A few food and wine events this weekend

wine glassI'd like to draw your attention to a few food and wine events going on this weekend, assuming you haven't already read about them in today's Sun.

The Maryland Wine Festival takes place Saturday and Sunday in Westminster, Jill Rosen reports. The event is "the Super Bowl of wine," according to someone Jill quotes.

The Cape May Food and Wine Festival runs for nine days, Saturday through Sept. 26, Karen Nitkin reports. There is a wide range of events, ranging from a self-guided wine tour to a $125 five-course progressive meal. (A trolley transports diners to a different restaurant for each course.)

I'm really hoping to make it to the Maryland Wine Festival this year, but after looking at the festival website, I do have a thought. Am I the only one who thinks it a bit odd that the participating wineries aren't listed there? The site references a list of food vendors, craft vendors, an entertainment schedule... in other words, pretty much everything EXCEPT the participating wineries.

The Sun article states that "almost all" of the 40 wineries in the state will be in attendance, but I don't really know what to take from that.

Is there some other site one can look at it to find this information?

Never mind. I found it.

While it's a little further south, Civista Medical Center in La Plata is hosting it's annual wine tasting tonight at the historic Port Tobacco Courthouse. I went last year and it was a great event, going again tonight! I'm sure tickets are still available.

I just learned about your event(s) and wanted to tell you
about our site, If you already post to the site -
thank you, we are just trying to make sure you're aware.

It’s free to post your food and wine events to LWE, which has over 119,000
subscribers and 1 million page views per month - and - we'd love to have
them listed!

Please let me know if you have any questions.
