The Baltimore Sun had a very interesting article this week on Maryland's new wine shipping laws (http://www.baltimoresun.com/business/bs-md-wine-shipping-20110620,0,5328126,full.story). To date, only eight Maryland vineyards have applied for the required permits -- our own Elk Run Vineyards is one of them. Since the law is new, it sounds like more wineries will get on board soon. We're glad that Maryland wineries will be able to reach wider audiences...their products are delicious! As you know, we're big fans.
Here's a new way to get the most from the Market: it's a great opportunity to expand your horizons and try some new varieties, buy a few bottles to sample out at home, and stock up on wines for those non-Market seasons. And gift-buying just got even better!
