- BOUTIQUE FAMILY WINERY -
Casa Carmen is a boutique winery on the Eastern Shore of Maryland, dedicated to crafting premium, local, dry wines. We are the closest winery to historic Chestertown, just a 5-minute drive from the heart of downtown. Casa Carmen is strategically located on the Chesapeake Wine Trail, just 90 minutes from Washington D.C., Baltimore and Philadelphia, 50 minutes from Annapolis and Wilmington, and 3 hours from New York City.
The founders are siblings from Ecuador who have lived in Argentina, Spain and California. They learned the love of wine from their father at a young age, as it was a family tradition to gather around good food and wine. It is their hope and pleasure to bring this wholesome way of life to the beautiful shores of the Chesapeake Bay.
a renaissance in the Chesapeake
The Maryland wine industry has been rapidly growing, especially in the past decade. At the turn of the 20th century, there were no more than 12 wineries in the state. Today, that number has climbed to over 90. However, it is still far from reaching its full potential. Currently, only 3% of wine consumed in the state is local wine, yet this is rapidly changing as Maryland begins to win notoriety as a wine-producing region, including in a recent feature article at Wine Enthusiast, "Maryland Wine Regions on the Rise."
