Local Wine & Beer Tastings

Tasting Room-- St. Michaels Winery
Tasting Room– St. Michaels Winery

St. Michaels has long been known for fine dining, with a variety of top notch restaurants featuring regional cuisine. In recent years, we’ve also gained recognition for the wonderful local wine and beer from St. Michaels Winery and the Eastern Shore Brewing Company, both of which have tasting rooms located in downtown St. Michaels, a short walk up Talbot Street from Five Gables.

St. Michaels Winery was founded in 2005 and offers an array of fine wines made from grapes grown in their Henderson and Wye Mills vineyards. Their wines have won a number of awards, including the Maryland Governor’s Cup “Best in Class” and the Maryland Winemasters Choice Gold Medal. The tasting room is open daily without appointment. You can also contact the Winery ahead of time to schedule a private tasting for a group of 10 or more. Each tasting is conducted by a trained member of the St. Michaels Winery staff and includes wine, a souvenir wine glass, and sample cheeses from Chapel’s Country Creamery.

The Eastern Shore Brewing Company opened in 2008 and has a tasting room located right on Talbot Street in the heart of St. Michaels (very close to the Winery if you want to visit both in one afternoon!). The Brewery offers a variety of beers for sampling and you can even assemble your own variety pack of beer to take home. Each hand crafted beer is brewed directly on the premises and guests are encouraged stop by and taste their St. Michaels Ale, Knot So Pale Ale, and Magic Hefeweizen, to name a few! Tours are also available upon request.
