Maine’s Wicked-Good Wine Trail

Filed under: Uncategorized — karenhammond @ 9:24 pm

Fall is fabulous in Maine, and all the more so if you take time to explore the state’s exceptional wine trail. Vintners are doing amazing things not only with grapes but also with fruits like blueberries, cranberries, and elderberries. The results are both innovative and interesting. Many of the wineries are situated at family-owned farms where you can also enjoy visiting with the farm animals (a pig named Lettuce! Goats named Chardonnay, Riesling, and Pinot Noir!).  I had so much fun visiting wineries that stretch almost from one end of the state to the other that I wrote about them for Wine Enthusiast Magazine.  Here’s a link if you’d like to check it out.  http://www.winemag.com/Wine-Enthusiast-Magazine/Web-2011/Maines-Wine-Trail/  At the end of the article you’ll find links suggesting  places to stay and a trolley that will take you to some of the midcoast wineries. Enjoy this unusual experience, perfect for a fall getaway!
