At Adams County Winery, grapes mature in rich Pennsylvanian soil before traveling to visitors' palates to teach them the secrets of matching food to wine. During Creative Wine & Food Pairing classes, expert oenophiles teach students how to match brews to their meals without having to sign their refrigerators up for an online dating service. Learn to divine the weight of food and wine, then use your newfound expertise to choose what to serve at home or order at restaurants. Conventional pairings illuminate how to match white wines with chicken or fish, and nonconventional pairings showcase each libation's diversity. Flavors dance across palates as pupils sample traditional Pennsylvanian eats, sip Adams County Winery's eclectic wines, and craft tiny dartboards out of discarded corks.

Detour Winery is not a big-name brand, but this smallish quality is part of the estate's charm. The other part is its location in the shadow of Catoctin Mountain. Here, close enough to Mother Nature to steal her purse, travelers can stop and savor life in the presence of wildflowers, grapes, pavilions, and softball fields.
The proprietor, Daniel Tamminga, cultivate award-winning wines—their current offerings cover all the bases from fruit and dessert wines to reds, whites, and blushes. But they also cultivate a healthy community with wine festivals, youth athletic-program sponsorships, and a summer concert series. They welcome weddings and corporate events onto their property and routinely host winemaking classes to help out new brewers, much to the horror of unstomped grapes everywhere.
