Wine Wednesday: The Port of Leonardtown Winery



    Sometimes you need to work together to create something great. That's why The Port of Leonardtown Winery (23190 Newtowne Neck Road Leonardtown Md.) infuses 14 different vineyards to create the best wine that Southern Maryland has to offer. 

    Located in Leonardtown, Md., a town known for its national oyster shucking contests, the Port of Leonardtown winery may be small and easily missed along the road - but we're certain the quality of the wine is what you'll miss.  

    Tastings are $5 and includes six wines and you get to keep the glass.

    A worthwhile event this month could be the Chill Out with Chili event January 26 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. You'll taste a bowl of Chef Loic’s local bison chili, a square of cornbread and your choice of either a glass of wine or a tasting flight of wine. Cost is only $10 if you call ahead. 

    Hours are noon to 6 p.m. Wednesday through Sunday and noon to 9 p.m. on the first Friday of every month. Leonardtown is about 90 minutes from downtown D.C.
