There can be no doubt, the full force of Baltimore summer is officially upon us. While it might be tempting to stay indoors near the A.C. vent (or on top of it, like my dog), make sure you get the most out this season. Baltimore County has tons of great events going on throughout the summer, especially its many outdoor concerts. These concerts feature a wide array of performers and venues, and quite a few of them are actually free to attend. Outdoor concerts are a great way to relax, socialize and enjoy what summer in Baltimore County has to offer.

No need to be jealous of those Californians any longer (aside from their near-perfect weather); it’s time to ditch the sour grapes and explore what Baltimore County’s wine country has to offer. Whether you are a bona fide wine snob, or are a fan of the rosy-colored sweet stuff that comes by box instead of bottle: our local wineries and vineyards offer something for every taste and interest.
Baltimore County is home to five wineries, each with their own distinct vibe and taste. Basignani, Boordy, DeJon, Royal Rabbit, and Woodhall are spread throughout northern Baltimore County’s renowned horse country. This region is especially well-suited for growing Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Merlot, and Pinot Gris grape varieties.
The best way to explore the area’s wineries, and their offerings, is by following the Piedmont Wine Trail. The trail stops at 10 locations, as it winds through the picturesque rolling hills of Harford and Baltimore Counties. Although it’s hard to believe, you’re still just a short drive from the hustle and bustle of downtown.
Make sure to grab a Maryland Wine Passport, available for purchase at all Maryland wineries, and win awesome prizes, discounted tickets, and more just for visiting.
Even if you’re not the biggest wine-fan, don’t miss out on everything else they have to offer. Baltimore County’s local wineries have a tremendous number of upcoming summertime events, festivals, and concerts that are always great fun and perfect for getting together with friends and family.
