Event Details

Join Sommelier Erica Archer and Chef Tim Labonte on an unforgettable land and sea adventure of delicious proportions.

Includes the following:

  • A select wine and grilled seafood tapas pairing from Bluefin restaurant in the Portland Harbor Hotel's lovely garden,
  • a sea voyage to Great Diamond Island on a UB85 charter boat (with more wine and an appetizer, of course),
  • even more wine and surf and turf tapas on the patio at the Inn at Diamond Cove as well as in the hotel's Diamond's Edge restaurant, and
  • finally, dessert on the return voyage to the mainland.

Along the way you'll hear about the history of Fort McKinley and Diamond Cove.

Brought to you by Bluefin, The Portland Harbor Hotel, Inn at Diamond Cove, Diamond's Edge, and Wine Wise.
