Most recently, Vino 301 staff attended the Wine in the Woods festival on May 17, 2015. The Wine in the Woods festival was held on May 16 and 17 on a beautiful sunny day in Columbia, MD . The upbeat atmosphere and music allowed for the diverse crowd to enjoy each other’s company, a day well spent sipping on wine and mingling with one another. The park was packed with all sorts of wine lovers, from novice to grand tasters. Wine in the Woods is the unofficial kick off of the Maryland Wine Festival Season. If you have been hibernating all wine along, this is your chance to taste what is new in Maryland .
Here are a wineries and wines that caught our attention.
Red Heifer Company
If you prefer sweeter wines than Red Heifer is the place for you. This winery in Smithsburg, MD specializes in making sweet wines. Although they have only been in operation for a little less than three years, their wines attracted a large crowd.
Bordeleau Winery is located right outside the eastern shore between Salisbury and Princess Anne. The owner, Tom Shelton, shared with us how he has recently moved away from making vintage wines because he found difficulty with keeping the flavors consistent. Since he has moved away from making vintage wines, Tom says the quality and consistency of his wines has improved.
Orchid Cellar Winery
Located in Middletown, the Orchid Cellar Winery manufactures unique honey based wines. Their honey based wine creates a thick, sweet, and rich flavor that is loved by all. The honey cinnamon wine was a big hit at Wine in the Woods this past weekend. People flocked to Orchid Cellars tasting post because of the distinctive flavors they offer.
Wine In the Woods was a great start to a summer filled with great wine festivals. We look forward to another summer of delicious wine, tasty food and good music you will find at the festivals.
