Vineyard Haven

These Maryland wineries are worth a visit

Linganore Winecellars

Linganore Winecellars is a happening place. The tasting room is spacious, the facilities are modern, and tastings are inexpensive and comprehensive. Linganore has even added a craft brewery, Red Shedman, adjacent to the winery.

Linganore may make more fruit-based wines than anyone in the state. The winery encompasses more than 200 acres in Frederick County, grows all the grapes it uses, and obtains all its fruit from local vendors. Of the 34 wines offered, more than 20 are designated as sweet or fruit wines.

Highlights: The Aperture chambourcin was a nice version of the varietal, and the petit verdot was fruit forward albeit a bit thin on the midpalate. The chambourcin blend of its Retriever Red was slightly sweet, heavy and showed some of the ubiquitous foxy flavors of the grape, finishing with scents of fresh cheese.

Prices: Tastings are $8 or $10; bottles range from $15 to $50.

Food: Cheese and cracker plates, and blocks of cheese are available.

Extras: Live music every Thursday to Sunday, from April to mid-October. There are often food trucks, and there’s an extensive list of special events, such as wine release parties and special dinners.

13601 Glissans Mill Road, Mount Airy; 301-831-5889; linganorewines.com
