Retailer Of the Month

"Of the Month" Selections
Each month a restaurant and retail store will be honored for their support of the Maryland wine industry. The proprietors of these establishments have made an effort to stock and promote locally-produced wines, one of the state’s finest agricultural products. These two establishments deserve special recognition for their longstanding support of Maryland wine, and will be noted in the Beverage Journal and numerous consumer publications each month. If you'd like to nominate a restaurant or retail store, just send us an e-mail at We'll call to verify which MD wines are stocked.
