Nice stop along the way. Staff is nice and friendly. Place is welcoming and everyone aims to please. Wine is good. We ended up buying a bottle of Riesling and pairing it with lobster for dinner. Very tasty :)

I love trying and purchasing wines of the regions I travel. This place does produce any of the fruit for the wine. Hence.....Not much a winery. They do not produce any of the blueberries or black berries found in maine, the cranberries are from out of state and all the grapes are imported. I can make wine from imported fruit... More

We went to Sweet Pea Cafe for dinner one evening and were disappointed to discover the Wine Cellar closed at 5 p.m. Having time later in the week we stopped for a visit. A delightful place we were mainly interested in trying their fruit wines. The young lady waiting on us accommodated our taste preference. Being fans of fruit wines... More

We stopped by this winery after arriving in the area. We didn't realize how close to closing they were--and they didn't rush us to leave. We enjoyed their fruit wines most, and took a blueberry and a cranberry with us as well as a couple of pieces of cheese. They offer chocolates and wine accessories and gifts, and the staff... More

We usually start our get aways to Bar Harbor with a stop at Bar Harbor Cellars. Always enjoy the tastings. They have some decent cheeses also. Left with 3 bottles this time. Going to have a wine tasting at home featuring their wines.Try to Blueberry wine, really enjoyed it!

Thanks for stopping and visiting, again! Buying 3 bottles is, as you know, a smart buy because you save $3 on that third bottle, about a 20% savings. The blueberry wine is, by the way, our best selling wine. Hope to see you again next season! More

We really wanted to take home a taste of Maine, so we disregarded the past reviews and stopped in for a wine tasting. We were made to feel welcome the moment we walked in. Joel led us through tastings of wines that better fit our palettes. He followed through with wrapping our purchases for the flight home. Wonderful experience.

Thank you for stopping at our little winery in Bar Harbor. Fall can be a lovely time to visit, because the store is generally less crowded than it is in July and August. I'm happy you enjoyed your tasting, and very much appreciate the fact that you took the time to share your experience on Trip Advisor. We hope you... More

Stopped by for lunch and tasting a few days ago. Had a terrible sandwich in the cafe, was completely burned and charred black. 1/2 sandwich for 11 dollars. Wine tasting was fun but bought a 20 dollar bottle of the best tasting wine, got it home and it was awful. Definitely not the same as what was given in the... More

I'm sorry that your recent visit to Bar Harbor Cellars did not meet your expectations. It does sound as though you enjoyed the tasting you were given, and I'm glad that compelled you to buy a bottle of wine. That the wine you took home to enjoy did not taste the same as the wine you tried at the winery... More

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
