Look out for the Demonstrations

The Wine Education Seminars explains the sensory aspects of wine.  The subject of wine and health is also addressed.  These seminars are held every hour, on the hour, from Noon to 3 p.m. on Saturday, and 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. on Sunday.  (located in the Reception Barn)

Located in our inner circle, stop by the Maryland Grape Growers Association booth. Learn about techniques and steps in processing the grapes to make some of Maryland’s finest wines starting with fresh grapes and proceeding through crushing, pressing, and fermentation.

  1. Lovin’ MD Wines! Such an exciting time as we are entering the international market, and coming away with awards for body & flavor. Boordy is almost finished with their expansion, and the number of successful wineries in the state has trippeled in the last decade, Everyone who loves wine should be supporting our local vinters!

  2. I’d love the tickets because Maryland wineries rule and yummy yummy yummy i want MD wine in my tummy. support local vinters~

    1. Betsy! You’re the winner of this week’s drawing! Tickets will be at the admissions booth under your name. You’ll just need to show your ID. One more drawing next week friends! Please keep the comments coming! I’m loving the name drops on wines I’ve never heard of.

  3. My fiancée and I would love to go to the MD Wine Festival. She is from Carroll County, so it’d be a nice homecoming for her. My favorite MD winery is Running Hare. I love their Malbec. Very peppery, don’t find too many wineries in the area willing to try Malbec’s.

  4. My favorite Maryland wine is from St. Michael’s Winery…anything in their Gollywobbler line is delicious! My husband, who is not a wine drinker, loves it too! I’ve never attended a wine festival in all my 50 years, so *Golly*, I hope I win tickets to the festival! 🙂

  5. My husband and I would love the chance to unwind without the kiddos. My favorite MD wine to date is Linganore Steeple Chase, but I’d love to add some new favorites to the list!

  6. I would love tickets to MD Wine Festival because I enjoy discovering new wines and love going to festivals! One of my favorite MD wines is Lingnore Wineries “steeple chase” wine.
