This was my 2nd time and the wine tastings are always educational, relaxing and fun. If you purchase a 3 pack of wine, you get $3 off total, which is a decent deal. Lots of fun gift type items too!

We have stopped here several times on our way to and from Bar Harbor. We love their wines, on our most recent trip we left with 13 bottles to split between us and another couple. Their Black Barstow and Gewürtztraminer are great. They also make a dessert (icewine) that is wonderful if that's your sort of thing. The only negative... More

We visited after seeing the signs up and the grapes growing. We have been to many many wineries and tastings and love to sample Local wines when we travel. When we walked in we were pleasantly surprised at the store. Beautiful rustic area and we thought , ok, this is gonna be good. Like other posters have commented, we,too were... More

My husband and I visited the Cellars with the intention of eating at the farm-to-table restaurant next door, Sweet Pea Cafe. After eating we stopped into the wine tasting room and had a great experience. The store has many local food items beyond wine including cheeses, meats, chocolates, etc. We tried 4 or 5 wines and purchased three bottles as... More

Hello, went here to see what they had to offer. Did the wine tasting. Enjoyed immensely, although found the man conducting our tasting to not be that friendly. He had us taste everything. I would have preferred just saying I'd like to try this one and this one, but felt like we had to listen to the whole spiel. Anyhow,... More

Thank you for taking the time to visit our little winery in Bar Harbor. From only offering 4 wines in 2007, we now stock more than a dozen wines in a variety of styles from dry to sweet. We like to think we have a wine for every taste. The tastings are meant to be informational, and we have found... More

My boyfriend and I had stopped in on a whim to visit the wine-tasting room and left confused and disappointed. I have lived in Europe for 5 years and know how tasting rooms should operate. The sad thing is - is that my boyfriend had never been to a wine tasting room and was excited to try the different wines;... More

I am sorry that you did not enjoy your recent visit to our winery. We try to insure that each of our guests is welcomed and attended to as quickly as possible. As the focus of our wine tastings is as much educational as recreational, we attempt to link a narrative to the tasting. We have found that most of... More

The store has a great chocolate room with chocolates from a variety of Maine companies. The wine tasting bartender was very knowledgeable of the wines and they pour quite a few. He also was good at suggesting food pairings for the various wines. Didn't care for most of the wines and the fruit was are really, really sweet.

Glad you had the opportunity to try our great wines. Presently, we are a very small winery, only making around 1000 cases annually. We are able to sell nearly all of it right from our own tasting room. Perhaps in the future you will be able to find in a wine store near you! Thanks! More

Came here for the free wine tasting a couple days ago and were very excited to check out the place. While conversing with your staff we mentioned our place of employment to Joel, he was very rude and insulted my friends and I stating our place of employment in the town was "a horrible company to work for, you wait...

On behalf of the management and staff of Bar Harbor Cellars, I wish to offer you my most sincere apologies for any conduct to which you took offense at the winery. We are in the hospitality business, and it is most important that all customers be treated in a warm and friendly manner. We offer wine tastings at our downtown... More

My sister and I thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Bar Harbor Cellars Winery last week. We got to taste a number of their wines crafted on site from local and regionally-grown fruits and European grapes. While the blueberry wine is most popular, we liked the cranberry wine best! The tour and wine tasting are conducted in an historic barn, so... More
