Black Sheep Wine and Beer Shop
Fine Wine and Craft Beer Store on the Coast of Maine  


The Black Sheep Wine and Beer Shop sells exceptional fine wines, craft beers and a selection of quality specialty foods including award - winning artisan chocolate and cheese.

The Black Sheep specializes in small production, estate grown wines in our retail store; we love sharing our latest finds!






We have been in business for about 18 years and we have an ever changing collection of about 500 different wines in stock from all over the world, in all price ranges, including vintage and allocated fine wine.

We are proud to carry wonderful local Maine wines and a selection of Maine craft beers in our store. 





We have carefully chosen all of our wines and beers; we are independent retailers!

We taste all the wines and beers before we allow them on our shelves. Our shelves are not stocked by sales reps with quotas - we choose our products based on quality; we only sell products that we enjoy.

We carry gift worthy wines and offer beautiful gift baskets, suitable for any occasion, with quality handpicked foods to match the wines, and we offer local delivery, too.

We have a reserve case of spectacular wines and vintage wines just for those special occasions when you want a wine that'll dazzle!


At The Black Sheep, we always have handpicked new arrivals and an interesting selection of fine wines and top quality beers on hand to buy.

We can special order for you, too: wines, one bottle and up, beers most often are by the case.

There are over 150 Maine- based breweries in the state now,so we have good access to a wide range of great local craft beers! We keep it fresh by stocking about 40 different labels on the shelves or chilled.





We have a selection of affordably priced wines about $12ish, and about 200 wines under $20.00. Note that our off-season (winter) times are slower, in general, so our inventory may be a little less but it is just as good, as we are able to offer many unique wines and beers that are not always available throughout the year. We offer more one- on -one customer service in our slower times,too.

Our customers appreciate our competitive pricing, case discounts, specials and our unique selection. Gift Certificate Cards as well as digital eGift Cards are available for purchase at the store or by clicking here.

We offer friendly, knowledgeable service and aim to make every visit an enjoyable and pleasant encounter :)

We look forward to seeing you!

We are near the Harpswell Town Office, by the ocean. We are convenient to the towns of   Freeport, Bath and Topsham and nearest to Brunswick, only a pretty 10 minute drive towards the sea.
