The Top 3 Reasons to Check out Cellardoor Winery

The Atmosphere

Did you know that the tasting room is within a 200-year-old barn? The friendly folks that own Cellardoor Winery have restored it to offer an inviting space for wine connoisseurs while preserving its rustic charm. Stop by their hillside location to indulge in exquisite flavors, captivating conversations, and beautiful views overlooking the vineyard from the hillside. It’s an ideal day-trip destination with your friend or special someone. 

Don’t forget that you can also explore the winery and get a behind-the-scenes look at it all! Tours are on Saturdays and Sundays at 2:00 p.m. 

The Wines

Of course, one of the top reasons to visit Cellardoor Winery is that you get to taste delicious wines! While some local wineries offer a limited selection, Cellardoor allows you to enjoy several different options. They craft a wide variety of red, white, and specialty wines using hardy, hybrid grapes designed to withstand the cold climate of Maine on a beautiful, five and a half-acre estate. The owners of Cellardoor Winery have come a long way since their first harvest in 2012 — they now offer over 20 wines from estate-grown grapes!

The Events

The people at Cellardoor Winery offer more than enjoyable wines — they also provide the community with delightful experiences. Feel free to join the fun at one of their upcoming events in Lincolnville! The list includes complimentary pairings featuring flavors from local vendors as well as wine-tasting classes, winemaker dinners, and Food Truck Saturdays. 

Local tip: If you can’t make it to the winery to purchase a bottle of your favorite wine, buy it online and have it shipped to you. Or, try their wine finder to find it at a store near you!
