Cellardoor Winery

Our priority when you visit the winery is that you have a warm, welcoming experience that becomes a cherished memory.

We feel fortunate to be part of something that gives us great joy and are honored to be caretakers of an incredible property—a 68-acre, 200-year-old farm that has had only a handful of owners since its fields were first plowed. We’ve restored the beautiful 1790s barn and old farmhouse and recently constructed a state-of-the-art winery across the road.

The Vineyard

Just five miles from Camden Harbor is Lincolnville, the home of the Winery and Vineyard. When Bettina Doulton purchased the property in 2007, she became just the fourth owner in the past century. Over the years we’ve renovated the buildings doing our very best to preserve their historic beauty. We installed a full commercial kitchen so that we can give our guests unique opportunities to enjoy food and wine through a wide range of samplings, classes, and events at the Winery.

The Grapes

Our wines are made in small, handcrafted batches with grapes sourced from premier vineyards across the country and from local Maine blueberries.

Since first replanting in 2008, our five-and-a-half-acre vineyard has reached maturity where it is able to produce crop loads that are sustainable for wine production. It has been replanted with cold, hearty hybrids developed to withstand the harsher climate of Maine. September of 2012 saw our first harvest of grapes from our vineyard for future estate-grown releases. And we’ll continue to source grapes from Washington, California, and New York, to give our winemakers what they need to craft a wide range of wines for every taste.

The Villa

Located at the intersection of Routes 90 and 1 in Rockport, you’ll find Cellardoor at the Villa—our second tasting room and gift shop. The Villa, formerly known as “the yellow house” to locals, has a character all its own. Its historic Victorian architecture and elements salvaged from a once grand home on the Bowdoin College campus in Brunswick are stunning with a glass conservatory and ornate decor. As the Winery’s barn has a calming aura about it, the Villa energizes the senses.
