Winter into Spring Wine Events

After a long, cold winter when will bud break occur?

After a long, cold winter when will bud break occur?

Celebrate the approach of spring by visiting wineries with special events during March. For instance, on March weekends the Mason-Dixon Wine Trail (with wineries in Maryland and Pennsylvania) offers the annual Tour de Tanks.

Farther to the south in Virginia, Pearmund Cellars is offering  Spring Barrel Wine Tastings which also take place on weekends. In addition to tasting wine from barrels and learning about wine, participants will learn about wine and food pairings. Wine tastings will be accompanied by gourmet light foods. Pearmund Cellars is easy to reach from Baltimore and Washington.

Looking Forward to the 5th Annual DECANTER Wine & Racing Festival in April

Now is also the time to make plans for April 18 and 19. This is the day for celebrating Maryland horse racing and wine. Twenty-one wineries from Maryland will be at the Pimlico Race Course to  celebrate.

General Admission is $30 and the Decanter Pass is $50. The general admission pass includes a tasting glass, unlimited sampling and admission to the races. The Decanter Pass at $50 includes a large tasting glass, limited sampling, admission to races, wine carrier and exclusive samples of each winery’s “Decanter Wine.” Designated driver tickets are $20.Tickets are available online. In addition to all of the above, look for local foods, artisans and music.

Enjoy spring time by visiting wineries! While enjoying time in the tasting rooms checkout the vineyards for signs of bud break.
