There is plenty happening at Cellardoor Vineyard May 10th (10am-5pm).

This Spring event promises to be just as spectacular!
Look out for wine tasting, tours, picnic's, and great cooking classes during the season. Definitely a 'Must Visit' place when you come to the Mid Coast.(only 10 minutes from Blue harbor House) Also, try and stop at 'Cellardoor winery at the villa', their second retail site opening in June, at the intersection route 90 and Route 1 Rockport.
