From Interstate 270, take Exit 22 (Hyattstown/Barnesville). Off the ramp, take Maryland Route 109 (Old Hundred Road) south for 3 miles to Comus Road (at the newly-renovated and exquisite/inviting Comus Inn). Turn right and proceed 1.5 miles. The vineyard is located at 18125 Comus Road, 8/10ths of a mile short of the entrance to Sugarloaf Mountain.
This is an area of scenic pastoral vistas known for its rolling hills and farms, and devoted to the maintenance of green space and blue skies (most of the time). Our 92-acre farm abuts the scenic Sugarloaf Mountain conservation and recreation area and is within close proximity to other countryside attractions.
