The combination of wine, food, music, crafts and vendors will flow across the landscape of the Carroll County Farm Museum on Saturday and Sunday, Sept. 15-16, for the 29th annual Maryland Wine Festival. The festival is always a popular event for grape lovers, but it also celebrates the wine industry in the state - this year, some 37 different wineries will be represented. Several winery or vineyard operations either in Carroll County, or immediately close by, will be represented, including Cygnus Wine Cellars in Manchester; Galloping Goose in Hampstead; Serpent Ridge Vineyards in Westminster; Detour Winery near Keymar; and Elk Run Vineyards and Linganore Winecellars in Mount Airy.

Greg Sliviak's basement looks to be part chemistry lab, part kitchen and part moonshine operation. The table in his workshop is lined with huge glass jugs, filled with jewel-colored juice that's slowly fermenting into award-winning wines. While most wine-makers, both amateur and professional, start with grapes, Sliviak takes a different approach. His recipes start with raspberries, strawberries, apples, cherries, peaches and other fruit. He learned the technique from his father and uncles, who grew up on a farm near Pittsburgh and "made wine with whatever they could get ahold of,"  said Sliviak, 54, a retired union ironworker who lives in Sykesville and makes and sells furniture and railings.

For patrons of the 16th Maryland Wine Festival at the Carroll County Farm Museum yesterday, "BYOB" could easily have meant "Bring Your Own Blanket." That's what many of the estimated 10,000 festival-goers did, while others came early to stake out picnic tables near or far from the speakers that were blaring everything from country to swing jazz and Dixieland all day. Sponsored by the Association of Maryland Wineries, the Maryland Grape Growers Association, the American Wine Society, the county and the 140-acre Farm Museum in Westminster, the annual two-day celebration served a dual role this year.
