Fifth-generation Md. winemaker creating her own history with recent awards
September 30, 2022
For Rachel Loew Lipman, 2022 will go down as one she won’t forget, a roller coaster of a year that has seen sorrow as well as happiness.
Lipman, 29, already was working full time at Loew Vineyards in Mt. Airy, Maryland, when her grandfather died in April. William and Lois Loew had bought a 37-acre parcel in Frederick County in March 1982, planted vines, and by 1986 were selling their first bottles of wine. For several decades they continued to carry forward a family vocation that began in the mid-1800s, in Bursztyn, Poland, when Meilech Loew began making mead and his sons became involved in wine distribution and marketing.
While Lois remains the owner, Lipman is taking on the added responsibility as the winery general manager with an eagerness to revitalize the business in addition to using it as a vehicle to tell the family story, one that goes back through several generations of wine and mead producers.To continue reading this great story, please visit PennLive.com.
