DETAILS: Join us for Portland Wine Week's Grand Opening Women in Wine Dinner: Who Paired it Better? This dinner featured 5 outstanding Maine Chefs and 10 Greater Portland Sommeliers who all happen to be women. 5 courses and 10 wines. Two Somms are paired with each Chef to present their best wine pairing with the dish to each guest. Two wines per dish. The only criteria is that all wines chosen/poured will be made by women winemakers. Dinner will be for up to 150 people on one long table out on the golf course (inside if inclement weather).

Who paired it better? You’ll thoroughly enjoy figuring that out and voting for your favorites … one beautiful wine and food pairing after another. Join for this incredible show of wine and food talent for one epic dinner outside on the Falmouth Country Club’s lush green golf course (inside if inclement weather).
