Maine Wineries

The phrase “wine country” may not prompt you to think of the rocky coast of Maine. But a growing number of winemakers have realized that the state’s moderate ocean climate makes for happy grapevines. So like the rest of Maine’s culinary scene, the last twenty years have seen an explosion in wine production. After all, gourmands need something to pair with all that delicious seafood and wild game.

Grapevine varietals developed specifically for Maine’s microclimates—including chardonnay, sauvignon blanc, merlot and shiraz—are joining the sweet blueberry, blackberry, pear and apple wines that were the staples of Maine’s wine scene for many years.

Wineries in Maine are unique. Our wines are as varied as the people who create them, but they all reflect the special terroir of Maine, whether you’re visiting the coast, the lakes region or the highlands. When wine tasting in Maine, you don't have to be an expert to enjoy wine--you just need to trust your own taste. You’re bound to find one you like along the Maine Wine Trail, a collection of over two dozen wineries, tasting rooms, vineyards and orchards.

Wine tasting in Maine can be a choose-your-own adventure. Taste a variety of wines, meads, ciders and spirits along the Trail, or at a Maine Winery Guild event, the newest of which is Bangor’s Wine on the Waterfront in summer. No matter when you visit, you’ll find unique Maine vintages in specialty stores and markets throughout the state.
