Welcome to the Free State Wine Project, a blog covering wine, wineries, and the wine industry in the mid-Atlantic region. From my home base in Central Maryland, we’ll cover wine news, trends, and more, with a primary focus on the MD-VA-PA region.

About the author:

Hi there! My name is Matthew and I’ve enjoyed wine since long before I started blogging, so please forgive me as I get in stride with the writing and start to build out the design and secondary pages. My wine preference is for dry, complicated wines (both red and white), although I have been known to dabble in sweeter wines from time to time.

You can catch up with me in 140-character format at
