This is a big project I have been working on for months and I'm really excited that it's finally come together. I have organized with four other small wine distributors (Davine, Easterly, SoPo, and Crush) to put on a large focused wine show. These are some of the other small companies that are driving the explosion in diversity that the Maine wine market is currently undergoing, so having us all together at the same time is going to be an amazing opportunity to talk to us about what's going on in the wine world. For this format each of us will bring four wines, all Spanish. That gives us twenty unusual exciting wines: from ultra rare Priorats to rare Basque whites. Ticket sales will be capped at 70 so that it won't be too crowded and you'll still be able to take your time tasting through everything. The Salt Exchange will have small nibbles of food out and additional food for sale from the bar. Tickets will be $40 and all our profits will be donated to the Compass Project: a local non-profit that uses boat building as a hands on skills based approach to build confidence and a sense of responsibility in at risk children. Additionally 10% of the value of any wine ordered from the Old Port Wine Merchant next store will also be donated to the Compass Project. Call the Salt Exchange at 207 347 5687 to make reservations
