The service was excellent. We had a knowledgable, young lady help us through the tastings. It was our first wine tasting and she helped make it memorable!

We stopped in after having dinner at The Travelin Lobster next door. A lovely woman greeted us and offered tastings, if interested. We like Rieslings and she offered a tasting for a semi-dry Riesling, which was not to our taste. She recommended some of the fruit wines and we tasted the Blueberry Wine. Noting that we had 2 kids (ages... More

Typical winery taste testing. Wine was good so I was glad that we backtracked to check it out. Can also buy chocolates, glasses, etc.

We stopped here while our lobster was being prepared at the Travelin' Lobster next door. We had the perfect amount of time for a tasting & a bottle to go for our feast outside. Enjoy!

This place is located right next door to the Traveling Lobster so we stopped in for a wine tasting while waiting for our lobsters to be prepared.

I wish I could review the quality of the wine, but unfortunately, because of the chaos and customer service, I didn't get the chance to sample any! When I arrived, no staff welcomed me or instructed me on how to start a tasting. I waited about 5 minutes for a employee to help me. Finally, I eyed what another couple... More

Whenever I travel to a new state, I visit a local winery and bring some wine home. After our initial greeting, we were permitted a complimentary tasting but were told we could not sample the tasting flight because they had had a busy day! We had the ice wine - good - and the Pinot noir and Riesling - not... More

Very good wines and very friendly and knowledgeable staff. You'll want to buy some wines after tasting. We never had an aged ice wine until we stopped here.

Thanks for stopping in and trying some of our great wines. Folks are really enjoying the Ice Wine this season, perhaps because flavors continue to develop with age. And it is very reasonably priced. Appreciate you talking the time to give our little winery such a nice review. Please stop in and see us again on your next trip to... More

I was not a wine drinker before visiting this place. My FAVORITE is the "ice wine" & the black currant apple wine. Amazing! Their chocolate room is a great touch. I really wish they were able to ship to Maine, but that just means we'll have to visit again this fall!

I'm so glad you gave some of our non-grape wines a try! I'm a big fan of the Black Currant Apple blend myself, it reminds me of Port. The Apple wine and the Cranberry wine are not really sweet at all, and our best selling wine is, perhaps surprisingly, Blueberry. It's what I call semi-sweet and bears a resemblance to... More

They make wine from grape juice from all over the world. For $5 you can select 6 wines to sample. Bottle prices are about $19 each and we chose 2 wines to take home. If you select 3 there is a $5 discount. Our host of was knowledgeable about the wines.

Thanks for stopping and trying some of our wines. With 4 Reds, 4 Whites and 5 non-grape wines we offer something for everyone's taste. Along with the wines, we also have a nice selection of sausages and cheese, as well as a room dedicated to Maine chocolatiers. Stop by again on your next trip to Acadia! More
