Updates from our latest Newsletter:



Spring is here! And Terrapin Station Winery has been abuzz with activity. We know turtles don't necessarily exude excitement and enthusiasm, but we have a lot of new things to tell you about!


Our Tasting Room officially opens for the season this Saturday, March 24. We will be open from 12-6 pm on Saturdays and Sundays through the summer. Beginning June 14, we expand to open Thursdays and Fridays as well. Read more below about what's new in the Tasting Room and our new wines. Both our bottled and box wines, including our popular Better Red than Dead, are available for tasting.


Also, at the Winery, the Elkton Eclipse Vintage Base Ball Club returns to play their home games in our fields. Opening Day is Sunday, April 25 at 12:00 p.m. Bring a chair, a picnic lunch, and plan to have some wine while you sit back and watch.


We have planned several big events throughout the summer at the Winery. On June 16-17, we'll have an Art and Chocolate event featuring The Artsy Girls' Guild and chocolates by the Perfect Truffle. July 14 will see the Pyrates Royale, Salty Dog, and other entertainment for our Pirate Weekend. (More details to come soon) And September 22, we will have a Harvest Festival. We're also planning a big event for Halloween weekend at the winery. We're also participating in several wine festivals in Maryland. And yep, we'll probably need volunteers for a few.


To keep track and to dig a little deeper, we've launched a new Blog on our website - Drink Wine, Think Turtle. We'll be launching a new series, Terrapin Tips for Winetasting - to provide some insights for visiting tasting rooms and for tasting wines at festivals.


Keep reading to find out more. We look forward to seeing you in person or in cyberspace soon.

TSW Bottles and Boxes

In 2008 we introduced Maryland's first and only boxed wine. Boxed wine packaging, which had made up 100% of our offerings, are more convenient and more eco-friendly than bottles. Fast forward to 2011 and we introduced... bottles. What gives?

We are still big believers in boxed wine packages. It's lighter, more convenient, can be taken anywhere, is fully recyclable and keeps the wine fresh for an extended period of time. It's perfect for the vast majority of wines in the world today: wines that are meant to be consumed when they are purchased. We have always said, however, that the limited shelf life of the boxed wine package (about 18 months, depending on the wine) does not make them practical for wines with aging potential. So, when we think we have a special wine that could potentially get better with age, we now have a second package: 750 ml bottles with a twist.

In April 2011, we planted two more acres of new vineyards, expanding our plantings of Cayuga, Traminette, St. Vincent and Marquette.

Rob and the guys created this video to document the planting and took photos of the Vineyards.
