After years of work, we have completed renovations of our 1903 barn. The upper level is open to the public as a tasting room; the lower stone level is dedicated to wine processing and aging. This barn is a stunner: hand-hewn chestnut beams, post-and-peg construction, soaring rafters, and a full view of the rolling hills beyond.

We are in the heart of a major historical area within 1½  hours of Washington DC and Baltimore. You can plan an afternoon visit out to our winery or make a whole weekend out of it. There is so much to do here, you won’t know where to start. Here are a few of our favorites:

Historical Sites

Antietam National Battlefield, our neighbor. Site of a major Civil War battle that stands today as the single bloodiest confrontation in our nation’s history. The Visitors’ Center is terrific, with information, ranger talks, and more. You can drive through the battlefield or walk the many trails that have been created in fields and wooded areas. And as you leave the battlefield’s southern end, you drive right to our doorstep.

Shepherdstown, just 5 miles over the Potomac River. Charming town with craft stores and a farmers’ market.

Places to stay

Want to make a weekend of it? In Sharpsburg, we recommend these proprietors:

Inn at Antietam (Bed & Breakfast)

Jacob Rohrbach Inn (Bed and Breakfast)

Antietam Guest House (Vacation Rental)

Outdoor Action

C&O Canal. Running 185 miles from Cumberland to Washington, DC, this lovely canal and towpath offer excellent biking and walking in summer shade or autumn foliage. It passes within 2 miles of our winery.

Appalachian Trail, the longest hiking-only footpath in the world, ranging from Maine to Georgia. It passes over South Mountain in Boonsboro, 10 miles from our winery.

Canoeing and Tubing. Several local tour operators can take you down Antietam Creek or the Potomac River for a refreshing float on a hot summer’s day.

 

Treats

Nutters, in Sharpsburg. Best ice cream around. Old-timey, and very much worth the (often) long line.
