Authorized in 2005 and administered by the Department of Agriculture, the Fund provides grants to nongovernmental organizations to encourage the production and consumption of Maryland wine, and the production of wine grapes in the State. Additionally, the Commission identifies strategies to facilitate the growth of viticulture in Maryland.
