Victoria Schassler is one of the City of Baltimore’s most passionate and active business women. The fun loving wine shop owner of Spirits of Mount Vernon loves sharing the passion and deliciousness of fine wine with people in her neighborhood.

Before owning a wine shop, Victoria had worked in the human ressources department for Marriott International for 15 years. In 2004, she left her job and started renovating the MacGillivray’s Pharmacy building, which was expected to be demolished, to turn it into her shop.

Through the Spirited Woman in Entrepreneurship award, we want to celebrate Victoria’s achievements and her dedication to make others feel welcomed. Why not join us for a delightful lunch and afternoon dedicated to Celeste and 16 other inspiring Baltimoreans?
