Wine and Food Pairing Education at its Best!
Recently voted #1 activity in Portland, Maine on TripAdvisor. Sommelier Erica Archer provides a thorough and enlightening educational
experience as she leads guests in a fresh interactive approach geared towards building your wine knowledge and tasting experiences.

Choose from our highly rated Wine (and food) Walks where you'll taste delicious wines with paired fresh fare at a series of great restaurants and our incredible Wine Sails where you'll enjoy scenic views of Maine lighthouses, waterways and islands while indulging in a wine class on in Casco Bay on board the 74-foot gaff-rigged topsail sloop, Frances. You'll walk away with a better understanding of wine, gain tips for pairing with food, and how to describe what you smell and taste. Plan to learn a lot about wine and have a great time doing it. We can also create a wide variety of custom wine education events for your group gathering.

    At each unique event:

  • Leave with a toolbox of wine evaluation and appreciation skills that will enable you to approach any wine comfortably.
  • Expand your ability to articulate what is going on in your wine glass.
  • Discover what to expect from different grape varietals and wine regions.
  • Learn what to expect from certain terms on a wine label when selecting your next bottle of wine.
  • Gain skills for wine and food pairing.
  • When it's time to gather.
    Whether you have company coming for a visit, a special event to plan, employees to thank for a job well done, or a group of clients to show appreciation for, we'll make your next gathering absolutely remarkable. Choose a private Wine (and food) Walk or a Wine Sail in Casco Bay. Or let us customize an event for your gathering in your home, office, a local restaurant, art gallery, island or garden setting in Maine and beyond.
