Boordy Vineyards has played a seminal role in the renaissance of regional wines in America. Founders Philip and Jocelyn Wagner established Maryland's first commercial winery in Baltimore City in 1945. In 1980, the winery relocated to their historic 240-acre farm in the Long Green Valley of northeastern Baltimore County. The winery is housed in a 19th century stone barn whose massive walls provide an ideal environment for the production and aging of wine. After almost two years of planning, construction has begun on a 6800 sq. ft. winery building that will rise behind Boordy's main barn. The exterior will be faithful to the farm's unique architecture; the interior will house a new laboratory, temperature controlled bottled wine storage, and thirty-two new stainless fermentation tanks that incorporate state-of-the-art technology for optimum wine quality. Walton was brought on board to design and install the unique HVAC and plumbing systems and has worked with the architect and the owner to integrate these systems into the unique building. Construction has begun with a fall 2013 completion in time for the fall grape harvest.
