Cassinelli opens doors on Eastern Shore

Cassinelli Vineyards & Winery, Maryland's newest winery, has opened. If I've counted right, that's 27 open for business that are members of the Maryland Wineries Association.

Located on the Eastern Shore in Church Hill, the family-owned and operated boutique winery grows Merlot, Chardonnay and Viognier on part of its 110-acre farm and sources the remainder of the fruit.

Its Web site also notes that visitors will also see Blank Angus cows, buffalo and donkeys. A 3-acre pumpkin patch and apple orchard also occupy some of the land. Hours run from noon to 5 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays.
