifying to say that Sarah O'Herron and Edward Boyce, co-owners of Black Ankle Vineyards in Mount Airy, left their business consulting careers because they liked to drink, but there's a seed of truth in that. Read full article at The Baltimore Sun

Maryland: not just for crabs anymore - May 18, 2014
I expected Black Ankle’s wines to stand out in the group of 31 that we tasted, given the fact that everybody, including Dave, who follows Maryland wine considers them the hottest new thing. And I had a great conversation with the winemakers, which I’ll get into below. But it’s more important to point out that ... Read full article at Palate Press

Black Ankle Vineyards, Mt. Airy, MD – October 18th, 2013 - November 04, 2013
Right on the heels of my Linganore visit, was a stop by nearby Black Ankle Vineyards after a short, ten minute drive.

The winery, located at the foot of the Appalachian Mountains in Maryland's Linganore AVA, was founded by former management consultants Ed Boyce and Sarah O'Herron.
