3 minute read

Passion lives at Boordy Vineyards, and to make great wine is to love its home.

Boordy Vineyards, the oldest winery in Maryland, started 75 years ago as a story of grapes and wine with a family that has flourished by being planted in a good location and establishing deep roots. Celebrate this exciting milestone at a special virtual program with AMA Baltimore and Boordy Vineyards. At our upcoming AMA in the PM event, we’ll be joined by James Prichard, Director of Winery Sales & Marketing at Boordy Vineyards, for a must-attend unique wine tasting experience. James will:

  • Share the history of Boordy Vineyards
  • Highlight their 75th year anniversary celebration
  • Discuss their three different wine brands and respective marketing strategies for each line
  • Talk about the increase in online activity and shift from big, ticketed events
  • Explain their grassroots marketing efforts and distribution channels

This unique program will include a virtual wine tasting with three featured wines (the newly released Spritz, Petit Cab, and Riesling) along with an overview on each wine, food pairings, tasting notes, and more.

Ticket options include all three wines, one wine, or attending the event without any wine. All wines will be shipped directly from Boordy Vineyards in advance of the event and requires registration by EOD Sunday, December 6. Shipping is included. Boordy Vineyards can ship wine to MD, DC, VA, PA, NY, NH, NC, MA, FL, GA, MO, CO, CA, WI, MN, and IA. Must be 21 and older to register for this event.
