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.
