Lincolnville — Art Collector Maine has launched a groundbreaking dinner series in partnership with Cellardoor Winery. Called Art Collector Maine Dinner with the Artist Series, these monthly dinners celebrate the collaboration between the two entities with an intimate four-course dinner prepared by some of Maine’s most sought-after chefs, each course skillfully paired with a Cellardoor wine.

The sold-out Dec. 1 dinner was held at the Cellardoor Farmhouse where guests enjoyed a European holiday menu prepared by Chef Geoffroy Deconinck of Natalie’s at the Camden Harbour Inn. Artist Craig Mooney, whose work is being shown through Sunday, Dec. 30 at the newly renovated Cellardoor Wintery at the Villa in Rockport, was the evening’s special guest.

“It was an incredible evening of fine food and wine that celebrated the successful opening of the month-long showing of Craig Mooney’s work at the Cellardoor Villa,” said Jack Leonardi, a member of Art Collector Maine.

“We are proud to partner with the Cellardoor team on this venture and look forward to a full year of amazing experiences,” he said.
