Festival runs from noon until 6 p.m. on June 23. Each pass includes a wine tasting glass for sampling any of the 24–30 Maryland wines present, including wines from Sugarloaf Mountain Winery, Woodhall Winery, and Solomon's Island Winery. Each pass also includes a goodie bag, entry to a raffle for a winery tour for four, three wine accompaniments–cheeses, olives, and crudités; and two 3–5 oz. tapas pairings for $3 (normal prices average between $5 and $7).
Tapas pairings come from local caterers and enable visitors to sample multiple dishes with wine pairings, and a variety of other vendors will also be present. In addition, The StyleMasters, Alleghany St, and jazz saxophonist Merlon Devine will perform live at the festival.
Milk Lady Markets
Gigi Goin is the driving force behind the network of fresh produce markets and food festivals that live under the Milk Lady Markets umbrella. Born in Trinidad, Gigi grew up around an abundance of produce markets, farms, and home gardens. It instilled in her a lifelong appreciation for farmers and the need for consumers to be closely connected to food producers. And in 2010, her love of fresh, healthy food—Gigi was a vegan for 12 years and is now a pescetarian—spurred her to create Milk Lady Markets, which comprises multiple producer-only farmers' markets throughout Montgomery County. The organization also oversees festivals throughout the year, including the annual Strawberry Festival in late spring.
