Just because the holidays are over doesn’t mean the fun has to end!  Stave off the winter blues and attend the inaugural  Winter  Wine  at  Evergreen  event  on Thursday, January  10th,  2013,  from 7  to  10  p.m.  at  the  Evergreen  Museum  &  Library’s  Carriage  House.   Sample  over  25  Maryland  wines, all of which have  earned  top  awards  or  are  special  selections  of  tasting  curators  Al  Spoler  and  Hugh  Sisson  of  WYPR’s  Cellar  Notes.    In keeping with the made-in-Maryland theme,   Baltimore  caterer  Chef’s  Expressions  will  serve  passed  hors  d’oeuvres  featuring  locally-sourced  Maryland  ingredients.  

For  an  an even loftier experience,  enjoy  the  state’s  best  sparkling  wines, too,   from  6  – 7  p.m.  in  the  beautiful, historic Evergreen  Museum  &  Library.  The  museum  features  Asian   arts,  European  paintings — including  works  by  Degas,  Modigliani,  and  Zuloaga —  American  art  glass — the  majority  of  pieces  assigned  to  Louis  Comfort  Tiffany — and   the  John  Work  Garrett  Library  of  rare  books  and  manuscripts.  Paintings  by  Pablo   Picasso  and  Raoul  Dufy  also  grace  the  halls  of  the  lovely mansion, once the home of the Garrett family, set on 26 landscaped acres in North Baltimore and on the National Register of Historic Places.

And there’s more: Musicians  from  the  Peabody  Institute  will  perform  throughout  the  evening and  winemakers  will  be  on  hand  to  answer  your  questions.  All  wines   will  be  available  to  purchase  by  the  glass,  bottle,  or  case.  Buy raffle  tickets, too, to win “A  Year  of  Dining”  –  a  collection  of, at least, twelve  $100  gift  certificates  to  great  Maryland  restaurants.  The  raffle  will   benefit  AIWF  Days  of  Taste®,  a  group  that  bring  chefs  and  farmers  into  fourth  and   fifth  grade  classrooms  to  teach  students  about  the  importance  of   fresh  food  and  how  ingredients  weave  their  way  through  daily  life,  from  farm  to   table.     Tickets  can  be  purchased  at www.marylandwine.org/wwe/ for  $65  and  $80.  For   more  information visit the wine association website or call (410) 252-9463.
