Maine wine is made from fruit grown in the U.S. state of Maine. Most is made from fruit other than grapes, including apple, cranberry, and blueberry wines. A few wineries in Maine produce limited quantities of wine made from locally-grown French hybrid grape varieties. Maine's climate is very cold for viticulture.[1]
