Tasting Tours in Maryland: Winery, Craft Brewery & Distillery Adventure
Vino 301 hosted its first Wine, Beer & Spirits Tour this weekend. It was perfect. It was a beautiful fall Saturday, awesome guests and tasty beverages. The tasting tours in Maryland began with a wine tasting at Linganore Winecellars. The wine lovers could select from dry, sweet, or a combination of both wines. Linganore has a sizable wine selection.
Our guests moved next door to Red Shedman craft brewery. Each guest selected six beers from the tasting menu and received a generous beer flight. If you are going to enjoy the wine and beer tasting, we encourage you bring food to snack on or purchase food from the brewery. Vino 301 provided our guests with cheese and fruit plates and charcuterie plates. The brewery offers food for purchase such as pizza, chips and salsa, and hot dogs.
The adventure continued to Springfield Manor Winery and Distillery. We were greeted by rousing music played by the live band. Springfield Manor has breathtaking views of the Catoctin Mountains. Initially our guests were intimidated by Springfield Manor’s spirits selection. Brandy, Grappa, Whiskey, Rum, and Vodka are the distilled spirits available to tasting. The warm and friendly staff offers a thorough introduction of their spirits. Our guests are offered a tasting of three spirits. Some of guests opted to participate in the wine tasting instead. Springfield Manor is also a lavender farm. Some of their wines and spirits are infused with lavender. The tour ended with dancing and sipping wine and spirits on the patio.
Do not worry if you missed the fun the wine, beer & spirits tour is offered every month. Until next month, check out our video of the tour.
