“Let us celebrate the occassion with wine and sweet words.” ~ Plautus

Along with blooming flowers and warmer weather, Spring also ushers in a variety of fun events such as wine festivals.  

Now that you’ve learned all about Maryland wine, it’s time to get out and taste some!

One of my favorite ways to discover delicious new wines is to go a wine festival.  I think they are so much fun!  I can’t wait to go to a few this year. 

Never been to a wine festival?  Boy, are you in for a treat!

Most of the time, the cost of admission will get you a free wine glass to use for unlimited tastings from the participating wineries (unless you’re a designated driver).

In addition to being able to taste a variety of amazing local wines…

…you’ll also be able to:

Grab a bite to eat at one of the featured restaurants or food trucks

Check out the beautiful art, jewelry, and more offered by vendors

Enjoy live entertainment

Maybe even have your (or your child’s) face painted 😉

MARYLAND WINE FESTIVALS:
WHAT TO KNOW BEFORE YOU GO

  • First and foremost, please do NOT drink and drive!  Either arrange for a designated driver or call a cab or rideshare company.  It’s much cheaper than a DUI – and safer!

$5 off of each of your 1st 2 Uber rides.

  • Save money on the cost of admission by checking discount sites such as Groupon for reduced-price tickets.  
  • Most festivals offer discounts for designated drivers as well as active military service members. Check the event website for information.
  • If you want to save money on food, bring your own.  Unless otherwise stated, festivals allow outside food.  (An added benefit is you won’t have to wait in long lines. Win-win!)
  • Make a day of it! Bring your own lawn chair(s) and/or blanket(s) so you can sip your wine and savor the day in comfort.
  • Have fun!
