Private Rentals

Our lovingly restored 19th century Big Barn with its hand hewn timbers and fieldstone walls provides gracious accommodation for gatherings large and small.

We invite you to host your private event with us.

Boordy has been growing and making fine wines in Maryland since 1945. Located on the R. B. Deford family farm in rural Baltimore County, our iconic winery buildings are listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

At the heart of our farm is the restored 19th century Big Barn whose hand-hewn timbers and fieldstone walls are a tribute to Maryland’s proud agrarian past. Here you will find gracious accommodation for events, whether it be an intimate reunion or a large gathering.

Our vineyards and state-of-the-art winery are adjacent to the Big Barn, and private guided tours explaining the winemaking process from the fields to the glass can be arranged.
