Wine Tour at Linganore Winecellars

    Who doesn't love a good wine tour?  You get to drink and learn about what you're drinking.  And usually wineries are set in beautiful locations, with sweeping views of fields with vines and farms.  


    I recently took a tour of Linganore Winecellars near Mt. Airy, Maryland.  I had a Groupon!  I had been there in the summer for one of their famous festivals before.  This time I was going on Halloween weekend and the weather had taken a freak twist of fate and decided to snow...  Very odd for Maryland on Halloween.

    I realized that snow and autumn leaf colors make a beautiful picture!  You just don't see it very often. 


Linganore Winecellars is located in the Linganore  American Viticultural Area, which means it's a very good place to grow grapes for wine.  So they have estate wines there and none estate wines.  If you haven't had their wine before, they have a variety of regular dry reds and whites, in addition to a popular line of fruity wines.




The tour of the facilities is free to all visitors.  I was told if you take the tour on a weekday, you'll see the magic at work, with workers processing the grapes after harvest.  I recommend a visit to Linganore if you haven't been before.  It looks like they have a lot of outdoor seating for the warm months, but there aren't many seats inside.  For more information, visit their website: http://www.linganore-wine.com/
