Deciding what wineries to visit and planning an itinerary can be time consuming. Two-day itineraries that feature wineries, maps and lodging options are available on the Wine Trail Traveler website. In celebration of Drink Local Wine week, we are focusing our attention on Maryland and Virginia. These itineraries focus on several interstates. In Maryland the itineraries are based on wineries along Interstate 70, Interstate 83 and Interstate 95. Four itineraries are available for Virginia. Three are based on areas of Interstate 66 and Charlottesville South. Interstate 66 was divided into East, Central and West.
These itineraries are suggestions and flexible. Maryland and Virginia wineries are great places to explore the world of wine including the terroir that each region offers.
As you explore the wineries in Maryland and Virginia, take notes on what differences you discover with the same varietal. Try to determine what influenced the different styles. Was it the winemaker or the terroir?
Most of all enjoy your visit to these friendly wineries.
