Maryland Wines' Prestigious Awards!

Maryland wines compete with the best wines around the world. Winemakers can take pride in the fact that they have won international awards - often beating out the likes of highly-acclaimed wine such as Mondavi. Of course we love to tout our own Maryland Governor's Cup Competition and Maryland Winemasters' Choice Awards, held each year to find the best wines in Maryland. For the past few years, the Governor himself has presented the award at the Maryland Wine Festival in September.
