Recently voted #1 activity in Portland, Maine on TripAdvisor. Host 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 experience. Guests arriving at a Wine Wise walks, sailings in Casco Bay, restaurant event, or private home event are presented with a series of wines to taste and participate in discussions about each, through a rich, rewarding, and fun wine education experience.
    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 distinct grape varietals and wine making regions.
  • Learn what to expect from certain terms on a wine label when selecting your next bottle of wine.
Wine Wise public and private events
In addition to Wine Wise public events, Certified Wine Expert, Erica Archer, can work with you to create a fun and memorable private event to entertain your clients, friends, and family in your home, office, local restaurant or a unique site such as a local art gallery, beautiful garden or waterside location.
