Ski resort works with brands, such as Goslings Rum, Fess Parker Winery, the Shipyard Brewery, and Portland-based restaurants Vignola and Cinque Terre on new menus

Newry, ME (January 5, 2012)-From specialty wine dinners to evenings that feature guest chefs from two highly acclaimed Portland, Maine-based Italian restaurants-Vignola and Cinque Terre-Sunday River Resort is pairing new culinary adventures with its Dining at The Peak experience in time for the New Year.

“Working with brands like Goslings Rum, Shipyard, Vignola, and Cinque Terre is our way of evolving the Dining at The Peak experience,” Jim Largess, VP of Food and Beverage for Sunday River, says.

Open on Saturday evenings through mid-March, Sunday River’s Dining at The Peak first opened in 2008 with the addition of the resort’s hybrid Chondola lift. The experience combines an intimate gondola cabin ride to the Peak Lodge where guests are then treated to complimentary glasses of champagne, passed hors d’oeuvres, a four-course meal, and live music.

Cost for Dining at The Peak ranges from $65 to $85 per person and include round trip transportation on the Chondola.

A sampling of 2012 Dining at The Peak experiences featuring the resort’s new culinary partners are listed below:

1/28-Fess Parker Wine Dinner

The menu for each Dining at The Peak changes according to what is in season and what, or who, the dinner features as a special guest.
