Wine Tasting in Maryland
Going wine tasting in Maryland is a great activity to do with friends and family especially during the summer and fall. The home of the Black-eye Susie has over 70 vineyards and wineries. There is almost a vineyard in every county in the state. More than likely, there is one near you.
Visiting MD’s vineyards and wineries is wonderful way to experience Maryland’s charm. Before you grab your glass-holder lanyard, Vino 301 Wine Concierge has tips to make your tasting experience more enjoyable.
- Bring food: Maryland wineries do not serve meals. Some offer a cheese plate, crackers, or a snack for an extra fee. Bring a lunch or heavy snacks with you. It is a long day tasting wine with nothing to eat. Most places have indoor and/or outdoor dining areas for you to enjoy your meal and the scenery.
- Ask for the tour: Scheduled tours of the facilities and the vineyard are available. Larger vineyards have scheduled tours you can take; call in advance for the times. Several wineries are family owned, operated businesses. The family members work in the tasting rooms and are happy to answer questions about their wines. In some of the smaller vineyards if the tasting room is not terribly busy they are happy to show you around. In most cases, there is not an additional fee for this peek behind the scenes.
- Use the bucket: You are not going to like everything you sample. Ask for the bucket. Do not be afraid to use the bucket to discard your tasting. The staff will not be offended. Life is too short to drink what you do not like.
