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 de la Gravelle Muscadet Sevre et Maine Sur Lie 2014

    Snoothrank:

    One must try not to love this wine... its inviting nose (fresh, ripe white table grapes and sea salt), beautiful light yellow robe, and tangy, slightly saline, dry grapey flavours. The finish is extremely clean and refreshing. It all comes with an excellent price too! Great value. 87 points Read More

  • Le Fils des Gras Moutons Muscadet Sevre et Maine 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Excellent Muscadet, the back label says these grapes come from 18 acres of vines that average over 50 yrs of age in Gras Moutons. Light yellow in color, there's a bit of aroma of lemon pith which may show better if we drank it a bit less cool. Nice lemon cream, a touch of white grapefuit, a hint of white pepper, lively acidity and a medium finish. Read More
