Wine Dinners & B.A.R.N Backstories


In 2018 we launched our 5th year of offering our summer series of wine and  craft beer dinners. These are public events by reservation only. Five courses and five wines/beers in our rustic barn setting; prepared by a guest chef with locally sourced food (whatever is freshest!) for each event. In addition we introduce and talk about different wines we've discovered as well as the grapes, regions, and styles of production (our attempt to stretch past chardonnay and cabernet!).

In addition we have a unique offering to round out the 'living well' experience. In between the entree and dessert courses we've invited a guest speaker to give a 10-12 minute talk on one of our B.A.R.N. subjects (B-business, A-arts, R-recreation, N=n-richment, n-tertainment, n-spiration).

In the past we’ve spanned the B.A.R.N. spectrum; a former Navy Blue Angel, several of Maine's most successful entrepreneurs, an award-winning insider from the music industry, what goes on in the mind of a renown Maine artist, and insider info on what happens at 37,000’ behind the cockpit door.
