Maine’s wine industry is very young. Excellent fruit wineries dominate the industry, making good use of famous Maine produce like blueberries, cranberries, apples and pears. Some grape wines are also produced, using fruit imported from New York, California and the Pacific Northwest. However, a handful of growers are exploring the possibility of growing grapes locally, from French and American hybrid varieties. Thanks to these viticultural pioneers, Maine-grown grape wines are now a small but growing portion of the wines produced here, legitimately making the State of Maine a wine appellation of origin.

  • Chateau l'Oiseau d'Or Muscadet Sevre et Maine Sur Lie 2012


    Almost flinty on the nose with the rather direct aromas of chalk and oyster shell gaining some heathery depth from the lees ageing along with a rosemary topnote. A touch round on entry but with terrific acidity this comes together well on the palate. Theres lovely lemon curd fruit here with a hint of Asian pear and a nice basenote of leesy spic... Read More
