There's another vineyard on the main road from Unity into Albion, though the OP won't be getting anywhere near there.

I have no idea.

She said that they are the only winery in Maine that only uses Maine grapes.

She listed a bunch of other wineries, and explained how each of them import grape juice.

I am only reporting what she said.

I invite you to speak with her and ask for clarification, if you wish.

I have a nice list of places that i'd like to stop for a bite to eat and/or a drink - wrote extras in case some are closed, as i couldnt find all of them online.

If it rains i'll only stay one night in Acadia - if it stays nice, i might add another night there. Cant wait to get to your great state!

and i NEVER miss a fat boys chance in brunswick. just about everything there is super tasty.
I stopped there yesterday on my drive home. Bought 5 to go, hubby gobbled up 2 when I walked through the door, I ate one. Two lonely lobstah rolls made it until today.

They are delish and certainly worth the wait

According to the Sweetgrass website, they produce fruit wines made from fruits other than grapes.

Cellardoor sources their grapes from elsewhere. Per their website: "Sourcing our grapes from premier vineyards across the country and our blueberries locally, we proudly offer a broad selection of varietals to tempt every palate."

The climate isn't conducive to growing grapes with long winters and cooler, short summers. Even down in VT winemakers tend to make fruit wines with locally grown fruit.

Maine is close to perfect in my book. If it could support wine grapes, it would be heaven on earth.

Interesting for sure - I wonder why they have the grapes growing out behind where they make the wine. We have walked the vinyards at both places I previously mentioned. I don't doubt that they add other fruits but there are grapes growing on both properties.
