If you've got patience, you've got what it takes to make wine at home. Whether you're stomping down grapes with your feet or using a store-bought wine-making kit, the process can be as high- or low-tech as you want. Right now, Maryland and Pennsylvania vineyards are harvesting grapes for the season, said Richard Penna, chair of the governor's advisory commission on Maryland wine and grape growing. Penna owns Antietam Vineyards in Knoxville, Md., east of the Washington County line.

By SAVORY SAM SHARPSBURG -- One of the highly anticipated restaurants on the to-be-reviewed list of the Savory Sam clan has been Antietam Café and Wine Bar, a recently developed restaurant on Sharpsburg's main drag. A couple visits in the past month did not disappoint. Although there were quibbles with some dishes and prices are upper tier for Washington County, Antietam Café and Wine Bar is worth a visit. The café is a renovated home next to Captain Benders. The layout of the house has been preserved in the suite of dining areas.

MARTINSBURG, W.Va. - Martinsburg junior Jake Wines admitted he felt nervous when he made his first start of the season Tuesday night against Hedgesville. The nervousness led to a shaky first inning when Wines loaded the bases, but the jitters would soon disappear, followed by the Hedgesville bats. Wines scattered four hits and struck out six in a complete-game shutout and the Bulldogs did just enough at the plate to notch a 2-0 home victory under a steady drizzle. "I think I threw pretty good tonight and located the ball well," Wines said.

tammyb@herald-mail.com ANNAPOLIS - A Senate committee this week dampened efforts by Sen. Donald F. Munson, R-Washington, to promote Maryland wine making in agricultural areas, saying money being sought for promotions is needed elsewhere. Munson has sponsored two bills, one of which would renew an advisory commission on wine and grape growing. The other would establish a promotion council for Maryland wineries, funded with money collected from taxes on wine. Del. Virginia Clagett, D-Anne Arundel, has filed companion bills in the House.

I've had this ongoing debate in my head for some time now: Is it worthwhile to become an expert in the area of one consumer good or another, simply for the pleasure of paying more for it? Ignorance might or might not be bliss, but one thing's for certain: Ignorance is cheap. Or at least cheaper. In all, I've come to believe there is a fine line between being an aficionado and an aficionadupe. If you know nothing about cigars, a $425 Montecristo No. 2 from 1961 isn't going to give you any more pleasure than a Swisher Sweet.
