Today, we hopped in an Escalade Stretch Limo courtesy of All About Trolley and took a ten minute drive over to Owls Head along with some other innkeepers for a tour of Breakwater Vineyards. This coming summer will be their second season in operation.
We got a tour of their winemaking process where they were currently working on a Blueberry wine and a Chardonnay.
The vineyard is located on a former horse farm on a hilltop in Owls Head with absolutely stunning views of Penobscot Bay and the Camden Hills.
The main house contains the tasting room where we sampled a Reisling, an Oak Chardonnay and a Pinot Noir. Now, I don’t normally care for Riesling as I find it too sweet but this was absolutely delicious. It was not too sweet and had a slightly crisp and tart finish.
The tasting room is stunning and has a small shop with Breakwater Lighthouse gift items with proceeds going to the Friends of Rockland Breakwater Light. They also sell their wine of course and branded gift items.
Breakwater Vineyards offers free tasting every Wednesday through Saturday from noon to 5 pm in season. If your in the area, this is not to be missed!
Thanks again to All Aboard Trolley for transportation. The stretch Escalade, complete with 4 TVs, ambient lighting, fireplace, laser lights, fog machine and every imaginable bell and whistle made us feel like movie stars!!!
