Listening to jazz and drinking wine have become some of man's top recreational activities, just after contemplating infinity and napping in the fridge. Let smooth saxophones entertain you with this Groupon.
Choose Between Two Options
- $25 for an Autumn Festival day for two with a bottle of sangria and a monogrammed wine glass for each guest (a $52 value)
- $45 for an Autumn Festival day for four with two bottles of sangria and a monogrammed wine glass for each guest (a $104 value)
On Saturday, October 6 and Sunday, October 7, festival-goers can sip zesty sangria or award-winning varietals as they listen to live music from eight acclaimed jazz bands and musicians. On both days, four jazz groups inject the crisp air with soulful melodies, crooning blues guitars, and uplifting piano chords that drift into the clouds to raise the spirits of woebegone weather balloons. Revelers can also join in wine tastings, browse crafts from onsite local artisans, and embark on hayrides throughout the vineyard.
Elk Run Vineyards
Underneath the same country sky which blankets Frederick County Dairy farms and horse stables, the Elk Run vineyard sits on the rolling hills of Mt Airy on an original land grant to Lord Baltimore in 1756. These ideal growing conditions have allowed consistent award winning wines by the same winemaker Fred Wilson for 35 years, producing National and International Gold Silver and Double Gold medals for such wines as Cabernet Franc, Chardonnay and Gewurzrtraminer. Elk Run's winemaker crafts these libations using a blend of contemporary equipment and Old-World wine making techniques. They harvest grapes from plots planted in schist and shale soil designed to follow sustainable agricultural practices, a modus operandi that has helped the winery become one of the top 100 wineries on the East Coast, as well as one of the most acclaimed wineries in the state of Maryland.
