Day Trip

Sips and scenery on Maryland's Chesapeake Wine Trail

Day Trip - Visitors to Maryland’s Eastern Shore are often pleasantly surprised to discover wineries dotting the region’s scenic byways.

To help spread the word, the Chesapeake Wine Trail was formed in 2009; it showcases wineries and vineyards in the state’s Atlantic Coastal Plain growing region.

“It’s one of several trails that run throughout Maryland,” says Judy Crow, owner of Crow Vineyard near Chestertown and president of the Maryland Wineries Association. Currently, the group includes 14 venues, from Dove Valley Winery near Elkton in the north to Bordeleau Winery near Salisbury in the south. Most hold tastings and special events year-round—and the fruits of their labor are getting noticed. Crow Vineyard, Chateau Bu-De and Dove Valley all won awards at the 2020 Maryland Governor’s Cup competition.

Day Trip - Judy Crow enjoys hosting visitors from metropolitan areas.

“They are in awe of the beauty and openness of the Eastern Shore,” she remarks. “To be able to stop and immerse themselves in these farm wineries is really important. And finding out that there are good wines here is icing on the cake.” maryland wine.com/wine-trails
