If you’re currently stressing over which weekend to select for your weekend getaway to the Eastern Shore of Maryland, we are positive that this beloved local event will tip the scales for you…that’s right, we’re talking about WineFest at St. Michaels! Now in its 7th year, WineFest is Maryland’s premiere wine event featuring hundreds of regional, national, and international wines. Even better is the fact that WineFest is held in St. Michaels, which is just a short drive from the Combsberry Inn. That means a full weekend of relaxing at our historic bed & breakfast coupled with a day trip (or two!) to St. Michaels to enjoy the 7th Annual WineFest. We told you it was a no-brainer!
This year’s WineFest will take place Friday, April 22 through Sunday, April 24, with the festivities kicking off Friday evening during the Rare & Reserve Wine Tasting. Extremely limited, reserve level wines will be paired with gourmet appetizers from award winning Executive Chef Adam Sanders, owner of Jules Fine Dining in Ocean City, Maryland. Saturday and Sunday, WineFest will take place from noon until 5pm, with wine tasting venues spread throughout the town. There will also be two VIP tasting venues, which will offer premium wines that are often not available in Maryland. Perhaps our favorite part though is the lineup of Winemakers and industry experts that are available each year.
There are a number of options for tickets, which are outlined here. We suggest opting for the two-day WineFest ticket, which includes access to 12 tasting venues, more than 300 international, domestic, and local wines, a keepsake wine tasting glass, access to professionals from around the world, and a fantastic two days of fun in St. Michaels! There are also one-day ticket options as well as VIP tickets. Either way, we can’t think of a better way to celebrate spring than with a warm afternoon spent in St. Michaels sipping on wine, followed by a relaxing evening at the Inn enjoying our waterfront views and unparalleled amenities.
