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

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

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.

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...

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

We had high hopes when visiting the cellars but were left disappointed. All of their grapes and a lot of their fruit are shipped in (not grown locally), and most of the wines were just ok. The pourer was very knowledgeable, but quite pompous. Overall, if you go it won't be a complete waste of time, but I doubt we... More

I'm sorry that your recent visit to our winery was disappointing to you. I truly believe that most folks who visit find at least one wine that they enjoy. With over 13 varieties, I feel we offer something for everyone. Beyond the wine, our Chocolate Room and Made in Maine gifts are also popular. I would invite you to stop... More

On our recent trip to Bar Harbor we stopped into the Bar Harbor Cellars Winery and as I big wine drinker I was super excited. We did the free tasting, however, we did also taste a few other wines that were not on the tasting list. The person we had helping us, Julia, was very knowledgeable and friendly. The blueberry...

Nice winery with great fruit wines! Their most popular is the blueberry wine, we also really liked the cranberry one. Their grapes are sourced from different places, so they have lots of varieties of wines. The staff was friendly and will pick wines that you might like based on your taste preferences.

Thank you for your nice review of our small winery. Even though we are just starting our season, we are fortunate in that all the winery staff have returned from last year. Our knowledgeable and friendly staff are key to our success. Thanks again, and visit us again soon. More
