Maryland Wine

The Washington Post did a neat article on Maryland Wine in their food section yesterday.  They report a couple of interesting tidbits.  First that Maryland wineries are up from 15 in 2000 to 52 today, with 15 additional applications pending.  I also liked the information that Black Ankle Vineyards was the first Maryland winery  that sought out land (poor, rocky soils on relatively steep slopes) specifically for grape growing rather than planting on a previously owned farm. Exciting times and you as a Frederick County resident are living in the center of Maryland’s wine country.
