About this Event

TOGETHER WINE SAIL

Together is an intimate community of women in business sharing stories and promoting our work in a supportive environment. Together's bi-monthly events inspire and inform and are lead by women in our community. Whether running for political office or opening their own businesses - women are taking charge. Together creates a space for like-minded entrepreneurs to gather.

On September 18, join Together, a women-only business networking community, for their September speaking event ... a special sunset wine sail with Sommelier Erica Archer of Wine Wise. Leave your stilettos behind. Bring your boat shoes!

Erica will share the story of her path to becoming an entrepreneur. How she always chose the path less followed, set big goals for herself to start a business, an action plan in how to achieve her goals, and started her business Wine Wise__now in its ninth year, in her hometown of Portland, Maine.

Your ticket includes inspiring conversations during this two-hour wine sail with five delicious wines, a beautiful spread of cheeses, crackers and fruit, and incredible company and conversation with like-minded entrepreneurs.

Space is limited, so reserve your spot early.

Please note: this Together Wine Sail is a special networking event for women in business.

WHERE TO MEET / ARRIVAL TIME

Maine Sailing Adventures/The Frances is located on the Maine State Pier at 56 Commercial Street (where Commercial Street meets Franklin Street). The signage from the road is not so great. Casco Bay Lines is right there as well. Walk right on to the Maine State Pier (past gate 5 of the Casco Bay Ferry Terminal). On the pier, to the right, you will see two sheds for two sailing companies. Please wait by the Maine Sailing Adventures/Frances shed. You do not need to check in there. We will come to get everyone to board the sailboat Frances 20 minutes before our scheduled departure.

Please arrive no later than 5:40 to be in line for our walk to the boat. Traffic into Portland can be quite heavy so be sure to allow extra time. Old Port vehicle and pedestrian traffic is a major challenge. We suggest you avoid driving on Commercial Street.

If by chance you do arrive later than 20 minutes before departure, you will find that we have already made our way to the boat for boarding and departure. You might be able to catch-up. After the second shed you will see the gangway to walk down to the dock. Proceed down the gangway to the dock and walk to the end of the dock to The Frances. We will be leaving the dock at 6pm sharp.

YOUR SOMMELIER

Archer is a true oenophile, having obtained high levels of certification in her field. In 2010, she was awarded the Wine Spirit and Education Trust Level Three Advanced Certification in Wines and Spirits (with merit), became a Sommelier in the American Court of Master Sommeliers, and received her Certified Wine Professional award from the Culinary Institute of America in St. Helena, California. Erica is the principal of Wine Wise, a wine education and events service and is skilled at creating truly creative and memorable wine experiences that take guests beyond a typical tasting with her intimate understanding of what makes each wine unique. And she’ll do it with her trademark sense of humor.

WHAT TO WEAR

Dress in layers! It can get chilly on the water, so bring a sweater!

CANCELLATIONS

We cannot accept cancellations. If you can't attend the event, we suggest regifting your ticket to a colleague, client or woman in business.

RAIN DATE

We will not sail in the rain or heavy fog. If by chance the sail is cancelled due to inclement weather we will reschedule you on another sail or issue a refund.
