“Great wine tasting...maybe too great”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 16, 2013

We have been here several times (busy and slower days) and the staff was always pleasant. The free tastings are great but beware, you will undoubtedly be purchasing some BHC bottles to take home. We love the blueberry and consider driving the 6 hour trek for that alone! Will definitely stop every time we visit Bar Harbor, which is at least once a year.

“Wine Tasting and educational....”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 16, 2013

Stopped by the Cellars winery to try some of the tasting wines and learned all about the different wines, including the fruit wines - blueberry, cranberry and more. You can buy or ship many of the items.

“A nice stop after a day of hiking Acadia!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2013

We stopped here around 4:30 to do a wine tasting- after reading reviews I was worried they did them at only preset times but that is not the case. We tasted the six wines that were on the flight list and the lady who was leading our tasting also had us taste three additional wines including their ice wine which was delicious. The wines are very good and the fruit wines (which we ended up going home with two bottles of- blueberry and cranberry,) were very good and unlike most fruit wines I have tasted in that the wine is made of the fruit not grapes with fruit flavoring. The lady was very kind and took her time explaining the wines to us. The tasting was free and if you buy three bottles of wine you receive a $3 discount. We were also impressed with the gift shop as they had a nice assortment of Main related items including a blueberry salsa which we picked up to take home and looked in the chocolate room but did not purchase as Im not a big chocolate fan, but they did have nice items especially for those looking for a higher end Maine inspired gift for someone. I was also able to buy a six pack of the blueberry soda that I had been seeing around for $8.00- which is much cheaper than the $2 a bottle they wanted at the national park. I would definitely recommend making a stop here!

Thanks for stopping in, and glad you enjoyed your tasting experience. We have a wide variety of wines, and think that anyone can find something they like. With our Chocolate Room, wine accessories and gourmet cheese, we think you'll find something fun to compliment your wine selection. Hope to see you again on your next visit to Acadia!
