The name was derived from the barony of the Proprietor of the Maryland colony, Cecilius Calvert, 2nd Baron Baltimore, in County Longford, Ireland. Baltimore County does not include the City of Baltimore, which was split off as an independent city in 1851.

Most of Maryland's wineries are located in the north central counties. Boordy Vineyards is Maryland's oldest family run vineyard established in 1945. The Woodhall Wine Cellars established in 1983 now offers a variety of 12 wines.
