We recently visited Dragonfly Farm and Winery in Stetson, ME on our way up north to visit our friend Amanda.
They have a small tasting room, although it is much larger than their original. When the winery opened, the owners completed tastings in the breezeway of their home! They haven’t moved though- they just have a nice visiting room next door!
Dragonfly Farm and Winery makes mostly fruit wines. The use their own fruit, but if they need more, they get it from Wyman’s.
They also make grape wines, but those are on a rotating schedule due to the quickness the supply and quickness they run out. They started making fruit wines to fill in the gaps and those became even more popular. They make 36 different types of wine.
The owners were mentored in Germany. They both still work full time while they operate the winery, which is crazy! Imagine working 80+ hours a week, every week?!
Sweet and smooth up front. Made with 50% Blueberry and 50% Blackberry, fermented with French Oak.
Blackberry flavor, not too sweet, a little too syrupy, maybe a touch too much blackberry for us.
Smells like raspberry jam, and tastes like raspberries.
Good blueberry flavor, a sweet desert wine.
Cranberry wine, taste like cranberry juice.
The woman who led our tasting was nice and gave us a fair amount of information about the winery. There was a large group that arrived just after us, so our tasting was quick, but still good. The winery had a nice feel to it, the hostesses were nice, and there were friendly people visiting as well.
