Antietam Highlands Wine Trail Tour

An easy drive from the hustle and bustle of Baltimore, Washington, and Philadelphia, making the trip along the Antietam Highlands Wine Trail can feel like an escape to another century. Anchored by a dozen unique vineyards, meaderies, and even a pair of cider mills, the Antietam Highlands Trail is connected by a glassy smooth ribbon of asphalt winding through Maryland’s lush, rolling hills, historic battlefields, and unforgettable small towns.

And oh, those wines! As magnificent as this uniquely Maryland countryside can be, it’s the wines that make this a trip fit for a sommelier's dreams. Blessed with rare, lime-rich soil, balmy days, crisp-cool nights, and a pleasant elevation rising just a few hundred, to a few thousand feet above sea level and away from the humidity that challenges so many American vineyards, the Antietam Trail is perfectly suited to growing classic, French and German grapes; it’s no wonder the region has produced so many remarkable wines.
