Wineries of Maryland

We have explored Virginia wineries before, but not so much in Maryland.  I purchased a Maryland Wine Pass earlier this year, and were waiting for a long weekend in the Fall to enjoy exploring a few wineries that had reopened during the pandemic.  We realized not all deals would be available, but decided to give a shot nonetheless.  Read my recap below:

Café Berlin

Serving traditional German cuisine on Capitol Hill since 1986, Café Berlin occupies the ground floor of three joined townhouses whose front yards serve as patios for outdoor dining in warm weather. The interior features a small bar and two prettily decorated dining rooms. The chefs at Café Berlin are German, as are the owners, so the traditional dishes are authentically prepared but with a lighter touch. Changing seasonal menus feature fresh asparagus in the spring, Bavarian dishes during Oktoberfest, and wild game in the winter. Desserts are made in-house, and the extensive repertoire includes apple strudel, black forest cake, and luscious cream tortes. The bar offers a selection of imported German beers and wines as well as cocktails. Closest Metro is Union Station.
