Chesapeake Wine Trails Debuts August 4

Whether you are on your way to the beach or just taking a drive to admire the beautiful Bay, the Chesapeake Wine Trail will lead you through one of the most scenic and charming parts of the state. East of the Chesapeake Bay, Maryland’s Eastern Shore is abundant with seafood, beaches, wildlife and history, and now a beautiful—and delicious—wine trail.

The Chesapeake Wine Trail links wineries from Cecil County down through Worcester County, and is a partnership between Eastern Shore county offices of tourism, the Maryland Department of Agriculture and the Maryland Wineries Association.

Join us for a celebratory toast to the opening of the Chesapeake Wine Trail, and enjoy a wine tasting of regional wines. State and County representatives have been invited to attend and discuss the importance of the wine trail to the region’s agriculture and tourism sustainability efforts.
