First let us introduce ourselves, we are Ashley and Marla. We have been best friends for years!
With years and years of friendship between us, we have been through bottles of wine to babies and back again! We both have Ag related backgrounds. Ashley also grows wine grapes to sell to Maryland wineries and has sat on the Maryland Grape Growers Board of Directors for the last four years. We think it’s important to note why our blog is called “The Wine Pact.” We both have families, careers and a lot less time than we use to. Our New Years Resolution this year was to get together at least once a month and go to a local winery. Because after all, we both like a good glass of wine! Since we only get together once a month, time is limited. We look for a place that has wine we think we’d like or perhaps someone has recommended. We have received a ton of recommendations but we like to narrow them down. We also look for location that will it work with our time constraints for that particular day. We look at what type of winery it is? Do they grow their own grapes or support local agriculture? What types of food and entertainment do they offer? There’s actually a lot that goes into our little day out. We are very passionate about it and that’s why we are so honest about our experiences. Now, the reason why we want to share our journey with you is because every time we tell someone about our pact, they want to know what we plan to do or where we have visited. Everyone just seems really interested! Each month they want to know more! So here it is…..
We will also include links in each post so that you too can check out and the wineries we have visited!! We hope you will enjoy our wine pact journey as much as we do!
