Wolfe’s Neck Center – Maine Wild Wine Fest
May 20 @ 10:00 am - 3:30 pm
Corks will be popping to celebrate the Maine Wild Wine Fest (MWWF), back for its second year on Saturday, May 20 at the Wolfe’s Neck Center Mallet Barn in Freeport, Maine.
Organized by Ned Swain, of Devenish Wines (www.devenishwine.com) and Margot Mazur , wine educator and writer of The Fizz (https://thefizz.substack.com/), the event will feature noted U.S.-based natural winemakers and international importers in a gathering centered on communication and community. Currently, there are over 35 importers and producers participating.
The one-day festival will feature two attendance sessions: 10:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. and 1:00 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. Attendance will be limited to 180 people per session, providing ample space to talk in-depth with the winemakers and importers. New for 2023, the event will also offer two producer-led workshops that will cover winemaking at home and abroad. Check the MMWF website for workshop updates.
“Maine’s wine community continues to evolve, and we’re thrilled to expand our wine circle with another year of the Maine Wine Wild Fest,” says co-host Margot Mazur. “MWWF will bring producers and importers focused on minimal intervention winemaking to the center of the conversation, highlighting our local makers in a gorgeous setting. Attendees will have the opportunity to meet and chat with winemakers and importers while taking in the beauty of our local region.”
The concept of natural wine aligns with the mission of understanding where food and beverages come from, and how to produce products more responsibly. Maine Wild Wine Fest will feature many of the people who have shaped this movement in America, learning from them firsthand, and tasting delicious and very special wines.
Satellite events with area bars will lead up to (and after) the event. Check the MMWF website regularly.
