FAQs

Do you deliver?

Due to state regulations, we are not permitted to deliver alcohol.

Can you help me find a special bottle that you don't carry?

Absolutely. There are many, many wines available in the world, and we simply cannot stock all of them. We will happily special order any wine or beer that is available in Maine. What does that mean? We can only order bottles that have been registered for sale in this state, and that is done by the wholesalers we order from.

Can you get wines that aren't registered here and/or order wine for me directly from the winery?

No, that is not possible under current Maine liquor laws. However, if there is a compelling reason for a wholesaler to contract with a certain producer and carry their products, the desired label may become available.

Do you carry spirits?

At present, Bangor Wine does not hold an agency liquor license and subsequently does not carry distilled spirits.

Do you have tastings? Do you offer private tastings/events?

NEW TASTING NIGHTS: We offer FREE public tastings at Bangor Wine and Cheese on the 3rd Wednesday of every month, and at Crossroads Beverage on the 3rd Friday of every month. In addition, we offer special tastings if an exciting guest is available to meet with our customers. For those interested in private tastings and events, please contact us for a personal consultation with one of our staff.

I am gluten-intolerant/gluten-free. Do you have selections for me?

Heck yes. We offer a selection of gluten-free beers, as well as natural ciders that have no gluten additives.

Do you have any sulfite-free wines?

No, we do not. However, we offer wines with very low added sulfites. The reason is that sulfite-free wines are stripped of even naturally occurring sulfites, and we feel that also strips the wines of inherent character. Since many of our wines are shipped in temperature-controlled containers, the winemakers add only trace amounts to the wine to prevent re-fermentation in the bottle.

Do you sell wine or beer-making equipment?

No, we do not.

Do you sell kegs?

Yes, we sell kegs! We do not stock them -- all kegs are special orders. We’re always happy to check availability with our distributors!
