Strawbery Banke Museum will host Vintage & Vine, its annual “wine festival in historic style,” on Saturday, September 6, 2014, from 4 to 7 p.m. Presented in partnership with the New Hampshire Liquor and Wine Outlets, Vintage & Vine 2014 offers guests an opportunity to sample an extensive selection of fine wines from around the world, hand-selected by New Hampshire wine brokers, along with imaginative cuisine prepared by top Seacoast-area chefs.
Vintage & Vine emphasizes local sourcing, local chefs and the best locally-available wines. Throughout the event, guests may order wines and receive a special event discount of 15 percent off any order of six or more bottles.
“Each year, thanks to the efforts of the Museum’s trustees in producing this event, Vintage & Vine fills Strawbery Banke with great food, great wine and great company, all dedicated to the goal of sustaining the Museum as a place to learn and a place to gather for the community,” said Lawrence J. Yerdon, President and CEO of Strawbery Banke Museum. “Guests sample a selection of hundreds of fine wines and gourmet items created by the Seacoast’s finest chefs while mingling in the landscape of historic homes and heirloom gardens of Portsmouth’s past. Vintage & Vine is indeed a celebration of the vintage and the vine.”
Taste It, Love It, Buy It! A key feature of Vintage & Vine is the 15% discount offered on any six bottles or more of wine ordered at the event. The New Hampshire Liquor & Wine Outlet brokers provide tasting notes and help guests select wines and place wine orders. A new mobile web app will help guests record their preferences and place orders during the event. Guests pay for the wine when they pick up their orders at any New Hampshire Liquor & Wine Outlet (store locator: http://www.liquorandwineoutlets.com/stores/store_locator).
The Vintage & Vine Auction and Raffle features selections ranging from vacations and sporting events to jewelry and entertainment. Vintage & Vine guests bid on a photo safari in South Africa, a stay in a Tuscan villa and a Montreal getaway weekend. Other special auction items include gift certificates from some of the Seacoast-area’s finest restaurants, spa packages, children’s parties, “behind the scenes” tours with Seacoast celebrities, fishing excursions, Red Sox tickets, golf at area clubs, landscaping consultation, artwork, antique maps, tickets to performing arts events and other attractive items. The Auction offers selections suitable for groups of friends, family, as gifts and for personal relaxation.
