WINE ON-LINE FEBRUARY 9, 2023

Join us virtually via Zoom at 5:30 pm on February 9, 2023, for a fun hour of wine tasting, information, and trivia! Local wine gurus Lani Dietz and Betsy Ross will guide us through the program with ideas, pairings, and educational tidbits as we sip wines selected by our two experts. This will be a Zoom presentation moderated by Mary-Lou Boucouvalas, Library Director.

For anyone new to this very popular monthly event, Lani and Betsy choose the pair of wines prior to the event. We “experience” wines from a specific country or new varietal each time. All participants are encouraged to purchase the month’s wines from Maine & Vine or Wine House on Maine (both in Kennebunk).

Please call the Library at (207) 967-2778 to register so that we can send you the Zoom link on the day of the event. The best part is, you don’t have to worry about driving!
