About Our Winery

Boutique Vineyard and Winery in Western Maryland!

The grape grower and vintner, Gerhard Glocker, spent some of his early years helping his Uncle in Heidelberg, Germany with his vineyard and winemaking. After immigrating to the USA in 1960, he lived in Hagerstown and graduated from North High. He served his country in Vietnam and returned to attend University of Md and graduated with a degree in Geography. He then pursued a 25 year career of Management and Sales in the Transportation industry, and then a second 19 year career in Real Estate along side his wife, Suzanne.

Having lived on Cool Ridge in the home they built since 1996, sitting on the front porch looking over his terracing south facing slopes each day, he decided in 2008 to build his early childhood dream of planting grapes and making wine. Of course, at the time it was to be a "hobby"..... the rest is history and today he has established a 16 acre vineyard with 9 varietals of vinifera vines and from those grapes he has crafted award-winning wines of distinction.
