Explore What’s Happening in Local Wine

Super high quality wine is being grown throughout the state. Styles encompass all palate preferences, from deep Bordeaux and Italian reds to spritely Albariños and Grüner Veltliners, and from sweet reds to fruit wines, ciders and meads.

Come to Explore

Where else can you go deep and figure out if you like oaky or stainless-steel fermented Chardonnays or explore Cabernet Franc, Barbera or Petit Verdot? The Maryland Wine Festival is your place.

Come to Purchase

Many of the wines are still hard to find, available only at the wineries or to their wine club members. The festival in ideal place to stock up on new favorites…you might never see them again!
