On Saturday, June 15, from noon to 6 p.m., the Eat•Drink•Go LOCAL Food and Wine Festival acquaints foodies and oenophiles with area farmers, chefs, and vintners. The outdoor, farmers'-market-style event brims with local produce, handmade crafts, and local wines, all to the sound of live music. Admission includes a stemless sampling glass, which tasters use to savor varietals from dozens of Maryland wineries.
Maryland Wine curates the abundant spread of wineries and vineyards that dot the state’s landscape, keeping tabs on the more than 400 wines they produce.
