Our Picks for Wine Lovers

Grab your friends and plan a relaxed afternoon, weekend, or night out with any one of these local experiences for wine connoisseurs (or anyone who appreciates a good glass).

1. June 12-18 is a week full of incredible wine sails, brunches, lunches, dinners, seminars, and special weeklong offerings at many of Portland's best restaurants.

2. Join me with a fine wine in hand for a scenic sail through the pristine Casco Bay on board the 74-foot immaculate sailboat, Frances. 

Weekend Wine Sails -

3. This acclaimed West End restaurant is where you'll find me on a day off, sipping wine and enjoying incredible French and Spanish-inspired cuisine.

Chaval - 58 Pine St., Portland

4. A nice place to hang out and have a glass of the truly delicious Victoria or Fête Maine Rhubarb wines. 

Eighteen-Twenty Wines - 219 Anderson St., Portland
