First the soil type on the Eastern Shore is perfect for growing grapes. Grapes like well drained soil, so the sandy soil is perfect.
Second the weather is great for growing. The temperatures in summer and winter are not too extreme. There are not too many hot tropical days in the summer and the winters are cold, but not extreme giving the vines adequate rest time.
Finally, the shore is flat, allowing for a full day of sun for the grapes to ripen.

Bordeleau Vineyards and Winery
Bordeleau Vineyards and Winery is located closest to Sugar Water Manor being right up 13 from us. The name translates to the Waters Edge as it sits on the Wicocomo Creek. The vineyard climate is also close to the Bordeaux region. The tasting room with both indoor and outdoor areas is open year round. I highly suggest you checkout the events happening as you plan your visit.
