Baltimore (/ˈbɔːltɨˌmɔr/, colloquially /ˈbɔl.mɔr/) is the largest city in the U.S. state of Maryland and the 26th largest city in the country. It is located in the central area of the state along the tidal portion of the Patapsco River, an arm of the Chesapeake Bay. The independent city is often referred to as Baltimore City to distinguish it from surrounding Baltimore County. Founded in 1729, Baltimore is the second largest seaport in the Mid-Atlantic United States and is situated closer to Midwestern markets than any other major seaport on the East Coast. Baltimore's Inner Harbor was once the second leading port of entry for immigrants to the United States and a major manufacturing center.

Actually this is good timing. The last time I flew this route the delay for the Baltimore flight was five hours. I need some wine. Since I had white wine for lunch I decided to go…

    …. It paired well with the Charcuterie Plate. For dessert I selected a Baltimore Rainwater from Portugal. This Madeira was a dark gold to orange color and had jammy cooked fruit characteristics. The wine had the typical oxidation associated with a Madeira. The advantage of the wines on tap is the ability to taste a particular wine without opening…

It also has more heart-healthy omega-3 fats than any other edible green veggie…
