Welcome to Cellardoor Winery – Where Tradition Meets Innovation

Nestled in the picturesque landscapes of Lincolnville, Maine, Cellardoor isn’t just a winery and vineyard; it’s a living testament to the rich history that graces this land.

From the 1790s, when the first post-and-beam barn was erected, to the 1800s, when the Young family cultivated the soil, to the 1990s, when John and Stephanie Clapp envisioned transforming this historic farmland into a haven for wine enthusiasts. Today, under the thoughtful guidance and passion of Bettina Doulton, Cellardoor Winery has become synonymous with exceptional wines.

However, our story isn’t complete without the tale of a hobo, a migrant worker who found solace on our farm nearly a century ago. His carved symbol on our barn door, a silent promise of welcome, has become our modern logo—a reminder that hospitality is etched into our roots.

Our goal is simple: to exceed expectations and provide a sanctuary from the hustle of everyday life. Join us at Cellardoor Winery, where each glass tells a story, and every visit is an invitation to experience the timeless charm of genuine hospitality.


From grape to glass

Estate Vineyard

Today, our five-and-a-half-acre estate vineyard, planted with cold-hardy hybrids developed to overcome the challenges of Maine’s climate, has reached maturity. Our estate vintages include Bulles Rosé and Blanc de Blancs; both produced using Traditional Méthod bottle fermentation; and dessert wines Vin Doux Naturel Marquette and Late Harvest Frontenac Gris. In 2018 we produced Maine’s first-ever Ice Wine.

What Our Guests Are Saying

This is a great little place for a wine tasting. Perched upon a hillside it overlooks a magnificent vista. The tastings are very reasonable in price and some are for free depending on your choice. The wines are quite good. Having previously been to California and the Napa Valley as well as Oregon I would say these wines are very good in value and well made. Cheers to the winemakers. You can also purchase antipasto to eat with your tasting or glass of wine at a reasonable price. If in the area I would not miss this place.


Very friendly service and yummy wine! Beautiful establishment and nice to do on a rainy day.


An incredibly beautiful spot! The old barn with the exposed beams is charming and cozy. A wonderful place for an event. What can be better than drinking wine and browsing through a well-curated gift shop. The staff knows their stuff and wine is good


We were there for a bachelorette wine tasting and it was an amazing experience! The staff was knowledgeable and super friendly. Thank you for helping us make wonderful memories for our bride to be!


Amazing from the moment we walked in till the moment we drove out. Incredible service, staff extremely knowledgeable, warm and friendly. Don't make the mistake of not dropping in, you will regret it, I promise


What a beautiful little winery. The atmosphere is so comfortable and the staff is amazing. Sit on the deck and enjoy a breathtaking view while you sip wine and enjoy a selection of fine cheeses and crackers to complement your choice of wine. A great way to enjoy an afternoon.

Giving Back

Our Approach

At Cellardoor our approach to giving back to our community and the State of Maine is two-fold; supporting immediate human needs and investing in Maine’s economic future. With the goal of maximizing the impact of our efforts in these areas, we have decided to focus our donations on two large commitments. Spreading our budget across the hundreds of donation and sponsorship requests received has proven to not have a lasting benefit.
