On Tuesday, I participated in a media panel at the Maryland Wineries Association’s annual seminar for winemakers. Public speaking makes me nervous but I was excited to be there. I love visiting Maryland wineries and trying different wines.
Oh, let’s be honest, I just plain love wine. Responsibly, of course.
I saw many familiar faces – like the folks from Boordy and Elk Run – and met many new ones – like Richard from Knob Hall, the only winery in Washington County, and Matt, from the soon-to-be-first-and-only winery in Somerset County.
I probably learned as much from them about the business of wine as they, hopefully, did from me about best ways to approach the media. It was a great experience and I hope to share more soon about the exciting things happening at the Maryland Wineries Association.
In the meantime, here’s a tip I learned from the seminar: the glass you drink from makes a difference in how the wine tastes. I had no idea! And unfortunately, I didn’t get to stay for the Riedel glass taste test. I guess I’ll have to try it out on my own.
Which Maryland wine should I try? What’s your favorite?
