Now in its fifth yearand its first at Bay Bridge Marinathe Chesapeake Bay Wine Festival immerses guests in two days of music, food, and wines from across the globe. The Maryland tent holds carefully selected pours from throughout the state, drawn from such vineyards as St. Michaels Winery, Layton's Chance Winery, Mark Cascia Vineyards, and Cove Point Winery, complementing a selection of international wines. One hundred and forty craft brews pour from outfits including Evolution, Flying Dog, and Heavy Seas.
Live music soundtracks the entire festival. On Saturday, Uncle Jack pays tribute to classic funk, disco, and Motown tunes with singer Nova Peele's soaring vocals and a full band that includes a trumpet, saxophone, and dog whistle that only the grooviest mutts can hear. The Roadhouse Clams represent the Eastern Shore on Sunday, mixing back-country folksiness with whip-smart lyrics and high-energy country-pop tunes. The event runs from noon to 6 p.m. both days, and tasting samples are included in admission.
Since its first event in 2008, the Chesapeake Bay Wine Festival has steadily added to its multisensory feast of libations, food, and live sounds. Originally conceived to highlight Maryland's wines, beers, and local delicacies, the festival now brings wines from around the world to its bayside location. White tents shield tasters from rain, sunburn, and any curious fish who might try to leap into their goblets. Each year, the festival benefits an array of community- and family-focused organizations.
