Portland Wine Week

Kick off summer with a week-long festival

Portland's new festival includes pairing and performance events, incredible wine dinners, tastings, educational classes and seminars, special menus, a passport tour of dozens of local restaurants and their wine lists; and other happenings that feature wine, food, art, and fun. Presented by Wine Wise, a local wine education and events company, Portland Wine Week is crafted as a boutique experience for wine enthusiasts of all types - from the casual wine lover to the serious oenophile. From a spectacular opening party, to sparkling sunset wine sails in Casco Bay harbor, to a closing gala 5 course wine dinner, Portland Wine Week will leave you breathless.

June 18-24, 2018

Wine Dinners

Taste the best of Portland's bounty and the creativity of local chefs paired with wines from around the globe. The city’s best restaurants will strut their stuff with world-class wines from notable importers and award-winning winemakers. Currently scheduled dinners include a night of rosé at Sur Lie; a focus on the new release and library wines of Channing Daughters winery at Hugo’s; a southern Italian white wine and seafood pairing at Scales; an evening of natural wines at Piccolo; a tour of Burgundy at Lolita; and an exploration of Spanish wines at Chaval.

Pairings, Meet-and-Greets, & Classes

Other events include a meet and greet with an Austrian wine expert at Central Provisions, a pasta making and wine pairing class at Solo Italiano, a wine pairing lunch with Bangs Island Mussels at Scales, and an historical wine list exhibition and talk from Don Lindgren of Rabelais Books. Tickets for some events are limited.

Wine Wise’s own signature events—three distinctive sunset wine sails in Casco Bay and a wine education walk in the Old Port featuring Mediterranean favorites—also will be featured during Portland Wine Week.
