Great Frogs Winery, located on the picturesque Broadneck Peninsula in Annapolis, Maryland, is not only renowned for its exceptional wines but also serves as an idyllic backdrop for portrait photography and small private events. Founded in 2004 by Mark and Amy Raab, this charming vineyard and winery has become a beloved destination for locals and visitors alike.

Steeped in history, Great Frogs Winery occupies 25 acres of stunning land that has been carefully cultivated for wine production. With its rolling vineyards, the winery produces a range of exquisite wines, including Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Sauvignon Blanc, and Riesling. This commitment to quality has earned Great Frogs Winery numerous accolades, including the prestigious Governor’s Cup at the Maryland Wine Competition.

While the winery’s primary focus is farming, it welcomes the public for tours and tastings. Photography is permitted during tasting hours, allowing visitors to capture the beauty of the winery’s surroundings. The tasting room, barn, and vineyard provide enchanting settings for portrait photography, combining rustic charm with natural splendor. The carefully restored barn, which serves as the winery’s tasting room, offers a uniquely picturesque ambiance for small private events.

One of the standout features of Great Frogs Winery is its beautifully apportioned outdoor patio. Overlooking the vineyards, this area provides a serene space for guests to relax, savor the winery’s wines, and admire the breathtaking views. In the evenings, thousands of string lights illuminate the patio, creating a romantic atmosphere that adds to the allure of any event.

For those planning small private events, Great Frogs Winery offers a range of options. Although weddings and receptions are not permitted due to permit allowances, the winery can accommodate bridal showers, rehearsal dinners, birthday parties, and corporate meetings, among others. These events often feature food trucks, adding a fun and eclectic touch to the festivities. The winery’s attention to detail extends to its logo, which features a frog perched on a grapevine, and an iconic vintage truck that can be incorporated into portraits, offering a unique and memorable touch.

However, it’s important to note that there are limitations when it comes to photography at Great Frogs Winery. As a working farm, access to certain areas, such as production areas and the woods, is strictly prohibited. Visitors are kindly asked to respect these boundaries while capturing their portraits.

Despite these limitations, the scenic beauty of Great Frogs Winery more than compensates. The combination of rustic wood barn architecture, impeccably maintained garden beds, and pristine modern stonework provides a diverse range of backdrops for stunning photographs. Whether against the backdrop of the vineyard, the vintage truck, or the enchanting patio, visitors are guaranteed a wealth of captivating images.

Location Limitations:

Photography is permitted only during tasting hours. Production areas as well as the woods nearby are strictly off-limits to guests. Visitors interested in having portraits taken at this location are strongly encouraged to reach out to the venue beforehand to confirm the tasting schedule and get the go-ahead to come take pictures at that time.
