Maxwell Point Vineyard

Hannaford Cove Road
Cape Elizabeth, ME 04107

About Us:

Maxwell Point Vineyard began in the early 1990's as a hobby project by Cape Elizabeth resident and ophthalmologist William Holt, M.D. seeking varieties of wine grapes that would grow and ripen well in Maine.

Traditional wine grapes don't survive or produce well in Maine, but over the past 20 years new cold hardy cultivars have been introduced by The University of Minnesota and Cornell Univesity.  Experimenting with these and other varieties, Bill has learned a lot over the years growing these grapes and creating good wines from them.  In spring 2014, our first release, Two Lights White, was well received.

The vineyard comprises about 1000 vines situated on Holt's land once part of the Maxwell farm.
