Although I’ve lived in VA for a decade now, and in the Northern VA area for 7 years, I must admit that I’ve never had a wine from Maryland. I’ll attribute that mostly to being lazy – driving 40 minutes to a VA winery seemed much more convenient over the years. Admittedly, the closest MD winery is only an hour from my house, however, there isn’t a cluster of other wineries nearby, so it would be a 2 hour round trip solely for one vineyard.
In any event, I will rectify that this weekend. I will be joining fellow wine and food bloggers, journalists, industry types, and others for the the 5th annual Drink Local Wine Conference. I’ll be heading up today for an early tour day and will be visiting 3 Maryland vineyards to kick off the conference. I look forward to reporting back on the state of Maryland wine and any gems I find in the tasting events.
Cheers, and happy wining!
