Cellardoor Winery owner Bettina Doulton said, “Our winemaker, Aaron Peet, and his team are proving that great winemaking doesn’t only happen close to where the grapes grow. I’m proud that we’re using Washington, California, and New York grapes to make American, award-winning, food friendly wine in Maine.”

Cellardoor wines are served at the winery's tasting rooms in Lincolnville and at Thompson's Point in Portland, and can be purchased at the winery, online at mainewine.com, or at participating retailers.
