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.
Antietam Creek Vineyards' 2015 Petit Verdot has an intense, ripe berry character on the nose, followed by classic aromas of black pepper, cedar, and graphite on the palate. A firm backbone of tannin is complemented by soft berry-jam nuances. 77% Petit Verdot, 23% Merlot.
Antietam Creek Vineyards' 2015 Antietam Reserve has a classic St. Emillion nose of black fruit and damp earth, with a slight hint of eucalyptus. The palate is round and supple with integrated tannin and support from aging in French oak barrels. This is a red blend, with 45% Merlot, 45% Cabernet Franc, and 10% Petit Verdot.
Antietam Creek Vineyards' 2015 Vidal Blanc is a semi-sweet with hints of tropical fruit, especially pineapple, on the nose. Vidal Blanc is an American hybrid varietal. Ours has 1% residual sugar, making it quite refreshing.
The Albariño grape is a Spanish varietal newly introduced to our region. Antietam Creek Vineyards' Albariño is elegant, bright, and acidic. Its aroma suggests apricot and peach, with floral notes.
Our 2015 Chardonnay was made in the classic Burgundy style with fermentation in French oak barrels. Fruit and oak spice dominate the aroma. A balanced palate with natural acidity is tempered by the softness of oak. Maloactic fermentation was blocked. 87% Chardonnay, 13% Pinot Noir.
