Oyster River Winegrowers


We are a small farm winery in Warren, ME. We have a tasting room in Camden, ME & in the summer our Warren barn opens as a popular gathering spot for adventurous wine drinkers. Since 2007 we have been making lively wines and ciders in a low-intervention style from both our own fruit, and fruit sourced from other growers in the Northeast. Our own vineyards and orchards are managed organically. Brian Smith is the winemaker. He has a traditional education in winemaking from Fresno State University, and uses that knowledge base to make distinct wines in ways that may have been common in pre-industrial times. Most of our fermentations start spontaneously with wild yeasts that occur on the fruit and in the cellar, and play out over the course of several months. We add nothing and take nothing away from the natural chemistry of the fruit. Our ciders and sparkling wines are bottled without the addition of sulfites and are unfiltered. Our still wines are minimally sulfited where necessary.
