Cellardoor Winery of Lincolnville is planning to open a 5,000-square-foot tasting room at Thompson’s Point in Portland next spring.
The satellite location will be known as Cellardoor at the Point and will host wine tastings, dinners, cooking classes, food-and-wine pairings and other special events. It also will have retail space for selling the company’s “Cellardoor at Home” product line, which includes jams and jellies, oils, vinegars, desserts, syrups and other food products.
The large space “will give us a lot of opportunity to do some of our bigger dinners and get creative on what kind of events we want to plan,” said Bettina Doulton, who has owned the winery since 2007.
Thompson’s Point is a 30-acre former industrial site that juts out into the Fore River.
DETROIT — The federal government is considering allowing those of Middle Eastern and North African descent to identify as such on the next 10-year Census, which could give Arab-Americans and other affected groups greater political clout and access to public funding, among other things.
The U. S. Census Bureau will test the new Middle East-North Africa, or MENA, classification for possible inclusion on the 2020 Census if it gets enough positive feedback about the proposed change by Sunday, when the public comment period ends.
Arab-Americans, who make up the majority of those who would be covered by the MENA classification, have previously been classified by default as white on the Census, which helps determine congressional district boundaries and how billions of dollars in federal funding are allocated, among other things.
Those pushing for the MENA classification say it would more accurately count them, thus increasing their visibility and influence among policymakers.
The Census Bureau plans to test it later this year by holding focus group discussions with people who would be affected by the proposed change.
