Laytons | Dorchester County EDA

Long-time agricultural leaders in Delmarva, Dorchester’s farms produce numerous crops including corn, soybean and melons. The Layton family added a new crop in 2007 when they planned and propagated grapevines on their Vienna-based farm to create the county’s first winery. Adding this new crop to their farm produced delicious wines and created an ‘agri-tourism’ business with festivals, concerts, and private events in the beautiful tasting room. The family-friendly destination attracts tens of thousands of people each year. Visit to learn more about Layton’s Chance Vineyard and Winery.
