VINO IN VOGUE
Saturday, September 7, 12-4PM, Aliceanna Street
Join us for an afternoon of wine tasting & shopping in Harbor East at the 5th Annual Vino in Vogue!
We couldn’t dream of a better way to spend a Saturday … Taste wines from neighborhood restaurants as you stroll through the neighborhood, shopping and sipping as you go (this is Harbor East, after all)! This not-to-be-missed event is perfect for both serious wine enthusiasts as well as tasting novices simply looking to mix, mingle and imbibe!
Tasting tables will line the sidewalks of Harbor East, with sommeliers and wine experts offering pours of various wines from their respective venues. Guests will have the opportunity to taste and explore different varietals, blends, and regions. Love one of the selections? Full glasses will be available for purchase.
Complimentary cheese, sweets and lite bites are offered inside retail shops, with select stores hosting special sales and promotions. Live music and lite bites make the afternoon a festive late summer affair!
Tasting Tables hosted by: Apropoe’s, BIN 604 Wine Sellers, Bond Street Social, Loch Bar, The Oceanaire, Ouzo Bay, Roy’s Baltimore and more to be announced! Beer sampling also provided by Gordon Biersch Brewery Restaurant.
Three ticket packages are available:
10 Tasting Tickets – $35 (early bird $30 through 7/31, on-site $40)
15 Tasting Tickets – $45 (early bird $40 through 7/31, on-site $50)

VINO IN VOGUE FAQS
Where is check-in?
Event check-in will be located at the Harbor East tent on the north side of Aliceanna Street mid-block between S. President & S. Exeter Streets. Here, ticketed guests will receive their signature tasting glass and a booklet of tasting tickets (10, 15, or 20 depending on your ticket package) which you can then redeem at any restaurant tasting station. A map of the tasting station locations as well as information on shopping sales and events will also be available.
Please note on-site tickets will also be sold via the Harbor East tent. Tickets are limited – cash and debit/credit will be accepted.
How do I redeem the tasting tickets?
Our participating venues will set up tasting stations along the sidewalks in the heart of Harbor East’s shopping district. Each venue will be pouring at least 3 wines to taste at their respective stations. One tasting ticket = one pour of one wine. Redeem your tasting ticket with the restaurant staff and enjoy swirling, sniffing and sampling! Love one of the selections? Full glasses will be available for purchase directly with each venue.
Should we plan on being there the full four hours?
That depends! The wine tasting portion of the event will not take four hours to “complete”. However, if you want to allow time for plenty of shopping, and perhaps lunch at one of our restaurants, you can certainly make an afternoon of it! Sip a little, shop a little, repeat. This also means that guests do not have to arrive promptly at noon. It’s Saturday…we’re tasting wine…it’s a leisurely sort of affair!
What about the shopping?
Let’s not forget about that! Enjoy complimentary cheese & sweets, plus shopping events at participating retailers! Check back for a full list of shopping events. Most specials will also be included in your event program. For a full list of shops, click HERE.

View the parking map HERE.
Do you accept debit & credit cards?
We will accept both cash and debit/credit cards for on-site tasting ticket sales through Harbor East. For full glasses of wine, restaurant vendors’ policies will vary – we encourage you to bring cash should they not be able to accept debit/credit cards on-site.

Will public restrooms be available?
A restroom trailer will be onsite for event attendees. It will be located on the southwest corner of Aliceanna and Exeter Street, around the corner from South Moon Under.
Is the event rain or shine?
We hope to have a gorgeous late summer day for our 5th Annual Vino in Vogue but please note the event is rain or shine, so break out those Hunter Boots and snazzy galoshes! In the event of extreme weather, Vino in Vogue will move to the following day, Sunday, September 8th from 12-4PM. Please note we will honor refund requests if the date is moved. It tends to be windy down here near the water – layers and sunglasses are encouraged (and tres chic!).
