No Thyme to Cook, located on beautiful Solomons Island, offers engaging, educational, and always entertaining one-of-a-kind culinary experiences. From cooking classes to fine wine dinners - it is not your typical night out.
Janemark Winery and Vineyard is located in Southern Prince George's County. The owners Jane and Mark, wanted to bring their love of Napa Valley wine country to the east coast and planted Janemark's first grapevines in 2013. Committed to sustainability, Janemark has successfully transformed fields that once grew tobacco into fields that produce some of the best grapes and wines that Maryland has to offer.
Mully's Brewery is a family-run craft brewery based in Prince Frederick. Stop in to sample beers and see how it's made, or ask for it in your local bar, restaurant or liquor store. From our family to yours, cheers!
