News & Events
Aside from our daily wine tastings here at the Winery, we also hold various events and classes throughout the year. From cooking classes with local chefs and aroma and pairing classes to winemaker dinners and live music and dancing, we have something to suit every palate and every plate. If you are interested in hosting an event here at the winery, please visit our 2013 Special Events Offering page.
Art Collector Maine Series
We are teaming up with Art Collector Maine to bring you a new artist every month featured at our Villa location in Rockport. For each, we will have a welcoming kick-off reception as well as a winemaker dinner featuring guest chefs.
Throughout the year, we offer various cooking classes for those who want to inspire their inner chef or who just want to have a little fun in the kitchen, and Pairings 101 classes for those who want to dive deep into the science behind food and wine pairings. We also offer various winemaking classes to take you through the various steps of home winemaking, from fermentation to bottling processes.
Sunday Food & Wine Pairings
Every Sunday from April through October, we invite you into to our beautifully renovated Farmhouse to treat yourself to a complimentary food and wine pairing with our Cellardoor staff and some very special guest chefs. These pairings are complimentary and run from 12-3 PM (no reservations needed).
