Maine Open Winery Day, 2021!

Join us...

Saturday, September 11th - 11am to 4pm

Join us for a day of talks and demonstrations.
See what is involved in growing grapes in Maine and making wine from cold hardy, hybrid varieties not well known to most people.
We will be wine tasting all day and you can roam the grounds.
We will be posting a schedule of talks.
Don't worry if you miss a demonstration, the winemaker will be around all day to answer questions.

Schedule:

11 a.m. - Vineyard Tour and Talk
Learn about Maine viticulture including grape varietals and the equipment used in maintaining the vineyard. Elmer will be in the vineyard, giving talks and answering questions.
1 p.m. - Edible and Medicinal Mushrooms
David Spahr, author of Edible and Medicinal Mushrooms of New England and Eastern Canada will give a talk and PowerPoint show on finding the best edible mushrooms, tools and equipment, and safety.
3 p.m. - Winery Talk
Our winery doors will be open and the opportunity to ask the winemaker questions about the challenges of making wine with hybrid grapes.

All Day: Wine flights, mini-flights, glasses of wine, wine cocktails, wine slushies, cheese boards and crackers will be available.

The last of the wine slushies for 2021!
As the summer winds to an end we will be packing away our slush machine, but not before one final weekend. For Open Winery Day, September 11th, we will be serving up the last of the slushes.
*Plus, in celebration of this special day, we will be adding an extra "shot" of wine, to each slush, at no extra charge.
