August 19-26, Union, Maine.
Where else can you enjoy wine from over 20 Maine wineries under one roof? Come sample wines made from Maine wild blueberries, fruits, honey and grapes (yes, some grapes grown in Maine, too).
If wine is not your thing, we also offer select Maine-made beer, for sale by the glass, from our friends in the Maine beer industry and spirits from some of Maine’s best craft distillers.
Both wine and beer are great paired with the diverse foods found on the Tastings of Maine Wines, Beers, and Meads at the Wine Pavillion at the Union Fair.fairgrounds. Grab some of your favorites, and enjoy pairing them while sitting on our deck watching the horse racing or gazing off toward the smooth running Georges River.
September 16, Statewide
On September 16th , wineries across the state will be hosting tastings, tours, and special events to celebrate Maine Open Winery Day. It’s an opportunity for Maine’s winemakers to showcase their wineries and for customers to learn more about making wine from traditional and not-so-traditional products.
Starting with a single winery in 1983 making blueberry wine, Maine winemakers are now using grapes, native fruits, and even maple syrup to produce wines that are garnering regional, national and even international awards. Each winery has special products, great stories, and a lot to share with the public about what makes their products special whether it’s wine, mead, cider, or spirits. This is an opportunity for them to share their stories and showcase their products.
