Winery
Blue Elk Vineyard, just outside the quaint town of North East, MD is on the shore of the Elk River. The tasting room is cozy and rustic, built in the renovated stables of our original 1930s horse barn! Your own personal stall to enjoy our wines makes for a private experience. If weather allows, outdoor seating on the lawn overlooks the 140 acres of our estate and is pet friendly as well!
We offer wines by the flight, glass, and bottle. Patriot, our Bordeaux-style blend, is sure to impress. Blushing Elk Rose' is unique to our tasting room, made from ripe Chambourcin grapes, fruity and spicy. Our whites range from an Oaked 2017 Chardonnay to our Velvet, a Muscat Valvin/Riesling blend. Not a wine lover? We have a crisp craft hard cider on tap.
Our kitchen makes delicious winery fare daily. Our menu is sure to please with flatbreads, dips and curated charcuterie boards! Check our socials for the weekend specials, current Sangria and Mimosas!
Blue Elk Vineyard, worth the drive.

    This is such a beautiful winery venue. You basically have your own private space as all the tables are in converted horse stalls in a beautifully restored horse barn. Very creative and comfortable. The wine is spectacular and while the food offerings are limited, they are delicious. There were three of us and we each ordered different flatbreads and shared them. They were ALL fantastic! Seasonal sangrias and mimosas were also YUM! We took our 2-yr-old granddaughter with us as well and she was totally welcome. A great place for her to hang out with us as she had plenty of space to walk around in our “stall” and we didn’t have to worry about her bothering other people. Overall a great night. We will definitely go again.

    I love coming to Blue Elk! I got married here 3 years ago and have continued coming since Blue Elk opened! Such a fun place to gather with friends, do the events, and enjoy good food and wine! Love supporting local. Came one time with a couple of friends and our moms. We sat outside and ordered one of everything on the menu and hung out all day and listened to live music. Such a fun day!

    I made a reservation because we were coming from out of state and I wanted to make sure we got a table. The estate is beautiful, right on the river, very picturesque. The tasting room looked to be an old stable redone very nicely. We sat outside and we had great views whichever way we looked. The wine was good, I did a white flight to see what they had to offer and the rest of my party got the sangria. We also got food. The fig and goat cheese flatbread was delicious. It was nice, relaxing, and quiet but in a good way. It was nice not to hear other’s conversations. I would definitely love to come back someday.

    We have visited Blue Elk on many occasions and enjoy it every time we visit. However, this visit the noise was very uncomfortable from one group that was being extremely loud in a small space. We had to almost yell to hear each other and we were only about 6 feet apart. The food was great and the service was excellent

    Great service, delicious food and wine, lovely atmosphere. We were taken back a bit at the prices for the wine flights. Where we live, a wine flight varies $10-15. And you get to keep the glass. Still, that won't keep us from coming back.

    Service, food and wine were great. Love the tasting room theme and decor. We had the Red and White flights and all were outstanding. We also tried the various flatbreads and enjoyed all of them. The special was a crab pretzel which was great as well. They knocked it out of the park.

    We had friends visit us from Virginia and had seen an ad on Facebook for the vineyard, so decided to try it out. When we pulled into the property, we were so impressed with the beauty of the land, the views and the effort put in for all the buildings there. The tasting room was easy to find, and when we got in we were blown away by the ambiance and how amazing it was! We were led to a private stall with four very comfortable leather chairs surrounding a copper topped low table. Our server was super helpful, the wine was surprisingly good for this area, and the food was the right mix of items to share with friends. The band chosen played mellow music that really enhanced the atmosphere and was just the right volume. I posted a video on Snapchat of our time there and had so many people ask where it was! We truly enjoyed it and will for sure be coming back again soon! So excited to have somewhere like this in our community!

    Beautiful winery! Food was delicious and priced as expected however the tastings were a little pricey. We made a reservation several weeks in advance had just ordered 2 more bottles of wine and was told shortly after that someone else had a reservation for our area. If that was the case wish they would have told us prior to us ordering 2 more bottles of wine.

    We expected a brunch buffet because it was advertised as a brunch. Disappointed that there were only two appetizer choices that were more appropriate as a wine tasting snack. Needless to say that we left hungry. Amazing facility and very friendly staff. We will go back but not for brunch.

I thank you for your review as we are now adjusting our wordage and making thins mor clear for our guests. We do hope you'll give us another try. Sincerely, Denise
