Old Westminster Winery Dinner Cruise
September 13 @ 5:30pm| $109.00
Captain Jen fell in love with this winery’s location, wine and people that work at Old Westminster Winery at their grand opening in 2013. The proprietors, the Baker family, are raising a reputation for crafting wines of intrigue. The property is situated on a rocky plot of ground just south of historic Westminster, MD, where patrons enjoy the ambiance of the vineyard and a hands-on winery producing exceptional wines.
The Baker family believes this winery represents the American Dream: strong family, faith, sustainability and entrepreneurial spirit. Through teamwork and shared commitment, they strive to create wines that reflect the terroir and balanced farming practices. Old Westminster Winery is a place to enjoy hand-crafted wines produced in an environmentally conscious way, build relationships and genuinely connect with the land.
Schooner Woodwind’s Dinner Cruises are a very casual affair. Courses are served picnic-style and food is presented chilled or at room temperature. You will thoroughly enjoy the event aboard. We really do sail, so wear soft soled shoes. And please, feel free to raise the sails, steer the boat, or sit back and relax.
