Happy Birthday (Ours)!
As of today, March 3, 2019, our tasting room has been open for a full year. During that year, we’ve enjoyed meeting and pouring our wines for a lot of people—many local, many from the D.C. and Baltimore metro areas, and many from much farther afield. It’s been exciting for us, and we hope for you too. To all of you, we want to say thanks for coming by!

We have just released Ginger Zest, our limited edition holiday wine. (Very limited, just four cases of split bottles!)
Ginger Zest is a dry aperitif-type wine made from Vidal Blanc grapes co-fermented with oranges, lemons, and lots of fresh grated ginger, and aged for one year to a golden maturity.
We hope you’ll like it…stop by and give it a try!

Two great things happen at this time of year: we start turning our grapes into wine, and our neighbors, Sam and Mary Jane Roop, open Brookfield Farm to the public for a fall celebration.
Brookfield offers hayrides to their 15 acre Pumpkin Patch (where you can pick your own pumpkin), a corn maze, a farm animal petting zoo, and other activities to entertain your children. It’s a great experience and an opportunity to purchase the perfect pumpkin for Halloween! So on your way to Links Bridge Vineyards, stop up the road and enjoy a special family adventure that has become a tradition in our area.
You’ll find Brookfield Farm at 8302 Ramsburg Rd, Thurmont, MD 21788. The Pumpkin Patch is open Sept 29 through Oct 31. Mon-Thurs 3pm-6pm. Fri-Sun 10am-6pm. Visit www.BrookfieldPumpkins.com for more information.

Links Bridge Vineyards Hosts Paintings by Melissa Carr
From August 11 through August 26, we will host a colorful selection of abstract paintings by Frederick County artist Melissa Carr. Melissa specializes in illustration, graphic design, and painting. She earned a degree in graphic design at the Art Institute of Pittsburg and is working on a Masters in Education at Mount St. Mary’s University. This is leading to a fourth specialization–encouraging the creativity of children and introducing them to the world of art.
We hope you’ll come on by for a look at Melissa’s paintings and enjoy a glass of wine at the same time! You’re also invited to meet Melissa at a reception on Friday evening August 17th, 6-8pm.
