WHEN CAROLYN AND Robert Scott wed in 1980, Carolyn presented her bridegroom with 40 grape plant cuttings. Now, in the Scotts' 20th-anniversary year, those cuttings have grown into an 800-plant, 2-acre vineyard on a sloping hill. "I never thought it would grow to the extent it has, but he enjoys it tremendously," Carolyn said of her gift. Dr. Robert Scott, an orthodontist, said his interest in agriculture dates to his days in his family's nursery and to his youth spent in 4-H. When he received the cuttings, he enlisted the help of Hamilton G. Mowbray, a well-known member of the Maryland Grape Growers Association who lives in Silver Run. "He was my mentor," Scott said.
