Legislation Proposed to Support Vineyards/Wineries in Maryland County

Howard County, Maryland is pressing forward to make the county winery friendly. Today the county executive, Ken Ulman, is announcing that he will introduce legislation that will enable property owners to have vineyards as well as to open wineries in the county.

The announcement at Tin Lizzie Wineworks in Clarksville, Maryland will include a tour of the recently planted vineyard at Tin Lizzie as well as a quick course on producing wine.

Such legislation will be beneficial to Howard County where there has been a large influx of new homes and businesses. There has always been concern especially in the western part of the county to preserve the land. What better way to preserve farmland than by planting vineyards that can potentially continue for 80 to 100 years!

Remember the Wine in the Woods festival takes place in Columbia, Maryland only minutes from Tin Lizzie Wineworks, this weekend. Festivalgoers will have the opportunity to taste numerous wines produced throughout Maryland. Of course there will be music, food and arts/crafts to enjoy.

Cheers! Kathy
