Berrywine Plantations and Linganore Winecellars

'

Editorial Review

The first things you notice in this Mount Airy winery are the stacks and stacks of wine, most of it rarely seen in wine shops, much of it fruit-based: Terrapin White, Skipjack, raspberry, blackberry, Tej (honey wine) are just a few. There are 30 varieties in all, and they are the reason to visit. Linganore is one of the few places you can taste mead, a honey-based wine with ancient roots, or dandelion wine, a green, herbal concoction. Tastings here are wallet-friendly (they're $5), and there are tours of the facilities every day at noon, 2 and 4 p.m. -- Lavanya Ramanathan (June 2010)
