Vineyard owner and winemaker Thomas R. Shelton has been growing grapes since 1999 on his Eden, MD property bordering the pristine Wicomico Creek. The first licensed vineyard in Wicomico County, the name Bordeleau - “edge of the water” - was chosen to reflect not only the distinctive environment where their grapes are hand-harvested, but also the favorable climate similarities to the Bordeaux region of France. Currently, 12 different varieties of grapes are under cultivation on 13 acres.
