About the Trail

Experience the Beauty, the Magic, and the Flavor of the Chesapeake Wine Trail.

Whether you are on your way to the beach or just taking a drive to admire the beautiful Bay, the Chesapeake Wine Trail will lead you through one of the most scenic and charming parts of the state. East of the Chesapeake Bay, Maryland’s Eastern Shore is abundant with seafood, beaches, wildlife and history, and now a beautiful—and delicious—wine trail.

The Eastern Shore is known for its warm days and cool nights. The soil is sandy and well drained, and the climate is moderated by the Chesapeake Bay. This region is growing quickly and it’s no surprise, considering the beautiful waterfront views, rich heritage, abundant wild life and distinctive grape growing environment.

When you come to the Eastern Shore to visit our wineries, you will be charmed by the boutique atmosphere, intimate settings and the attention to detail and quality. Stroll along the bay or take a trip to the past while visiting some historical sights…all while enjoying some of Maryland’s best wine along the Chesapeake Wine Trail.

About the Winery

Vineyard owner and winemaker Thomas R. Shelton has been growing grapes since 1999 on his Eden, MD property which borders the pristine Wicomico Creek. It is the first licensed vineyard in Wicomico County. The name Bordeleau - “edge of the water” - was chosen to reflect not only the distinctive environment where our grapes are hand-harvested, but also the favorable climate similarities to the Bordeaux region of France. Currently, 10 different varieties of grapes are under cultivation on 10+ acres.
