6 of us came for a birthday dinner (4 had never been before) - we had the BEST time! It's a fun and hip atmosphere; perfect place for our group ... we were so glad we came. The small plates and toasts were terrific and the wine was even more so. Can't wait to come back. Hope the menu continues to keep and add more plant-based items.

First time in and it was such a nice surprise. Staff was so friendly and engaging and informative (especially JR and Claire). Food was spectacular and we did the full tasting of the wines and all of them were excellent. We love Spanish food and dry wines so this was perfect for us. We came back the very next day with friends. Will be a regular spot for us for sure.

Totally recommend this spot! It’s versatile for whatever occasion, we went at 4pm for a Happy Hour and were the first in the door as they opened. The staff was lovely, attentive, and very knowledgeable about all the items on the menu. The vermouth cocktails were something new to me and now I am a vermouth fan! The wine selections were also great for summer. Will definitely return and recommend!

Went for their happy hour on Wednesday. Last minute change of plans so I ended up going alone, the bartenders were so friendly. I got their brut sparking wine and the grapefruit cocktail, can’t remember the name. For the board they allow you to choose 3 items and I got the manchego, smoked salmon, and jamon iberico and it was tasty and filling, couldn’t finish it. I also ordered a glass of their 2019 rose which wasn’t too sweet which I loved

Vibe and ambiance is amazing. All the staff members worked very well together. We had 4 different people help us order and bring out our food. Everyone was very knowledgeable of the menu. Charcuterie board was good, GET THE CANDIED SALMON! Staff member suggested it, changed my life lol. All the wine and cocktails were delicious and fresh. They just need to put up a curtain or room divider for the office space and the look would be perfect.

Fantastic to have a solid winery in Baltimore that knows what it's doing. The wine is excellent, their Vermu (vermouth) is delightful and the food is delicious. Try different toasts, bar snacks, especially the smoked fish dip and finish with the stracciatella, fig and honey toast. Delicious!

Super fun place. The overhead string Lights were flickering which was distracting us. Overall it was pretty dark. We turned on phone flashlights to read the menu. But the wines were all great (we tried a red a white and a rose) and the food was all delicious and pretty reasonably priced.

Honestly, I booked the Wine Collective without really researching/looking it up, but I still had a great time with my friends. When we arrived, it was a little hard to find the location because the sign was covered by the cars parked in front, but it ended up being the last door. The inside is so beautiful--so much so, my friends and I joked about having a small party/wedding there (when the pandemic is officially done) and we made sure to record everything we enjoyed so we could go back! There were only two issues we faced: first, the spanish chips with aioli and hot sauce are literally just lays potato chips with very simple aioli and hot sauce and it tasted as bad as it looked so I ended up ordering the Salmon and Manchego cheese sandwich and THAT was sooooo delicious! Our second issue was our first server; she was dismissive, a little rude, and condescending; despite actively looking for her to re-order some things--including the great drinks they had--it felt like she went out of her way to ignore us. Seeing as we were her only black/brown table, our next best guess was that she didn't feeling comfortable with us. The server that took over (long wavy hair and an amazing attitude) was THE BEST! She constantly checked in on us, asked us if we wanted to order more drinks when she noticed our glasses were empty, and overall, she was just the nicest person we ever had the pleasure of meeting! Overall, the food (outside of the Angry Chips appetizer) was great (including their breads!!!!), the drinks were flavorful and just enough alcohol for a mid-day visit to the winery, and the beautiful setting was the cherry on top! Highly recommend!

I found the wine collective on open table and because of the good reviews I decided to try it. It was even better than the reviews led me to believe! This is my new favorite place in Baltimore and it’s long past due that we have a place like this here. The owner, Felipe, talked to us during the evening and was so pleasant and informative. The wines were delicious and so was the food. The cheeseboard reminded me of my European travels. It was beautifully prepared and presented and tasted delicious. I was hesitant to even write this because I don’t want it to get so crowded that I can’t get a reservation.

This is a wonderful addition to the Union Collective and the Baltimore scene. The appetizer toasts were mouth watering, and the cheese board fun and tasty. We will be returning frequently - so many goodies to try, and good wine besides.

Last night my husband and I did our typical Friday date night at the Wine Collective. It was our first time and our experience was anything but typical. We enjoyed 2 wine flights, a delicious cheese/charcuterie/cured fish board, a mouth-watering salmon melt sandwich, and addictive smoked fish dip. Our dessert consisted of unique vermouth cocktails. We definitely will be back! It is conveniently located near a distillery and brewery as well.
