Beyond the Grape: A Survey of Maine Wines

Explore the variety of wines that Maine vintners are producing! Attendees will enjoy a guided tasting of 5-6 Maine wines, comparing and contrasting not only the wines themselves but the fruits, vegetables and other ingredients used. Attendees will also learn about the techniques winemakers use to influence the characteristics of the wine - like "dry," "sweet," "creamy," or "fruity."

The price of your registration includes a full pour of one of your top-rated wines from the class in the Tasting Room immediately following the class.

This class is presented by Maine Tasting Center and its non-profit partner organization Maine Food and Beverage Education Center. The class will be taught by Lynda Gaines, a WSET Level 3 Certified Wine Enthusiast.


New for 2024!
