This weekend was the much anticipated wine festival, Wine in the Woods. Much anticipated on my part, mostly since it is located at Merriweather Post Pavilion, which is walking distance from my apartment.

I invited friends over beforehand. We had some champagne mixed with raspberry lemonade to start off the day.

I set out some snacks to buffer the all day of wine drinking to come.

Saturday was so gorgeous out, making for a crowded festival. A little tired of waiting in line for samples, we started purchasing bottles of wine to drink. By far, our favorite Maryland wine is the Gollywobbler, by St. Michael’s Winery. It comes in white, pink or red and literally tastes like fresh grape juice- so dangerous! Needless to say, by the end of the festival, we were ready for a trip to Cheesecake Factory to get some bread in our stomach.

Some of our group at the festival.

Sunday AM, I rose early for the Baltimore Farmers Market under the 83 overpass. I made a weekly ritual of going here on Sunday AM’s last summer and plan to do the same this year.

The market is amazing…fresh veggies, fruit, artisans, falafel, fried mushrooms, fruit smoothies, kettle corn, fresh seafood– I can go on and on. I love the local flare! I’ll make sure to take some photos next time I go.

  1. I LOVE wine in the woods and i’m sad I couldn’t go this year 😦 Also love the farmers market under 83. I went for the first time the other week and fell in love. I can’t wait to go back. The local creamery was amazing, I’m actually obsessed with the half and half I bought!

    • My dad buys some yogurt drink from the creamery that hes loves. And I’ve had the chocolate milk that is soo creamy! You have to get the fruit smoothies or the fried mushrooms next time- they’re to die for!
