Visit seven wineries this weekend and get a taste of wine and other local products. There’s no charge to visit the wineries, though they may charge for tastings.
—Basignani Winery will feature local beef and bison from Gunpowder Bison and Roseda Beef.
—Boordy Vineyards: Paola’s arugula sun-dried tomato and basil pestos paired with wines.
—DeJon Vineyards: handmade Native American jewelry and pottery.
—Fiore Winery & Distillery: samples from Hawks Hill Creamery to pair with Fiore wines.
—Harford Vineyard & Winery: samples of gourmet baked goods by Kathy Fiedler, owner of Kathy’s Sugar & Spice. (Mention the Piedmont Wine Trail and taste the first estate Merlot wine, soon to be bottled.)
—Mount Felix Estate Vineyard & Winery: cheese and fruit plates by MacGregor's Restaurant in Havre de Grace.
—Woodhall Wine Cellars will feature Simmer Rock CSA, which operates out of Springfield Farm, an organic farm specializing in poultry, eggs, and various meats; samples made with Springfield products by Patricia Della Casual Fine Dining; comparisons of freshly harvested and supermarket vegetables; and free samplings of Woodhall’s Vintner’s Prestige wines (with a mention of the Piedmont Wine Trail).
It’s never to early to plan your weekend. Somehow, it makes getting through Monday so much better.
