At Six Wicket Vineyards, our mission is to grow superior quality vinifera grapes. Once harvested, our grapes will be sold to the top tier Maryland wineries and used in the production of their award-winning wines. As an environmental steward, we use sustainable practices in the field and continually look to improve on them, minimizing the impact on the land. Although we are a small family owned vineyard, we strive to be the best and have fun along the way.
Edward and Kathy O'Laughlin began their journey into the world of Maryland viticulture in 2014. Although the vineyard is a new endeavor for them, farming has been in Ed’s family for generations. In September of 2016 after an extensive search for just the right property, the O'Laughlin's purchased a 35 acre farm in Myersville, MD that has all of the right ingredients for a top notch all vinifera vineyard - "Six Wicket Vineyards".
The name Six Wicket Vineyards, as well as its logo, are reflective of Ed's love of the game of croquet. Once the vineyard is established it will also include a regulation size croquet court.
