12th — Summer Tour — Our tour will meet at 9 a.m. We will start our day with coffee and donuts at the American Legion Post in Biglerville. At 9:45, we’ll depart and wind our way through the scenic byways of Pennsylvania and Maryland towards the beautiful and remote Linganore Winecellars, Maryland’s largest estate winery and vineyards. There we will be able to taste test wine, beer, and cider, go on a guided winery tour, and even visit the new brew house. Afterwards, we’ll continue on through Frederick Co. to Taylorsville to enjoy a picnic at the home of Howard & Chris King, and Dan & Annette Yost. Fried chicken, pulled pork, and other delicious goodies will be served. Everyone will have lots of time to talk and kick tires.
Cost for the day is only $17 which includes coffee & donuts and the picnic buffet.
The optional wine tasting must be booked ahead of time at $5 per person. The wines are great and there is a wide variety. If you are not tasting (designated driver?) then the tour is free! Beer and cider tasting is pay-as-you-go in the brew house.
