PADS VIEW FARM:
for premium wines...
Family farm & vineyard beginning in 2002, we grew from wooded shrubbery to lush grassy vineyard and Christmas tree fields.
We specialize in producing premium quality wine grapes. Multiple wineries source our grapes to bottle up for all to enjoy.
Loose berries in clusters 3-5 inches long. Deep blue/black color at harvest. Being a Bordeaux grape from France, Merlot Grapes have a velvety finish with after tastes of chocolate & cherries. Merlot is a very popular wine & can be blended with other Bordeaux Grapes. As a matter of FACT, our vineyard is very similar to the weather in Bordeaux France. Although our winters can be a little cooler in comparison, we protect our Merlot vines. Our merlot vines are graphed at the nursery with American rootstock to withstand our colder winter temperatures. PADS View Farm's terroir ensures our grapes produce exceptional wines & therefore are sought after by many wineries in our region.
Syrah Grapes are tight clusters with thin skin & can be very challenging to grow in Northern Maryland Weather. Clusters can get up to 12 inches long with cluster weight being over 8-pounds! PADS View Farm is ONLY 1 of the 2-growers who can grow a quality Syrah Grape in the State of Maryland. My son Dylan has learned the tricks, but this requires endless days of hand work Syrah vine by Syrah vine to achieve exceptional quality. Syrah grapes are almost a dark black color at harvest. Syrah is normally blended with other Bordeaux Grapes to achieve a peppery aftertaste.
