Maine Wine Trail

There are more than 25 stops along the Maine Wine Trail – from wineries and vineyards to fermentories and distilleries. Maine’s oldest winery, Bartlett Maine Estate Winery, has been making blueberry and other fruit wines for nearly 40 years. Despite Maine’s seemingly incongruous weather for grapes, Maine’s dedicated farmers have found which varieties grow best in our four-season climate. There are now more vineyards than ever, each crafting wines rich with a uniquely Maine terroir and numerous wineries that make their own wines from select grapes from around the world.

A destination winery, Cellardoor Winery in Lincolnville, Maine offers tours and tastings in their 200-year-old barn overlooking the picturesque vineyard.

In the summer months, Oyster River Winery in Warren opens their barn as a popular gathering space for wine lovers. They make wines and ciders in a low-intervention style from their own fruit, and fruit sourced from other growers in the region.

Don’t miss Maine’s meads, hard ciders and distilled liquors, either. In Winthrop, you can try one of many varieties of cider at Absolem, like Preserved Memory whihc is made from apples and low-bush blueberries. You can always pick up a bottle of Maine wine for a friend at one of the many wine shops across the state like the Blue Hill Wine Shop or Maine & Loire in Portland.

Hop on the Maine Wine Trail to find a bottle that complements your favorite Maine meal. Get ten or more stamps in your Wine Trail Passport and you get a free shirt and chance to win a gift from the Samoset Resort. Tasting a new wine, in the vineyard where it was grown or along the rocky coast with the sea breeze as your companion, what could be better?
