We hope you’re as excited as we are for the 22nd annual Autumn Wine Tasting. Southern Maryland’s favorite event is the place to be this September, and we’re giving you a sneak preview of everything you need to know for this year’s event: 

Date, Time, and Location

This year’s event will once again take place on the grounds of the historic Port Tobacco Courthouse on Saturday, September 7th.

This historic venue provides the perfect backdrop for an evening of food, wine, and fundraising for a great cause.

The event goes from 6pm-10pm. From there, it’s not uncommon to see many of the attendees relocate to local bars and restaurants to keep the festivities going.

What to Expect at the Event

Guests will enjoy samplings of more than 30 wines, specialty beverages, an open bar, and more than a dozen cuisine stations hosted by area restaurants. Guests will also have access to a cigar lounge as well as a silent auction that features a wide variety of unique memorabilia, collectibles, and experiences, courtesy of our sponsors and generous donors.
