Hi all

I have just returned from three weeks in New England. I spent a week visiting wineries in Finger Lakes then drove through Vermont to Maine where we stayed in Bar Harbor on Mount Desert Island. The name comes from the bare stone peak of Mt Cadillac, highest on the eastern seaboard, but the island is no desert. It is cut with fiords and packed with pure lakes and clear streams. Forests cover the island and blueberries grow wild. Most of the island is covered by Acadia National Park, the first in the eastern USA.

I didnít expect to find a winery surrounded by vineyards, but I did, and they make wine from local blueberries which I had to taste. The winery is owned by the Maffucci family and daughter Enrica poured me a glass and told me about the winery and their future plans. Read about my visit here

Travelling by air is a chore these days and there are complications if, like me, you want to bring back souvenir bottles of wine. The following articles on the subject were recently added to the site:

Taxing Travellers Wine

Will there be a nasty surprise waiting for you at your destination? Many countries like to tax travellers who carry alcohol.

What is a Case of Wine?

In the wine business a case of wine has long meant twelve 750ml bottles, which totals 9 litres. But why are there twelve bottles in a case?
