Welcome to the Whistle Stop Winery!

Located in beautiful Calvert County in the city of Dunkirk, Maryland; the winery is centrally located in the heart of the Western Shore of the Chesapeake Watershed. Founded by Vintner Jarl Weyant, the winery was named after his passion for both trains as a young man as well as his interest in vinification (winemaking).

For years Jarl pursued his winemaking as a hobby until 2015 when he decided to turn his hobby into a business; a business that he could be passionate about.

Winemaking at Whistle Stop Winery starts with a selection of the grapes and other fruits to create unique, exquisite and well-balanced wines for any occasion. Tasters will be able to take in the aromas and flavors from Central Maryland that are unique to this area.

Winemaking can be divided into two general categories: still wine production (without carbonation) and sparkling wine production (with carbonation — natural or injected). Whistle Stop Winery is currently in production of wines without carbonation and two of our favorites are Tender Peach Wine and Coal Car Cranberry Wine.
