Antietam Creek Vineyards is located in the foothills of South Mountain, 60 miles from Washington DC and Baltimore. We take exceptional care in the vineyard to produce quality grapes that express the full characteristics of Bordeaux-style wines. Come join us for a tasting in our converted 1903 barn and take in a view of rolling hills and the mountains beyond.
Antietam Creek Vineyards is proud to be a 100% local winery -- we grow all our own grapes and process all our own wine.

A tiny crop defines this limited-release wine. Focussed aromas of citrus, hay, and apple segue to fresh citrus and vanilla on the palate. No residual sugar and malolactic fermentation was blocked. Fermented and aged in 100% French oak barrels.
2019 Cabernet Franc
2019 Cabernet FrancRed Wine
Aged in French oak, this wine exhibits classic varietal characters of blackcurrants and bramble fruit, with a touch of graphite on the nose. Approachable now, but will continue to age well for years to come.
100% Cabernet Franc.
2019 ChardonnayWhite Wine
The most ripe and concentrated Chardonnay yet from Antietam Creek VIneyards. The warm and dry vintage produced aromas of hay and citrus while barrel aging contributed subtle spice and a rich mouthfeel due to the practice of bâtonnage, the periodic stirring of yeast lees in the barrel. For 2019 we reduced the percentage of wine put through the secondary malolactic fermentation. This resulted in retaining more of the grape's natural acidity. Aged in 100% French oak barrels for 8 months.
SangriaWhite Wine Blend
White wine sangria made with with natural flavors of peach, lime and lemon.
2017 Antietam Reserve (wine club only)
2017 Antietam Reserve (wine club only)Red Wine Blend
A very ripe vintage, showing with a pop of cassis, bing cherry, and cocoa on the nose. The palate is medium bodied, bright, with a strong backbone of oak spice and tannin. Enjoy decanted, with plenty of aeration.
The vintage blessed us with an abundant crop that allowed us to make enough wine for our first varietal bottling. Vibrant aromas of red fruit supported by slight floral characters. The palate reveals a light and lively body with gentle tannins. The fruit is sourced from our estate vineyard planted on clay and limestone, just like in Pinot's native Burgundy. Not fined or filtered. 100% Pinot Noir.

2016 Antietam ReserveRed Wine Blend
