Costa Ventosa winery opens in Worcester County
A new winery opens on the Eastern Shore this week.
Costa Ventosa Winery, which describes itself as a "fun-spirited winery," opens Friday in Whaleyville in Worcester County.
The winery will offer seven wines this year: a Chardonnay, Gewürztraminer, Merlot, Rose of Merlot, Vidal blanc and two red blends.
Starting this week, the winery will be open Fridays through Sundays, noon to 6 p.m.
This Friday, there will be a ribbon cutting and toast at 2 p.m. The grand opening that day also features catering by Wolfgang Puck (presumably provided by Puck's Washington restaurant, not served up by the celebrity chef himself, though the winery rep I reached just now wasn't sure).
Update: Just heard back from the winery on the subject of Wolfgang Puck.
"The Wolfgang Puck in the website invitation was a mistake. That restaurant will not be catering the event."
Visitors are encouraged to check the winery's website for updates to the hours or to call before visiting.
The winery is at 9031 Whaleyville Road.Sun file photo
