The Breakwater Vineyard is beautiful, Extremely nice owners and knowledgeable staff. Its relaxing to go to a tasting. I have been to wine tasting in California and it is not pleasant. I had family come from California and they enjoyed it so much. The wine is very very good... I highly recommend it.

Finally a Winery that has the kind of wines I like. Being from NC I'm fond of the sweet wines and they had several so I didn't get left out in the tasting which usually happens. My partner said the other wine is good to but they're not my style.

My wife and I toured 4 wineries yesterday in Union, Owls Head and Lincolnville, ME. We did tastings at each and bought at least one bottle of wine at each. This winery resides in a beautiful house in a gorgeous setting. Tasting of 4 wines is $3. Sign says if you buy a bottle, tasting is free, but they charged... More

Thank you for visiting our winery and tasting room. I just wanted to clarify our policy regarding refunding the tasting fee. Maine law does not allow us to discount alcohol so we cannot refund a tasting fee if you purchase only wine. We can however discount non-alcohol purchases. So sorry for the confusion. We are always happy to apply the... More

It was Maine Wine Weekend, and I had just had two disappointments on my trek to the vineyards. At the first in Union, Maine, the promised pulled pork lunch was sold out early, and at the second, in Rockland, the single staffer was completely overwhelmed, rushing back and forth between the tasting bar and the register. Off I went, hungry... More

We stopped at the winery after a drive out to the lighthouse and lunch at McLoons Lobster Shack. It was a perfect setting to view the harbor and chat about the lobster and plan our next day. The rose was our favorite but wine is different for all people. It's the setting and the conversation that makes this a must... More
