Our Story

Serpent Ridge Vineyard opened in the Spring of 2009 and has received multiple local and international awards. The vineyard and winery was originally founded by Karen and Greg Lambrecht and was adopted by friends and new owners, Hal Roche and Karen Smith in 2013.

We are located in beautiful Carroll County and are proud to be Westminster's first Vineyard and Winery. We specialize in small lots of handmade wine from grapes grown in our vineyard, select Maryland vineyards, and other carefully chosen sites. We continue to carry the tradition of excellent dry wines.

Serpent Ridge consists of a little over two acres of grapes, and this leads to a hands-on approach to wine making. Each vintage is made in small lots, and aged in stainless steel or new age oak. The bottles are sealed with a Zork, an innovative approach to bottle closures. In regards to the debate of art versus science when wine making, “at Serpent Ridge we allow the art of winemaking to be nudged by science if it decides to wander too far from our vision.”
