Join with Sommelier, Erica Archer + a very talented Chef, for an incredible virtual wine dinner-for-two delivered to your door—centered around two beautiful wines and delicious food pairings. That’s right, 1-2 hours before logging on to our event you’ll receive your dinner-for-two box containing the two featured wines and food courses each in its container with easy instructions to either place in your refrigerator, freezer, or set to be ready for our first course.
We are excited to have you join us for this incredible virtual wine dinner as we gather online from the comforts of home—with two wine glasses in hand—to discuss the two featured bottles of wine and delicious dishes from the Chef… all while creating community and supporting small businesses and local purveyors. Due to the nature of this event, we regret that we cannot accommodate food substitutions. Add Sommelier Erica Archer’s curated wine delivery service.
Price is all-inclusive of this incredible dinner-for-two, 2 bottles of wine, tax, service, download materials, event experience, and delivery. “Seating” is limited to 15 deliveries of wine-dinner-for-two in the Greater Portland area. Our delivery area includes Cape Elizabeth, Cumberland Foreside, Falmouth, Gorham, Old Orchard Beach, Portland, Scarborough, South Portland, Westbrook, and Yarmouth. Live outside of our Greater Portland delivery area? No problem. You may meet us for contact-less curbside pick-up at 3:00 pm at Sur Lie. Just make sure to put a note in the comments section at checkout that you’ll do 3:00 curbside at Sur Lie. For delivery and curbside, you can rest assured that we are exceeding all requirements for your safety and the safety of our teams in preparing, pick-up, and delivering.
Your Sommelier Archer is a true oenophile, having obtained high levels of certification in her field. In 2010, she was awarded the Wine Spirit and Education Trust Level Three Advanced Certification in Wines and Spirits (with merit), became a Sommelier in the American Court of Master Sommeliers, and received her Certified Wine Professional award from the Culinary Institute of America in St. Helena, California. Erica is the principal of Wine Wise, a wine education and events service and is skilled at creating truly creative and memorable wine experiences that take guests beyond a typical tasting with her intimate understanding of what makes each wine unique. And she’ll do it with her trademark down to earth style and sense of humor.
Where do we meet? On your computer screen at 6 pm on the day of the event. You’ll download the Zoom app and access our event through a link that we will send you. What do we need? Set your dinner table with a fork, knife, spoon, napkin, water, and two wine glasses per person so each of you has one glass each of the two wines to enjoy through the first three savory courses. You’ll also need a corkscrew, the downloaded materials for this event, and a computer with internet access, sound, and video capability. Be sure to download the ZOOM app before this event as that is the platform we will be using so that we can all see and hear each other. Tell us about delivery. We’ll deliver your box of goodies between 3:00-5:30 pm the day of this event. Please include your greater Portland delivery address in the comments section at checkout if they are different from your billing address. Or let us know that you’ll meet us at Sur Lie at 3:00 for curbside pick-up. We are vigilant about abiding by all safety and physical distancing requirements for your safety and that of ourselves and our teams. Cancellations/Reschedules/No Shows Because of our size, and the need to purchase the wine and food to accommodate the number of tickets sold, we will be able to refund you only if we can re-sell your tickets (minus the $30.00 credit card transactions we have to pay) OR reschedule you to a different event (there is no credit card transaction fee in this case). There are no refunds or reschedules for no shows or if we are not able to resell your tickets. Makes sense, right?
