The Black Point Inn, located in Prouts Neck, on Maine’s southern coast is hosting its annual food and wine lovers' weekend, Oct. 28-30, offering an Italian slant and a package deal. The two-night, all-inclusive package goes for $639 a couple. On Friday, guests are greeted with a Bisol Prosecco and hors d’ouevres reception and get to sample more proseccos before having dinner in the inn’s Chart Room, served with Italian wines.
The next day, after an Italian breakfast, they can explore the area where fabled artist Winslow Homer did some of his most notable work. In the afternoon, there is an Italian wine tasting, followed in the evening by Chef Will Benner’s six-course meal incorporating local ingredients paired with even more Italian wines.
