What could be better than to have a bottle of wine gracing your Thanksgiving Day table with a label “Thanksgiving Farm?” Maryland residents are lucky to have a winery named Thanksgiving Farm. The winery is located in Harwood in Anne Arundel County and not far from the District of Columbia.
Visitors to the winery will discover a warm welcome, elegant tasting room and a sparkling white winery. This boutique winery is small but has a small elegant tasting room. Relatively new on the scene Thanksgiving Farm winery is only open on Sundays from 1pm – 5pm.
The owners are producing serious wines. Current wines include Meritage, Farmhouse Red, Dry Rose and a Franc Blanc. All wines are produced from the onsite vineyard.
This Sunday stop by to purchase to taste the Thanksgiving Farm wines and decide what you would like to serve for Thanksgiving.
We were fortunate to be able to purchase about four gallons of Cabernet Sauvignon juice that had not set on the skins. At the moment the juice is quietly fermenting and we plan to bottle it before the Drink Local Conference in 2013.
White wines made from Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc are unusual and unique. When you are out and traveling about look for these special wines.
