As a lifelong Marylander, I succumbed to our state’s languid charms long ago. You will, too, if you stroll along one of our country roads on a summer evening when the wild roses and honeysuckle vines are blooming in profusion, the tree frogs are in full serenade, and the humid night air caresses your skin. Our landscape is soft and intimate, and it grows upon you so slowly that you scarcely realize that you are falling in love, but inevitably it will steal your heart.As you drive throughout our state, keep on the lookout for wineries and vineyards tucked into the landscape. These are family farms, like mine, that welcome visitors and are proud to share the fruits of their labors. Maryland’s geographic diversity and temperate climate make our state a kind of viticultural playground, where winemakers can experiment with a wide range of grapes and styles of wine.
When you take time to sample our wines, appreciate that you are tasting the sun, the soil, and especially the soul of Maryland.
