Wine distributor Ned Swain has published some interesting observations on the Maine wine industry on his blog Wines; Tasted!
Maine is one of the only states that has bucked this trend and seen a lot of diversification and proliferation in small, grass roots wine distributors. Wine distributors such as myself, SoPo, Crush, and Easterly have built businesses built on unique quality wines and passion. Mark-ups in Maine are also lower than in places like NY, both on restaurant lists and retail.
I have a feeling that this movement to higher quality, exciting, hand made wines has hit a critical mass…
