Maryland wine events

boodyOK, I just got off the phone with wine. Wine wasn't angry, but wine did wonder why I was posting so much about beer and had not so much as mentioned wine. Wine simply suggested that Marylanders should advantage of the crisp, let's-drink-wine-outside weather and check out on of the upcoming events and festivals showcasing the Maryland wine industry.


This weekend's big event, the Maryland Autumn Wine Festival, takes place this Saturday and Sunday at Pemberton Historical Park in Salisbury. The eighth annual festival features wine tastings, wine by the glass, and full bottles available for purchase from Maryland wineries, including Boordy Vineyards (Hydes) and Penn Oaks (Silver Spring).

Also this weekend, at Berrywine Plantations in Mt. Airy, Linganore Winecellars wraps up its 2010 festival calendar with a two-day Reggae Festival. More information on the winery's web site.

Boordy's own Autumn Wine Fest continues over the last three Sundays in October with live music, vineyard wagon rides, alpacas, dancing, gourmet foods, winery tours, and crafters. On the menu - bratwurst and sauerkraut.

Oh yes, the poor wineries. They never get the respect that breweries always seem to get in the wide world of culinaria.

that's just what I told wine

Also, to add a wine event: Dionysus is having a 6 course dinner/wine pairing this Wed Oct 20th. Tickets are limited, but still available (only $50 per person). Hope to see some familiar faces.

thanks, JH

Shill! Ha ha, just kidding. Hey James.

Could the attention you are giving to Maryland Beer be because much of it is world class beer and Maryland Wine is mediocre at best?

Don't forget about the Federal Hill Wine Festival on Sunday as well!

Noon-7pm. 20 booths, 100 wines stretched out of the North Side of Cross Street and S.Charles
