“Life’s journey is determined, in part, by the choices we make, the paths we take and the direction we travel. When you make the decision to visit the vineyard and winery, take a road less traveled; to follow a path that detours you from your daily routine and fast pace life, then you have arrived at a truly unique destination that will enhance your life’s journey forever. This is the legacy of Detour Winery! Discover—Reflect—Savour
Come and discover our unique blends of vinifera, American and French hybrid wines, fruit and dessert wines, ice wines and champagnes. Discover the beauty of the vineyard, the estate and Catoctin Mountains vista as well as explore the rich civil war history of the area and nearby communities.
Come and reflect on the serenity of the land, your family and loved ones. Let this special place be your personal sanctuary to reinvest in the most important people of your life!
Come and savour this moment in time, the beauty and tranquility of this place and the bouquet and taste of each wine.
It is our personal life quest to ensure that Detour Winery remains your destination of choice; that all our wine presentations are unique and exciting and the vineyard grounds remain a showcase for future generations to enjoy and explore!
You are always welcome here and we look forward to serving you at our annual festivals and concert series, gourmet dinner and wine tasting pairings or festivities and programs at the Detour Playing Fields. Any comments or suggestions you may have to improve your experience are always welcome too.”
