Wineries kick off third-annual Maryland Wine Month

BALTIMORE - Members of the Maryland Wineries Association are preparing for a month-long celebration of the state’s flourishing wine industry. Maryland Wine Month begins with events at numerous wineries on Friday, March 1. Several wineries are hosting unique educational events and tastings, while others are working with local restaurants to pair their wines during exclusive wine dinners.

“Maryland Wine Month gives the state's many wineries an opportunity to raise a glass to our industry and our great consumers,” explains Judy Crow of Crow Vineyard & Winery and President of the Maryland Wineries Association.

Maryland Wine Month hopes to celebrate the culture of enthusiasts supporting the wine industry in the Free State. The #WeAreMarylandWine social media challenge engages the savvy wine consumer and encourages them to share photos of their wine experiences. The best submission will receive a pair of brunch passes to Decanter Reimagined, a racing and wine experience at Laurel Park in April, while all of those sharing their images will receive a pair of passes to the general tasting at the event.

Jim Bauckman of the Maryland Wineries Association says, “we hope consumers will share their stories about Maryland wine.”

Retail partners of Maryland’s wineries will also receive promotion through the “Retailer of the Day” campaign. Winery operators and consumers have nominated their favorite wine shops that feature great selections of Maryland wine and support wine education. Those nominated retailers will be announced via Maryland Wineries Association social media platforms.

Full details about Maryland Wine Month events and activities can be found by visiting the Maryland Wineries Association online at or on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.
