Patuxent Wine Trail Launches Highlighting Wineries of Calvert County
The Patuxent Wine Trail is a comprehensive guide to Calvert County wineries that showcases the sophisticated tastes of local wines and the diversity of the county’s beautiful landscape. Ranging from north to south, from rolling farmland to creek-side retreats, the Patuxent Wine Trail winds through some of the region’s most stunning scenery. At each stop, the winemakers’ art is on full display, from vine to vat to bottle.
Calvert County is known as the Pleasant Peninsula, and you will soon see why after experiencing the sublime pleasures of the Patuxent Wine Trail. Part of historic Southern Maryland, Calvert County offers stunning water vistas and beautiful rolling farmland that soothes the soul. The region’s soil and climate are also a close approximation of the famed Tuscany region of Italy, and local wine makers are creating sumptuous award-winning wines to rival those anywhere.
