With wines grown specifically to pair with Maryland’s unique seafood bounty, the unforgettable views and the warm, welcoming spirit of the Eastern Shore, makes the Chesapeake Wine Trail  a must-do trip for every wine lover.

Travel through the Eastern Shore’s spectacular wide open spaces, exhale your cares away and breathe in that peaceful, easy feeling. As you unwind, pair the scenery and slower pace of life with some flavorful wine.  The Barbera grape is just one of the key ingredients that put the Atlantic Coastal Plain Region and the Chesapeake Wine Trail on the map.

While you’re here, explore the rich history of the region, home to American heroes such as Harriet Tubman and Frederick Douglass, whose indomitable spirits shaped our modern nation. Explore the bay on a Skipjack, the traditional oyster boat of the Chesapeake, and part of the only remaining sail-powered fishing fleet in North America.

Experience the Chesapeake's rich culture with treasures like The Ward Museum of Wildfowl Art, and get in touch with this vibrant folk art tradition.  Visit the Fiber Arts Center of the Eastern Shore to understand the power and history of Eastern Shore quilting. Ride the Oxford Bellevue Ferry, established in 1683, the oldest privately owned ferry in the nation.  And time your trip to experience the National Folk Festival, in Salisbury, in September 2021.

And did we mention those wines? Taste the fruit of Maryland’s Atlantic Coastal Plain growing region and the labor of love of our artisan winemakers.
