The Frederick Wine Trail has been Maryland’s “trailblazer” since its formation in 2007 as the first wine trail in the state. At that time, six Frederick County wineries decided to pool their talents and resources in order to publicize and promote the wines of Frederick. With grant support through the Frederick County Bureaus of Tourism and Economic Development, the Maryland State Wine Advisory board, the Maryland Winery Association, as well as the cooperative endeavors of the trail members, the Wine Trail a formed a nonprofit organization to promote grape growing and wine making, thus pioneering a new “value added” agricultural commodity growing in the ideal soils and topography of Frederick County. This endeavor led to a statewide effort to establish a consistent wine trail development program. All the early wineries were pioneers in grape growing, beginning with the oldest family run winery in Maryland, Linganore, established in 1978. More recent developments include website design, trail brochures and three Frederick Wine Trail Festivals. In view of the expanding and more diverse industry this year, Frederick Tourism launched a countywide brochure highlighting twenty-six craft beverage purveyors.
