NOT YOUR AVERAGE "TASTING ROOM"
Our winery's "tasting room" (more like a warehouse than a "room") is also a Pintxo Bar conceived and run by the Pallares brothers. Enrique and Felipe grew up in Ecuador. They spent their teenage years and early twenties traveling the world as professional polo players, living in Argentina, Spain, California and many other places before they settled on the Eastern Shore of Maryland, where they started Casa Carmen, a boutique winery producing small lot craft wines.
Though in some ways it would sound as if they have lived many different “lives,” they really have spent most of their time in bars and around kitchen tables.
After so much waiting, we now have the procedures in place to safely open our doors to you!
We invite you to join us at the winery to try our amazing wines and food, learn about the winemaking process, and become part of our wine and food obsessed community.
We're open Tuesdays - Sundays from 12pm - 8pm.
We encourage you to make reservations at 443-438-7366.
We are located at the Union Collective, a hub of independent artisans, in the quirky and soulful Hampden neighborhood area of Baltimore.
Our address is 1700 W 41st Street, Suite 490, Baltimore, MD 21211.
The winery is thoughtfully designed to provide the best experience for visitors, makers, and those hoping to rent our space for a private function. Check out our beautiful Tank Cellar, Barrel Rooms, Private Tasting Room, and main Tasting Bar.
We are fortunate to have a big open space with 20 foot ceilings and over 8 foot spacing between tables. We have private barrel rooms available for reservation and even some outside seating! We have 80 feet of copper bar, and our staff has trained around the clock to bring you the best service with the highest standards of safety.
Inspired by the bars and bodegas of Spain and South America, the Pallares brothers have created a bar and menu that reflect a food-and-wine-obsessed culture with community at its center.
Similar to our winemaking philosophy, our approach to food is simple: be single-mindedly focused on quality. We use only the very best ingredients we can find and are uncompromising about this. Our sources are small production farms that use responsible practices to bring a different level of product to the table.
The menu of our Pintxo Bar is primarily based on local produce, premium Iberian tinned fish from boutique canneries, and small production charcuterie and cheeses.
All we do is forage the world of food and farms to find amazing ingredients and put them together in the best way we can, and hope that you like the results as much as we do.
