Odyssey: Maryland Wine Country

Learn the fascinating history of wine making in the Free State from one of our leading experts. Al Spoler, of "Cellar Notes," will cover the personalities, practices, and changes that have marked the development of our own wine industry. Through tastings, lectures, and field trips to leading wineries, students will gain a comprehensive understanding of why Maryland is now producing some of the best wine east of the Mississippi. Two classroom sessions will cover the history of Maryland wine and include a tasting session featuring the grapes most common in Maryland.
