Short Cigars to Smoke on Cold Days

It’s winter in Maine — the cold days are here. If you don’t care to (or aren’t allowed to) smoke inside, it can get mighty nippy smoking a big stogie outside. No one wants frostbite being in the elements for an hour or longer in freezing weather. The solution is not to give up smoking …

Old Port Wine — Legs

Admit it, you’ve heard it before. “This wine has great legs,” someone pronounces after staring carefully at their newly poured glass of wine. The person seems to know what she is talking about so you nod your head and smile, all the while thinking: legs, really? So what’s this legs business all about? Ask a …

Absolutely wonderful people doing a great thing here in Portland, Maine! They are always so helpful and friendly. I will never go anywhere else for ANY of my wine purchases!

Alorie Childs

Hands down, the best wine shop in the city. The staff is truly passionate about wine and friendly to the point of this being a spot where the regulars drop by to chat! Jacques and his team provide fantastic customer service. They will go out of their way to help you get what you’re looking for, going so far as to call their competitors around town for you and send you there if they can’t get something themselves! Their prices are very fair, and it’s always worth checking out the specials in the store’s front. I’ve scored some absolute gems this way. Always be sure to ask Jacques what’s new in the store. His enthusiasm can’t help but rub off on you. Also, don’t miss their tastings!

Christopher Sprague

As one of my first real experiences with a fine cigar store, this was awesome. I came in was immediately greeted by someone. I went into the cigar room, took my time, made my selections, and in total, around $50+ worth definitely will be coming back to get more in the future.

Austin Goucher

Jacques and his staff run one of the best wine shops in the state, and their customer service is second to none. Their recommendations are always great, and they will take time to ‘talk wine’ with you when you’re looking for something special or new. They stock many wines not available elsewhere in town, and you can tell his staff knows what they’re talking about.

Thomas Marczak

Old Port Wine Merchants is the finest wine shop around. With highly knowledgeable staff and an owner who treats all of his customers with great respect, they are my go-to shop for all of my wine needs. We love you, OPWM!
