We showed up at their tasting room right at closing time, but that made no difference. We received the normal treatment to their tasting without being rushed, liked a few of the samplings, and purchased same. Probably did not spend longer than 20 minutes there but it was well worth the visit.

We stopped in for some wine tasting at the Breakwater Vineyards, but walked away with so much more. The property, which is a vineyard, working farm, and winery also includes a spectacular home with a taste testing room and wonderful array of wines for sale. We tried several different wines, but then had the added treat of having the owner give us a tour of the vineyards and the wine making facility. It was very neat to see the vines right there in Maine, and learn of their wines. The winery itself was spotless and our host gave us a great overview of how each piece of equipment worked. He took us from vine to barrels to bottles. We loved this find on a beautiful hillside overlooking Rockland Harbor.

Upon overlooking their beautiful setting grapevines to ocean view back entering via cozy porch for wine tasting. Soon discovering they also offer a well balanced mead (honey wine)... we bought several bottles and need to return soon for more.

Very lovely and lingering wine tasting with a darling lady ( I was too taken by the house and didn't remember her name) very gracious hostess. Wonderful wines and no hurry. The winery dog, Cindy, was just adorable and friendly. Visit the winery then head to the lighthouse!

Kathryn and I were on our way up the Maine coast on a long-awaited vacation. We were searching for some unpasteurized cider at a farmers' market on the waterfront in Rockland, when I spied a booth for a winery!? Rockland? When I lived in the area in the early '70s, a winery was almost an impossibility. A wino, yes, but..... I stopped to visit and got a very friendly pitch from one of the owners and she gave me coupons for both of us to visit the Maine Street location for a complimentary tasting.
What a wonderful surprise. The location is great in the heart of a vibrant downtown very near to the fabulous Farnsworth Museum and handy to all the shops nearby. The tasting was very well presented and we were really impressed with the mead and the very delicious hearty red made with Maine blueberries. Really, holds up to any comparison from North America, Australia, and South America. We loved the experience and the wines. Took some home to Colorado but we haven't popped one yet. Waiting for a really good excuse.
Do this!!
