Nestled on 100 rolling acres in Maryland’s Pleasant Valley, Big Cork Vineyards is on the east side of Elk Ridge, a mountain ridge of the Blue Ridge Mountains in Maryland.

Big Cork Vineyards in Rohrersville, Maryland, about 90 minutes northwest of Washington, DC, will celebrate its grand opening May 30 from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. The event is open to the public.

For the new winery, Oasis Design Group, a landscape architecture, master planning, and urban design firm in Baltimore did the following:

  • Designed the site to showcase Big Cork Vineyards as a premier destination winery in the greater Washington, DC, area;
  • Developed a sense of place and planned for different types of cultural, culinary and entertainment/concert offerings with key views of the picturesque Elk Ridge;
  • Created a site master plan and completed construction documentation and administration for areas associated with the main building, concert area, drop-off area, and two entrances for the vineyard;
  • Planned an entry plaza, a variety of special use areas such as a stage and tent area, eastern tasting patio, summer pavilion patio, pathways, and visitor drop-off garden;
  • Worked with civil engineers, the builder, and the architect on technical, grading, and drainage refinements at the landscape scale and architectural interface issues; and
  • Selected plants, paving materials, site furniture, lighting and other hardscape elements.
