Michael Terrien uncorked his first batch of wild Maine blueberry wine — Bluet at Eventide Oyster Co. on May 5, 2015 at an informal tasting. Terrien, a well-known California winemaker grew up in Cape Elizabeth and creates wines for vineyards like Obsidian Ridge.
“The fermentation unlocks the essence of the blueberry,” said Terrien. “The aromas really pop.”
Fermented in the methode champenoise tradition, Bluet is an upscale made-in-Maine low alcohol wine that will be distributed primarily in Maine this summer.
Bluet will be available in late-June.
