As part of our #BuyLocalMD series this holiday season, MDBIZ News hopes to inspire you to explore the small businesses in your own community.
When you buy from a Maryland winery or brewery, you support a local business while getting a full taste of what the State has to offer. From the western mountains to the Atlantic seashore, each local product is seasoned with Maryland flavor.
Hear from some of Maryland’s finest beverage connoisseurs on how they give back to the community.
- Deep Creek Cellars
- Garrett County
- Owned by husband and wife team Paul Roberts and Nadine Grabania, this Friendsville winery focuses on “natural wine-making” by using sustainable farming practices. Additionally, Deep Creek Cellars is known as one of the few Pinot Noir specialists among Mid-Atlantic wineries.
“Local wine, like locally-produced food, is one of the most personal gifts one can give. Wine reflects its season and, like a favorite song, helps us remember an important moment or event,” said Paul Roberts. “When customers select Deep Creek Cellars’ Pinot Noir at a neighborhood wine retailer in Maryland, they’re not only getting a wine from the world’s most sought-after grape variety, but also a little piece of the winemaker’s personality—plus, an imprint of the exact place and time those grapes ripened.”
