Treat Dad right this Father's Day with a scenic trip to Union for great food and drinks. Once again, we will be teaming up with Sweetgrass Farm Winery and Distillery to offer Dad a memorable day of wine, spirits, and cheese.
And, what better way to spend Father's Day than by having a pig roast! To add a little excitement to the event, the winemakers at Savage Oakes and Sweetgrass Farm Winery, Elmer and Keith, have challenged each other to a cook-off. Each will be vying for bragging rights while serving up their own pork masterpiece and raising money for a good cause. We will be accepting donations for the Come Spring Food Pantry and encouraging votes for the Savage Oakes pork creation. (We promise not to stuff the ballot box.)
We will be hosting Appleton Creamery, an artisan cheese maker who has been winning awards with their cheeses since 1996. Appleton Creamery has a diverse selection of cheeses produced from the milk of their own herd of goats, as well as both sheep and cow's milk. Come experience their fan favorite, chevre, in a variety of flavors including rounds marinated in olive oil with roasted garlic and herbs paired with our award winning wines.
Then travel 5 miles through the scenic hills of Union to Sweetgrass Farm Winery and Distillery, producer of wines, ports, and spirits including the popular Back River Gin, to see what combinations they have planned for you.
As always, winemakers and cheesemakers are on hand to discuss their wines, cheeses, and pairings. What could be better than a ride in the country, Maine cheese, pork and wine?
