Wine and Pumpkin Time

Pumpkin and wine – two best friends If you’ve been to your local liquor store within the past few months, you probably know that pumpkin beer is everywhere. While our sister company, Red Shedman Farm Brewery, makes delicious one of those, we think it’s time that wine get a little pumpkin lovin’, too. Here are a few of our wines that will compliment a sweet, savory or spicy pumpkin dish: Chardonnay: Our Maryland Chardonnay is lightly oaked with rich flavor hints including caramel, vanilla and pear.

They’re pretty much a Linganore staple when it comes to our sweeter wines. Well we have our Mountain White, Mountain Pink and Mountain Berry, and a few weeks ago we introduced our newest: Mountain Red. What took us so long?
