Philip Wagner of Boordy Nursery congratulates Tony Debevc on his success and the press received from Wine East magazine. Wagner also reflects on the family's decision to stop propagating vines after 50 years of serving the industry.
Philip and Jocelyn Wagner founded Boordy Vineyards, Maryland’s best known winery and grape nursery, in Baltimore City in 1935. They sold the name and the equipment in 1980 to the Deford family but kept the nursery for many years to provide hybrids to growers nationwide.
