Join with us for our scenic brunch and sunset wine sails on board the immaculate 74-foot gaff-rigged topsail, Frances, built by her Captains and crew on Portland’s waterfront. Sommelier Erica Archer, CWP, WSET Advanced, will guide you in a tasting and exploration of the wines of renown regions of the world as you sail through Maine’s beautiful Casco Bay with scenic views of Maine lighthouses, islands, and waterways… all while indulging in a wine class.

 

You’ll walk away with knowing how regional influences impact wine styles and quality, gain confidence knowing how evaluate, select, serve, and pair wines and describe what you smell and taste, and find some new quality wines to add to your repertoire.

  • Taste and learn about some delicious wines from renown wine regions of the world
  • Find out what makes each wine region unique and the style of wine they are known for
  • Discuss major wine styles, grape varieties, regions, trends and more
  • Learn what to expect from certain terms on a wine label when selecting your next wine
