Guide to Maryland Wineries

Updated on April 15, 2018

Enjoy Maryland Wine

Maryland has been home to growing grapes and wine making since Colonial days but the wine industry has really taken off here since the early 1980s. Today there are over 20 wineries in Maryland with several more planned. Many of these wineries are family owned and operated.

Maryland's terrain, climate and proximity to the coast enable vineyards to grow a variety of grapes with most wineries producing several varietals and blends. No matter what your taste, you should be able to easily find a Maryland wine you will enjoy.

Spring is a great time to visit a Maryland winery and enjoy a tasting. Some wineries may be hosting special events and tastings as they unveil their new releases. Check the winery websites below for details. Wineries are organized by county.

Great wines, good times!

Party at a Maryland winery!

Most Maryland wineries host special events including live music and wine appreciation events throughout the year. Many are also available to host your own special event such as a wedding reception or anniversary party.

Check each winery's website for event details and contact info.

      The best time to see what Maryland wine has to offer is through the Maryland Wine Festival. It is the best time to kick off your shoes, sit back, and relax because of the party atmosphere provided by live music and most importantly, the free taste!!! And rain or shine, the party pushes through because the festival is held whatever the weather condition

      In Maryland, one can indulge with over 300 wine choices so there’s sure to be one perfect for your taste and budget. The experience is made even more memorable with a visit to the winemakers to see first hand how our favorite wines are made from scratch all the way to packaging. The scenic beauty of Maryland provides the perfect background for this unbelievable experience

      Hello fellow Marylander,

      your Maryland wineries lens will compliment my Gunpowder Falls State Park lens nicely. Lens rolled and 5*****. Happy trails!

      Some of the wineries on the Maxon Dixon Wine Trail are actually in southern Pennsylvania. I'd suggest you check out Four Springs Winery and Seven Valleys Winery both right near the PA/MD border on route 83. I've also been to Woodhall Vineyards in Maryland and had a very good time.
