The wine lovers event of the year is back with a new twist on Oct. 19 at the Cross Insurance Center in Bangor. Along with dozens of local, national and international wines, this year Bangor Uncorked showcases 10 cocktails featuring spirits from local Maine distilleries. The spirit business is booming in Maine – here’s your chance to sample some of the best.

And for all you beer lovers (you know who you are), we'll be serving up a couple of brews again. Stay tuned to see which Maine Brewery we'll feature this year!

Sample wines from Italy, France, Australia, Spain, Portugal, Germany, South America and the United States ~ it's like traveling the world in one evening.

Chat with friends, enjoy live music, browse makeup, fashion, home décor and more, while you sample more than 50 wines & cocktails.

Live music by the Dom Colizzi trio -- a Bangor Uncorked fan favorite.

Sip, shop, socialize and repeat at Bangor Uncorked ~ the ultimate girls night out or date night with your honey!
