When you think of Maine, you’re probably not automatically thinking wine country! But these wineries are hidden gems only minutes away from your home.

There are many different kinds of wine made right here in the great state of Maine! Our wineries offer everything from Mead- wine made from honey to a more traditional cabernet or merlot. Most of Maine’s wineries grow a portion of their supplies themselves but due to our climate it is not your traditional grape. Like most Mainers, Maine’s winemakers take advantage of the natural abundance of the state, using everything from maple syrup to rhubarb to blueberries when creating their wines.

Many of the wineries offer tours or wine tastings throughout the year.  If you are up for an adventure you should check out the Maine wine trail, they have an awesome map of where to find all 24 wineries in the state of Maine.

If you are a true wine connoisseur we have the home for you! Our listing for sale at 19 Inverness Rd in Falmouth Maine, has a one of kind wine cellar. This custom wine cellar was inspired by a wine cellar seen in Florence, Italy. Walking through the beautiful gated entryway will take you on a journey to Italy.  Every detail is accounted for; even the wood used to construct this cellar was purposely salvaged to transport the owner back to Tuscany. One key function of a wine cellar is to keep you’re your wine at the perfect consistent temperature for long term and short term storage, this is the perfect space that will do just that. The amount of wine you are able to store, is incredible! There is room for your friends to come and have a wine tasting of your own, maybe with all of those Maine wines?
