Last time they gave free glasses with the wine tasting. It was just something that I noticed. We had a great time learning and trying some new wines including the ice wine - red and very sweet, syrupy. We did not care for that one. Our host was excellent, friendly, and informative. We bought 2 bottles of their fruit wines.... More

Thank you for visiting our winery in Bar Harbor. For more than a dozen years we have been taking juice from other parts of the world and carefully crafting wines in a style that perfectly suits Summer sipping.

First time visiting the area and felt very unwelcome by staff. Gentleman behind wine counter was rude. Needless to say I purchased nothing.....off to another winery.

Although they don't grow their own grapes, the winemaker has crafted some very unique, quality wines. The slightly oaked Chardonnay caught our attention along with the barbera and valpolicella. Nicely marketed as well.

We stopped in on Labor Day, just to check it out. I did a wine tasting and the staff were knowledgeable and friendly, were able to answer my questions. The wines were delicious! Left with some gifts and a bottle of wine for myself.

We are not wine snobs, but we have travelled the world to experience great wine and Maine is not necessarily the place for wine greatness. But we did a tasting and we were right! But the staff was fabulous and there were great foods to bring home for ourselves and gifts.
