Maine’s wine industry is very young. Excellent fruit wineries dominate the industry, making good use of famous Maine produce like blueberries, cranberries, apples and pears. Some grape wines are also produced, using fruit imported from New York, California and the Pacific Northwest. However, a handful of growers are exploring the possibility of growing grapes locally, from French and American hybrid varieties. Thanks to these viticultural pioneers, Maine-grown grape wines are now a small but growing portion of the wines produced here, legitimately making the State of Maine a wine appellation of origin.
