About Your Experience
As an urban winery we have made the choice to source rather than grow our own grapes. Our

Yes. All of our wines are vegan, we do not use any animal products in the winemaking process.

Yes. The Urban Winery’s main focus is on wine and we carry over 30 wines that we produce here at the winery. We also carry a number of other Maryland wineries and an eclectic assortment of international wines but if you are feeling like drinking something else this evening there are other options. We also feature Maryland craft brews and local distillery products in our tasting room and in the wine shop. You won’t find any international mass produced brands here though and we do not offer traditional bar style cocktail service in our tasting room.
No outside food or beverages may be brought in or consumed on our premises.
