Foodie best bet: Maryland Wine Festival

Taste local wines, take in light-hearted wine education seminars and play amateur wine judge at the 27th Maryland Wine Festival. Amateur wine judges beware: past entries in the homemade wine competition include a vino made with parsnips. For those who'd rather leave wine-making to the professionals, there are offerings from wineries from Western Maryland, Southern Maryland and the Eastern Shore. Food vendors range from typical fair fare -- turkey legs and hot dogs -- to Firefly Farms goat cheese on baguettes. --Laura Vozzella Handout photo
