Chesapeake Wine Trail Pavilion hosts new wineries at the 2016 Chestertown Tea Party Festival
This year the Tea Party continues the success of hosting artisan wine tastings. Six Chesapeake Wine Trail Wineries will be offering new releases and premium tastings at the festival 10 am to 5 pm Saturday May 28th. The wineries running north to south on the Chesapeake Wine Trail include Dove Valley Winery, Crow Vineyard & Winery, Salisa Winery, The Vineyards at Dogwood, Clovelly Vineyards and Triple Creek Winery.
“The Wine Trail Pavilion at Tea Party is a great branding forum for wineries on the trail that are centered near Chestertown…” says Lotte Bowie manager of the shorevines Experience Chesapeake Wine Country initiative. Not only do the wineries collectively express that wine country has arrived here on the shore, the special venue provides them with a conversational platform to talk about their wines to those who want to know about and try the best of local and artisan.” Next year we hope to have even more wineries here at the Chesapeake Wine Trail Pavilion as the wine industry is growing with more players on the eastern shore.” This year the pavilion will include a large tent positioned riverside on the back lawn of the Washington College Custom, offering shade for wine tastings and a place to pit stop from the crowds at Tea Party. As well a large display and map of the Chesapeake Wine Trail sponsored by the Upper Shore Regional Council will be featured in the tent with information on the 16 winery trail a program of Maryland Wine.
