Everything You Need to Know About the 21st Annual Autumn Wine Tasting

2018 Autumn Wine Tasting and Silent Auction

We’re so excited to announce that our Autumn Wine Tasting and Silent Auction event is set to return for its 21st year in Southern Maryland. Here’s everything you need to know about this year’s event and the cause it’s benefiting:

What is UM Charles Regional Medical Center’s Autumn Wine Tasting?

This is an annual event that brings together an exceptional selection of wine, delectable food options, and one-of-a-kind auction items for one unforgettable evening in Southern Maryland.

Where is it being held?

It will once again be held on the grounds of the historic Port Tobacco Courthouse, located at 8430 Commerce Street, Port Tobacco, MD.

When is it?

This year’s event will take place on Saturday, September 8, from 6pm to 10pm.

Why should I attend?

With 30+ wines to sample, an open bar, cigar lounge, live music, plus more than a dozen cuisine stations to visit — all at a historic venue — it’s no secret as to why this is one of Southern Maryland’s most highly anticipated annual events. Better yet, it’s all for a great cause.
