Wine Camp in Camden, Maine
For those looking for a truly unique get-away, the Camden Harbour Inn and Cellardoor Winery in midcoast Maine have partnered to create the experience of a lifetime: Wine Camp. Highlighted in the Wall Street Journal's June article on "Camps for Grown-Ups," the 2009 Cellardoor Wine Camp features hands-on winemaking education paired with a resplendent stay at the luxurious Camden Harbour Inn, gourmet meals, and quintessential coastal Maine excursions such as schooner day-trips and leaf-peeping hikes up Mt. Battie. The Wine Camp will be held from October 12-16.
"Based on the immense popularity of our series of Winemaking Classes this summer, Maine residents and visitors are clearly enjoying truly 'experiential' retreats this year," said Bettina Doulton, owner of Cellardoor Winery. "Wine Camp offers just that and more in a relaxed, fun and comfortable environment."
Raymond Brunyanszki, owner of the Camden Harbour Inn added, "Campers will be pampered during their stay, and will literally leave with a truly unique souvenir - wine made by their own hands. It's the best of all worlds - a luxurious learning vacation."
