Cellardoor Winery – Vinfest 2011

Cellardoor Winery – Vinfest 2011

The Hartstone Inn’s very own Chef Michael Salmon will be preparing a course again this year at Vinfest 2011.  This event, presented in conjunction with Cellardoor Winery and Megunticook Market, begins with a dinner and dance and is followed the next day by a wide range of fun activities.  

From their website:

“This magical weekend begins Friday, September 30th at 5:30pm with a four-course dinner-dance in the Vineyard. Each course is prepared by a local star chef and paired with Cellardoor wines. Dinner is followed by dessert and a very special performance by R&B singer Kenny ‘Babyface’ Edmonds. Saturday festivities begin at 10am and include grape stomping, a home winemaking competition, food and wine pairings, live music, cooking demonstrations by local star chefs, and many more surprises. This is the time of the year to celebrate the harvest and Maine’s beautiful fall weather.
