Janemark Winery and Vineyard is located in Southern Prince George’s County, a 45-minute drive south of our nation’s capital. The owners, Jane and Mark, wanted to bring their love of Napa Valley wine country to the east coast and planted Janemark’s first grapevines in 2013. Committed to sustainability, Janemark has successfully transformed fields that once grew tobacco into fields that produce some of the best grapes and wines that Maryland has to offer along with transforming an old tobacco barn dating back to the 1930s into a one of a kind wine tasting experience.

We are so excited to welcome visitors back to Janemark Winery! Below please find our policies and procedures we are instituting to ensure the health and safety of our team members and guests.
We are offering outside seating only at this time. Upon arrival please check in with the host and a JWV team member will show you to a table. If a team member is seating another party, please be patient and wait for the team member to return and they will show you to your table. Please do not seat yourself. All seating has been arranged to ensure adequate social distancing and we ask that guests refrain from moving any tables or chairs. Once a team member has shown you to your table you may not move to another table.
Reservations are not required, it is first come, first served. Please note we are unable to accept groups of more than six guests per table, including children.
You may purchase wine tasting kits, bottles, wine by the glass, slushies, sangria by the glass or pitcher, cheese and charcuterie boards.
Janemark team members will provide table side service if you are seated at one of our tables. If our seating is full and you choose to sit in your own chairs on the lawn you will use our outside wine bar for all purchases. Please be sure to check in upon arrival as we are limited to how many patrons may be on the property.
We will use plastic cups for all wine consumption. You may choose to purchase a wine glass or bring your own.
Pop up tents are not allowed. You may not bring your own table.
We are unable to accommodate tour buses or groups larger than six during regular hours.
No outside alcohol is permitted per State law.
For the comfort of all our guests we do not allow smoking on our farm.
Face Masks and Social Distancing
Face masks must be worn at all times on the property unless seated at your table. We ask that you be mindful to stay six feet away from other guests not in your party. We will monitor behavior and we reserve the right to refuse service to anyone not following these safety guidelines.
Health & Sanitation
Our staff will be wearing face coverings to keep you safe and we ask you to wear your face covering while interacting with our staff or away from your table. While walking around the lawn and patio please stay six feet away from other guests to practice social distancing. Additionally, we have instituted heightened disinfection and cleaning of our restrooms, points of sale, and common touch points, in accordance with CDC guidelines. All tables and chairs will be cleaned and sanitized before guests’ arrival. You will also notice two hand washing stations and hand sanitizer stations for your convenience. All staff will have temperature check before every shift. If you are not feeling well, have Covid-19 or have been around anyone with Covid-19 we ask that you not visit the winery.
Pets & Children
We do still invite you to bring along your pets (must be on a leash) and children, if space is available. Now more than ever, it will be important to ensure your entire family is being mindful of the space of others, with care taken not to encroach on the social distance spacing of others.
Inclement Weather / Cooler Temperatures
If we have inclement weather you may stay under our covered porch, however, if we have blowing rain you will be asked to seek shelter in your car as we cannot provide shelter in our Tasting Barn.
As we move into fall and winter the temperature will be noticeably cooler and we ask you to dress appropriately and enjoy the fresh air. We have patio heaters on the covered porch and fire pits on the lawn (if we experience high wind we may not be able to turn on the fire pits or patio heaters). We ask you to bring along blankets, coats, hats, or whatever else is needed to stay warm and join us as you create great memories while sitting outside enjoying a glass of wine or mulled wine (our hot wine with flavors of cinnamon and cloves). While this year has been a challenge in many ways it also provides us with many opportunities to create lasting memories.
Thank You for Your Patience!
As we learn how to run our winery with these new protocols in place, we thank you in advance for your patience.
Estate Grown Wines
The majority of our wines are estate grown from our Foxes Den Vineyard and Four Degrees Vineyard. Janemark Winery & Vineyard is proud to produce Maryland-grown wines from our family’s generations old property.
Farm Dating Back to 1877
The Townshend-Vogt family farm was acquired by co-owner, Jane’s, great-great-grandfather in 1877. Originally used as a tobacco farm for 93 years, the land now cultivates some of Maryland’s finest grapes to enrich our delicious wines.
