Winter Wine Tastings :: Maine Wine Enthusiasts

Then Join us for “Summer Wine Time” at The Captain Lord Mansion

Join Bev and I one evening each week throughout the season for our complimentary innkeeper’s “Wine Time” at 5:00 pm.  We’ll taste varieties of wines from our The Captain’s Wine List, as well as trying new wines recommended by our distributor’s representative.  He is a young man with exceptional knowledge due to his extensive travels to wine producing areas all over the world.   We’ll begin these “Wine Time” get-togethers in June when our gardens are in bloom.  We have a delightful bar area located next to our waterfall garden which was created last spring.  This will be a great time for meeting other guests and hearing wonderful tales from 30 years of inn keeping!Fountain

Winter Wine Tastings

During the winter, we enjoyed the company of many of our guests who availed themselves of our monthly “Winter Wine Tastings”.  Our travels with our palettes took us to Italy, California and France.  We are planning to repeat these tastings each month next winter beginning in December.  The first one will be on Saturday, December 19th.  These complimentary tastings of 4 different regional varieties begin at 5:00 pm and usually last about an hour and a half, giving guests ample time for going out to dinner to one of our fine local restaurants.  The January tasting will be Saturday, January 2nd; February will be Saturday, February 6th; March will be Saturday, March 6th and the last one on Saturday, April 3rd.  We look forward to discovering the wines of New Zealand, South African, Spanish and New York State.

What could be more fun for a true wine enthusiast than a complementary tasting of different wines in a romantic atmosphere with a knowledgeable host and good company?  Bev and I look forward to these gatherings as much as our guests do.  We hope that you will plan a romantic escape to the Captain Lord Mansion or our sister property, The Captain’s Garden House.  See you soon.  Your innkeeper, Rick Litchfield
