Located on a 100-acre family farm outside of Rising Sun, Dove Valley is a popular vineyard that many local wine lovers enjoy visiting. The vineyard began in 1998 when the owners wanted to create the first vineyard in Cecil County, and today it continues to flourish with visitors stopping in throughout the year to sample the various reds, whites and blends.
Dove Valley Vineyard offers their own Cabernet Franc, Vignole, Zinfandel, Merlot, Riesling, Bianca, and Pinot Noir, and many of their wines have won local and national accolades. When you visit, you can explore the vineyard’s scenic grounds and learn about the winemaking process, purchase wine flights or bottles and kick back in the rustic lodge or outdoors on a warm spring day. Dove Valley also often hosts fun events and festivals, so be sure to check the schedule before planning a visit.
