Find tools below to assist in the evaluation of site suitability for starting vineyards anywhere in Maryland.
The files contain general and specific information as well as maps for climate, geology, slope, aspect, elevation, soil classification, and land-use classification. The individual site features were then “layered” or combined to produce a composite “Viticulture Suitability Ranking" image.
There is a file for getting a view of the whole state and files for individual counties. For each county there is a PowerPoint type file that is meant for viewing on the web and a word type document that is better suited for printing and viewing at your leisure. Washington County is the prototype map that is now available and others will be appearing shortly.
We hope you find them helpful. Feedback is always requested.
