The tasting room is nice, and the staff are friendly and helpful. We have been to this winery several times and bring a picnic to enjoy outside. They have three picnic tables outdoors and some seating on the porch. Both times we have visited the owner came to our table and asked us what we were drinking, and one time topped off our glasses from his bottle. I enjoy their Basilisk and love the name, as well as the Slither dessert wine. Most of their wines are on the drier side.

The tasting room at Serpent Ridge, nestled in a bucolic area of central Maryland, is small, stylish, and welcoming. We paid $5 each to taste six wines. The price included a glass to take home for our growing collection. My favorite of the six was the light Seyval Blanc, while my husband fell for the Basilisk, a peppery red. We enjoyed a glass of each while relaxing in the comfortable seating area and chatting with the pleasant host. We plan a return visit next time we're in the area!

It is a lovely but tiny place - the staff are very friendly and it was lovely doing the wine tasting! They also sell cheese and chocolate which is nice

Located just south of Westminster in rural Carroll County, Serpent Ridge is only 25 minutes away from Baltimore. The winery specializes in small lots of handmade wine from grapes grown its own vineyards and other Maryland vineyards.

Serpent Ridge consists of about two acres of grapes, allowing, according to the winery, a "hands-on" approach to wine making. Serpent Ridge's wine tasting costs $5, and comes with a souvenir wine glass, with which you sample 6 wines. The winery representative shared a brief description of the wine as he poured the glass, and was willing to discuss each glass, and didn't make you feel silly for asking even the most basic questions. The wine tasting room was cozy and comfortable, not intimidating.

Located in Westminster, MD on a beautiful property we came across the friendliest Wine tasting we have ever had. The winery itself has a lovely tasting room, complete with gifts, local cheeses, superb chocolate and a beautiful front porch where you can relax and enjoy your purchases after your tasting. Picnicking is also allowed and they have tables and also a nice grassy area.
The wines they make are really lovely. Exquisite tasting and there special stopper in the bottles is outstanding. Kept our wine fresh but easy to take it and out of the bottle. And they give you free ones to take home.
After relaxing on the porch we played a few rounds of a bean bag toss game that just added to the fun of the day.
