DrinkLocalWine’s 2013 Conference To Take Place in Baltimore, MD on 4/13
DrinkLocalWine will hold its fifth annual conference in less than two months in Baltimore, focusing on Maryland wine. The state’s industry is one of the fastest growing in the country, and its 61 wineries are almost 50 percent more than in 2010.
The state’s four growing regions allow it to produce a variety of wines, including the classic European varietals but also some that are distinctly New World in style. The Maryland Winery Association is the conference’s primary sponsor.
Panels of speakers will discuss the winemaking region’s history, challenges, trends and more in three (possibly four) morning seminars. Then an elegant lunch with local ingredients will be paired with select Maryland wines.
In the afternoon, we taste through the state’s portfolio of wines and report our findings to the world via the unique feature of DLW conferences, the Twitter Taste-Off. Over 20 of Maryland’s most award-winning wineries will be participating in the fifth annual Twitter Taste-off at The Warehouse at Camden Yards. This is your chance to sip, tweet, and tell the world your thoughts on Maryland wine. Participants will taste a wide variety of Maryland’s most desired wines, and report their experiences to the world.
The conference will take place on April 13th at the Tremont Suites Hotel in downtown Baltimore, Maryland. Tickets are now on sale for the conference; you may purchase them by visiting the DLW page on the Maryland Wine Association website.
