Orchid Cellar Meadery and Winery, Middletown

#3 of 6 in Things to do in Middletown
Winery / Vineyard · Farm
Maryland's premier meadery and winery specializing in complex honey wines, as well as unique red and white varietals. Locally crafted, internationally awarded. Fri & Sat & Sun 12-5pm. Mon-Thurs by appointment.

Our tasting room sits amongst 15 acres of land, 2 acres of grapevines, and a handful of beehives. Don't worry, the beehives are tucked away for safety. We welcome mead fanatics, wine lovers, and beer snobs to sample libations and engage us with their questions and thoughts.

Picnics with outside food is always welcome, but off-premise alcohol is against the rules. Our vineyard lab, Carmen, loves making new friends, so feel free to bring your friendly pup. All ages are welcome, but visitors must be 21+ to drink.

  • This place is an absolute hidden gem - a must-visit if you're in the area. We did a whole mead tasting for $7, which was a great introduction to a beverage I don't know much about. The staff was very knowledgeable about their products and even gave us a few extra pours that weren't on the listing. Setting is beautiful, with the flower gardens that feed the bee colonies surrounding the rustic, log cabin-inspired tasting room. I'll be back!
  • Amazing vineyard. People are super friendly and full of passion. Wines are really good! I personally like Jezebel and Medusa but there have a lot of amazing wines. The price is very reasonable. The environment is also very chill. Strongly recommanded!
  • Take your own bread & cheese, goes great with their wine. Also, great & gracious owners.
  • Visited 3 times over the last 2 years. The professionalism and kindness you get from the staff cannot be overstated. Not to mention the mead is by far the best out of any mead I've had (and I've had a lot)
  • Small casual meadery with some tasty mead. Will stop back when passing thru.
