Join us for our last Wine Sail of the year in Maine's most colorful season on board the 74-foot gaff-rigged topsail sloop, Frances, that was built by her Captains and crew on Portland's waterfront. You're in for an incredible wine education experience with Sommelier Erica Archer, CWP, WSET Advanced as you sail through Maine’s beautiful Casco Bay with scenic views of Maine lighthouses, islands, and waterways while indulging in 5 different fine Champagnes... and we'll pair each one with a selection and fresh Maine oysters shucked right on board. You'll walk away with knowing how different vineyards, laws, and producers impact Champagne styles and quality, gain confidence knowing how to evaluate, select, serve, and pair Champagne and describe what you smell and taste. We can’t think of a better way to end the season.
