Baltimore County Now
by Marjorie Hampson
Baltimore County Tourism Director
Ernest Hemingway observed, “Wine is the most civilized thing in the world.” If that’s true, northern Baltimore County and its outstanding wineries and vineyards offer wine lovers a civilized and inviting place to visit. Experience award-winning and hand-crafted wines at any of the County’s four family-owned wineries. Located in Hydes, Boordy and DeJon vineyards boast picturesque grounds and high-quality red and white table wines. Basignani Winery and Woodhall Wine Cellars, along the York Road corridor, produce classically styled wines from Maryland-grown grapes. Visit, take a tour, and enjoy the local flavor.
Enjoy special events and happenings at the wineries and vineyards. At Boordy, visit Good Life Thursdays and on Saturdays attend Midsummer Evening Concerts:http://www.boordy.com/events.
