Rules and Regulations

  1. When you visit wineries in Maryland, you can collect a “code” from each visit. You will see a passport display rack at each wine.  The display features a code that is specific to the individual winery. Enter the code in the space provided inside your passport booklet, or keep track of it on your own. For example, you could keep track via wine trail brochures or with your own pen and paper. It is important to note the number “zero” is used in all codes, not the letter “O.”
  2. When you have visited a wine and collected its code, log on to Create a Maryland Wine Login and enter the winery codes.  Enter your codes and once you reach eight wine visits, you will receive an email from the Maryland Wineries Association naming your rewards!
