“It is such a pleasure to be a part of this annual event that brings together three of the best parts of Portland; tremendous food, excellent wine, and incredible music.” – Maestro Robert Moody

Our annual Wine Dinner brings together fine wine, five of Portland’s top chefs, excellent music, and one-of-a-kind auction items that together create an unforgettable evening. This is the PSO’s largest fundraiser of the year, and all funds raised are put towards helping us achieve our mission of serving our community by enriching lives through music.

This year, we will be featuring Austrian, French, and German wines from Schatzi Wines. This event promises to be a culinary experience of world-class food paired with superb wines. Chefs, representing the best Maine has to offer in creative cuisine, will prepare each course to complement the wine selections. Our chefs for this year’s event include:

Sam Hayward: Fore Street and Scales, Portland
Brian Hill: Francine Bistro

Krista Kern Desjarlais: The Purple House, North Yarmouth and Bresca & the Honey Bee, New Gloucester
Troy Mains: Harraseeket Inn, Freeport
