10 Maryland Wineries to Visit This Fall

If you missed our last blog post, you might not know that there are over 80 wineries here in Maryland! That's a lot of wine to try. Not sure where to get started? We're recommending these ten spots from all over the state, so there's sure to be one near you!

Boordy Vinyards: Hydes

This Baltimore County location has the distinction of being the state's oldest bonded winery! It offers everything from spiced wassail that's perfect for a cold winter's day to the Chesapeake collection that features art of local creatures.

The Wine Collective: Baltimore City

Yep, there's even a winery in the city! This neat spot offers a wide variety of wines, and even a vermouth if you're in the mood to make a cocktail. Join their wine club if you'd like to receive a few bottles on the regular. 

Thanksgiving Farm: Harwood

Fans of dry reds will love the offerings at Thaksgiving Farm, but don't worry -- sweet and dry whites are also available! You can even pick up a small tasting pack of six wines to ensure you've tried them all.

Deep Creek Cellars: Friendsville

Why not pick up some local wine during your Deep Creek vacation? You can grab a fruity 'Ursa Major' or 'Blue Dolce' along with your favorite cabernets and pinot blancs. This cool spot will even let you do a tasting in your car! 

Bordeleau Wines, Eden

If you're headed to Ocean City, you can stop by this gorgeous winery that's not far from Salisbury! This spot has a huge variety of dry wines, sweet fruit wines, and off-drys. While the tours have been postponed due to COVID-19, you can still try out the wines in the tasting room.

Xella Winery and Vineyard: Mechanicsville

This Southern Maryland location has an unusual name with a sweet story -- each letter is the first initial of the immediate family who owns the winery! You can also find sweet wines, as well as dry reds and whites, and rose wine. 

Layton's Chance: Vienna

Another family-owned winery, this Eastern shore spot is perfect for lovers of fruit wines! You can try strawberry, watermelon, and even lime wines here! Of course, all of the classics like red blends and vidal blancs can be found here too.

Black Ankle Vineyards: Mt. Airy

How'd this place get its name? The owners set up shop on Black Ankle Road, which may have been named after the muddy dirt trail that it was for many years. No matter where it came from, you're sure to have a taste of something great at this central MD vineyard! 

Red Heifer Winery: Smithsburg

Want to enjoy a breezy day with wine and food? Head west, and stop at this winery, which offers reds and whites as well as port, semi-sweets, and even premium wine selections. Bring your own picnic or pick up a tasty charcuterie board or salad on site. 

Crow Vineyard: Kennedyville

Wish you didn't have to leave your favorite winery? This location is also a B&B! Vaccinated guests can enjoy a stay here after sipping cabernets, malbecs, and much more. Talk about best of both worlds!
