Now that spring is here and temperatures are rising, Boordy Vineyards is kicking off its annual outdoor Reds, Whites and Bluegrass Festival. Sunday, the vineyard will have a live performance by the Satyr Hill Band, catered food and about a dozen of the wines they make on premises for sampling and selling. The vineyard's president, Rob Deford, said the festival fits in with Boordy's mission -- that wine should be enjoyed in a laid back, pretension-free atmosphere. "It's casual, it's rural -- it's all the things that we are," Deford said.

Boordy Vineyards, Maryland's oldest and one of its largest wineries, has started over. Transforming the northern Baltimore County winery meant ripping up its grape-growing and winemaking operations literally root and branch, and rebuilding them at a cost of more than $3.3 million. "What we're doing is making a big investment in the future of making wine in Maryland," said Rob Deford, Boordy's president and co-owner, whose family will host a reception this week opening the new winemaking operation.

I was about to sit down and write a column about cabernet sauvignon and merlot when I got the phone call telling me Philip Wagner was dead.Cabernet and Merlot can wait.Wagner, who died Dec. 29 at the age of 92, was a most remarkable man. It would be difficult to overstate how important a figure this Baltimore newspaperman was in the world of wine.This was a man who reinvented the wine industry in the United States east of the Rockies. He accomplished this in his spare time, while pursuing a distinguished journalistic career that ended in 1964, when he retired as editor of The Sun.Wagner was also the man who taught America how to make wine at home, inspiring generations of amateur vintners.

This time of year, the leafless vines at Boordy Vineyards look as if they've been permanently etched against the gray sky. Now, Anne M. Deford has found a way to ensure that those vines - which produce seyval blanc and chardonnay grapes - remain firmly rooted in the land. Deford, owner of 252-acre Long Green Farm - home to Boordy Vineyards - has joined a movement that is responsible for protecting one-third of the Long Green Valley National Historic District in northeastern Baltimore County.

I had my bachelorette weekend recently and it made me think about all of the different options available in and around Baltimore. There really is something suitable for every bride. For example, mine was an entire weekend in one of my favorite places on earth - Ocean City, MD. While the weather was a bit chilly it was perfect for me to be at the beach, enjoy all of my favorite restaurants and bars and relax with the women in my life who mean the most to me. Other weekend getaways in and around the area include Annapolis, D.C., Deep Creek, Philadelphia or even Atlantic City.

Not so long ago, if you wanted to visit a vineyard near Baltimore for an afternoon of tastings and tours, your first and typically only stop was Boordy Vineyards, the oldest vineyard in the state, established in Hydes in 1945. Even in winter, it was a lovely way to spend an afternoon, with plenty of wines to sample and buy, and experts to lead you through the grounds and winemaking operations. Now, though, it's easy to extend the experience, visiting another Maryland vineyard or two nearby.
