Courtesy of: Sweetgrass Farm Winery & Distillery Sweetgrass Farm Winery & Distillery produces over twenty fruit wines, ports and spirits in Union.  The farm uses 30,000+ pounds of locally grown fruit each year, including apples, blueberries and cranberries.

On Thursday, July 24, the Belfast Co-op is sponsoring a trip to Sweetgrass Farm Winery & Distillery in Union to learn about production from this award-winning winemaker.  Transportation will be provided by Waldo CAP from the Belfast Co-op, located at 123 High Street in downtown Belfast.  Registrants will leave the Co-op at 12:15pm and return by 3:45pm.

This guided tour will provide a behind-the-scenes look at their production of fruit wines, ports, and spirits - including the only Maine-distilled whiskey since Prohibition. There will be free tastings, and an opportunity to purchase your favorites to bring home. Sweetgrass Farm is a family run business, owned by Keith and Constance Bodine, which supports local sustainable agriculture and donates 10% of their profits to organizations that support families, children, and rural life.

There is a $10 registration fee to help defray the cost of transportation.  Reserve your seat at the front registers at the Co-op, or with a credit card by phoning (207) 338-2532.  Seating is limited.
