Cheers! Today, February 18th, is National Drink Wine Day. Whether you wish to celebrate the occasion with a group of friends, your significant other, or maybe even alone, we've got you covered...with a list of the best places to go out for wine in Northern New England. You'll notice that several of these places are in Portland, but we've also included a few in other parts of Maine as well. Happy wine-ing!

MJ's Wine Bar
Of course we had to start with this one. After all, it's located at One City Center, in the heart of Downtown Portland. They serve an array of delicious wine, beer, cheese, snacks, and fun.

The North Point
A visually exciting, warm, romantic Portland restaurant dining and bar experience – minus any attitude or pretension.

Bar of Chocolate
My personal favorite! Located in the Old Port in Portland, they have a great selection of wine, martinis, and desserts.

Old Vines Wine Bar
A Rustic-chic bistro in Kennebunk, in a converted bi-level barn offering inventive small plates, cocktails & wine.

Corks Wine Bar at Bedford Village Inn
Located in Bedford, NH, Cork's blends the old with the new; chic décor features bamboo floors, rich cherry wood paneling, gold-flecked cork wallpaper, a modern fireplace, and an under-lit onyx bar. Corks offer wines by the glass and the bottle, as well as barrel samples, flights, and personal blends.
