We create and deliver memorable wine events for restaurants, wineries, wine retailers, fundraisers, corporate clients and private parties. We love wine and we enjoy helping your customers, colleagues and friends taste and learn about wine in a fun, dynamic and unpretentious atmosphere. Our events are designed for everyone, whether wine novice or connoisseur.
Maine Wine Events goes beyond a typical wine tasting and engages groups with interactive discussions on wines, grapes and regions. We bring wine - and your event - to life with stories about the wines and winemakers, their countries and influences. We also create paired food and wine tastings, ranging from simple wine and cheese plates to nine course gourmet meals with accompanying wine flights.
Our favorite themes include “Tasting Old World and New World Wines”; “Discovering South Africa”; “Touring Italy”, “Finding Holiday Wines and Gifts for Wine Lovers”, “Enjoying California from North to South”, “Exploring Bordeaux” to name a few, and we love to create new events. We showcase wine from your wine list and shelves, or we help you create or invigorate a wine list. We enable your establishment to attract new customers or entertain existing ones, helping them to try new wines, decode wine labels and know what to expect from a grape variety or region.
We work with our clients to publicize open events. We create unique private events to entertain clients, friends or family in a home, office, meeting location, or special site. We help you host fundraisers that are unique, fun, profitable, and easy to organize.
Our fees are flexible and reasonable. First we work with you to create the right event for your guests and then help you set the optimal price. We charge either a speaking fee or we agree on a percentage of ticket sales or revenues. You choose what works for your event. For fundraisers we offer our services at no cost. Please do contact us to discuss your wine event.
