During our first actual trip hours from home we were able to spend part of the day at Linganore Winecellars located in Mount Airy, Maryland. We have had their wine wine before at local wine festivals but their vineyard in person is worth seeing! They are the oldest winery in Maryland since 1972. Again their wines are on the sweeter side for me but the operation of handling the many visitors there on a rainy Saturday was very interesting to see from an organized mind. You can choose to taste the dryer or the sweeter wines which shows their is a wide range of varietals they have. I of course chose the dryer wines while J.R. chose the sweeter wines but we both tried a little of each others. We agreed on liking the Retriever Red which is their popular red blend to take home with us. They allow people to bring in their own food as well while enjoying their wines. We did pack a picnic but decided to enjoy our pickings at their Brewery just a few steps away. Click on the Craft Beer menu option to read about their onsite brewery.
