Maryland Wine Passport Experience
Mar 1 @ 12:00 pm – 5:00 pm

February 21-22 and February 28-March 1.  This winter, grab a map, gas up the car and set out onto the wine trails to explore the state’s rich culture, museums, attractions and history while learning more about the wines that represents each region. The Maryland Wineries Association, in partnership with local wineries and wine trails, presents Maryland Wine Passport Experience, a series of events taking place on each of Maryland’s six unique wine trails over two weekends.

In addition to the wine tastings, the Maryland Wine Passport Experience Pass will include exclusive access to all of the participating wineries on any of the six Maryland wine trails, “behind-the-scene” experiences at each winery, a commemorative wine glass, 10% off wine purchased during the two weekends and discounts at participating attractions, hotels, restaurants and shopping centers.

The Maryland Wine Passport Experience includes the Carroll Wine Trail (Carroll County).  The Carroll Wine Trail is a place of both historic and contemporary tradition. Home to Maryland’s oldest wine festival, visitors have been traveling to this region for years to taste the fruits of the harvest and to enjoy life––glass in hand! Each winery along the trail possesses a distinctive charm and character as well as delicious hand-crafted wines. Visitors to the trail can learn about both new and age old wine making traditions, while also meeting some of the winemakers and farmers. Wineries include Cygnus Wine Cellars and Serpent Ridge Vineyards.

The Maryland Wine Passport Experience also includes the Antietam Highlands Wine Trail (Frederick and Washington Counties); Chesapeake Wine Trail (Eastern Shore: Cecil, Kent, Queen Anne’s, Talbot, Dorchester and Wicomico); Frederick Wine Trail & other neighboring wineries (Frederick and Montgomery Counties); Patuxent Wine Trail (Southern Maryland; Anne Arundel, Calvert, Prince George’s and St. Mary’s Counties); and Piedmont Wine Trail (Harford and Baltimore Counties).
