It’s Easy to be Green

Happy Earth Day!

Linganore Winecellars is pleased to be a Maryland Green Travel partner.

Since the winery opened in 1976, the Aellens have been employing green business practices, but back then we just called it being resourceful and employing good farming practices. Taking care of the land and reusing things  just made good sense. As the winery grew, so did our thoughtful practices.

Some of our more recent acheivement:

In 2011, power supplied to the winery was converted to 100% wind power, leading us to win 2011 Green Business of the Year, in the small to midsize business category, from the Baltimore Business Journal. We also received a grant from the Department of Agriculture which allowed for the installation of 2 Electric Car Charging Stations, that are powered by a sun tracking solar panel.

Our most recent endeavor was the installation of a wind anemometer, which will record wind speed to determine if we can install our own wind turbines further reducing our carbon footprint.Linganore Winery | Environmentally Conscious in MD
