Layton's Chance Vineyard And Winery

4225 New Bridge Road
Vienna, MD 21869


Hours: Year Round


The Layton family has been a presence in Dorchester County agriculture since Joseph H. Layton, Sr. bought the original farm in 1948. In the mid-70s the next generation Joseph H. Layton Jr. and his wife Laura, continued to add to their holdings by purchasing Lazy Day Farms and turning it into a successful grain operation. It would be another Layton, returning to heed the call of succession however, to bring the idea of Layton's Chance Winery and Vineyard to fruition.

"I never thought William would come back to the farm." Laura Layton says, but on the same day that he and Jennifer called to tell her that she and Joe were going to be grandparents, he announced his intentions to do just that. So, in 2003 after years of living all over the United States and with a newborn in tow, William and Jennifer arrived and began their new adventure on William's old 'stomping' grounds.
