Dodon Vineyards Wine Dinner
August 20, 2017 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm$109.00
Established in 2007, the vineyards at Dodon are fortuitously situated on rolling hills just south of Davidsonville, Maryland. When they began their first experiments with 150 vines, the goal was clear: to practice sustainable agriculture and produce exceptional wines. As ninth generation custodians of this historic farmland, and as demanding winemakers, they are committed to using viticultural practices and winemaking techniques that permit full expression of the unique deep sandy loam ‘Dodon Series Soils’ that lend their wines distinctive aromatics and subtle minerality.
Using only grapes grown on their farm, their vineyard and winemaking techniques emphasize individual attention to each cluster and protecting the quality of the fruit. They believe that deep soils and abundance of Southern Maryland sun are the keys to producing rich, balanced, aromatic wines. In other words, it is the unique qualities of the site that determine the product (“vins de terroir”), not a winemaker with a strong stylistic vision (“vins d’effort”). The result is a combination of old world and new world style that is particular to this area of Southern Maryland.
Schooner Woodwind’s Dinner Cruises are a very casual affair. Courses are served picnic-style and food is presented chilled or at room temperature. You will thoroughly enjoy the event aboard. We really do sail, so wear soft soled shoes. And please, feel free to raise the sails, steer the boat, or sit back and relax.
