We happily take orders by telephone or e-mail as well as in person. We offer a case discount on any 12 wines. Thank you all for shopping with us! We really appreciate it!






New Arrivals

Unlike the chain stores we have relationships with suppliers of limited production wines ; we enjoy discovering " hidden gems" to share with you. We always have a few new tasty arrivals on hand!
Spring and Fall are our scouting seasons, and we'll be attending all the industry wine tastings, carefully selecting the wines we like, and pouring those in our upcoming tastings. We will let you know what we find and what will be added to our inventory. 


Outstanding New Beers:

We rotate our stock to reflect the season, but we try to fill the shelves with these brands: FROM MAINE-Fore River, Mast Landing, Orono, Lone Pine ,Deciduous, Banded Horn, Oxbow, Foundation, Maine Beer Co.,Gearys, Allagash, Tuckerman's, Sebago, Penobscot Bay Brewery, Rising Tide, Baxter,Funky Bow ,Geaghan Brothers,Peak Organic,Sheepscot,Sea Dog ,Atlantic, etc. ....

Then as well : Smuttynose, Moat Mountain, Lagunitas, Guiness, Ayinger Celebrator, St. Peter's Organic, Orkney and more...

Right now we are loving the fresh Maine Craft beer scene. About 130 breweries call Maine home and they are all unique. It's ever-changing and collaborative. We snag what we can so stop in and check out our rotating selection!

The stellar dark wheat Odyssey, one of John’s all time favorite Maine beers ( this one is very limited) is aged in oak barrels and improves with some ageing.  


Each year, during the spring and fall we offer our end of season specials.

New vintages replace the old ones and sometimes new wine labels replace lesser wines on our limited shelf space. We pass the savings on to you - incredible values at no risk.

We offer handpicked wines on sale weekly, look in our wooden cases for bargains .

These are great bargains that also deliver on taste! When they're gone, they're gone, so check it out now,while the supply lasts.
