Locally sourced, internationally recognized wines & spirits

Our Mission

To produce excellent wines and spirits from local Maine agricultural products—and to have fun doing it!


Made from locally sourced maple syrup, apple and pear ciders, we make both still and sparkling wines and a maple port-like after dinner sipping wine.


Our Applejack, Pear Brandy, and Knotted Maple spirts are distilled from our wines. Our Limoncello and Absinthe contain neutral spirits, imported French lemon zest and locally sourced organic herbs.


Versatile mixers we call “adult juice.” They are great alone, hot or cold, mixed with white wines, or bourbon, tequila, vodka, and rum.

Our Story

We started 25 years ago making wine for ourselves and 15 years later created some for everyone else to enjoy. Along the way, Bruce built a 26’ trimaran, Karen learned to sail, we got married so Bruce could get health insurance to start Tree Spirits, added spirits, subLimes, and sanitizer to our offerings, added space to our tasting room, sold our house, moved into an apartment, traded the tri for a 37′ cabin cruiser (much more comfortable but not as fast), and have welcomed Harvest Host travelers to stay the night. We still have fun making wines, meeting new people, spending time on the water and drinking. Come visit!
