Costa Ventosa Winery and Vineyard

Throughout the year we will be profiling the characters behind the wines and ales you buy. Their stories provide great insight into the bright future of Delmarva’s wine and beer industry.

Costa Ventosa is a casual, fun winery located on 10 acres of vineyards and farmland in Whaleyville, MD, just 10 minutes from Ocean City and Berlin. In Italian, “Costa Ventosa” means “Windy Coast.” Take a tour of the wine production area, gaze out over the 4-acre vineyard, or sit on the front porch with a glass of wine and meet the owners Kathy and Jack Lord. She’s the winemaker and he’s the dirt guy or vineyard keeper. Whatever their tasks, they are one dynamic duo!

Costa Ventosa will be celebrating their 2nd birthday this summer with a party on Saturday, July 14th at 2pm.

They offer winery tours, a gift shop and free wine tastings. “Wine Down” every Friday between 6-8pm with live music, complimentary finger food and discounted wines by the glass.

The Maryland Winemasters’ Choice Awards, held each year to find the best wines in Maryland, were recently handed out. Costa Ventosa did supremely well!
