Sawyers Specialties in Southwest Harbor, Maine offers a wonderful assortment of wine and cheese. They offer tastings one Saturday each month, and will always help you determine what your palate might prefer.

If I have guests coming over for dinner or for cocktails late afternoon, I always visit Sawyers for my favorites. This assortment included Tallegio, Parmesan, Canadian Cheddar, Salametti, black olives with garlic and South African peppers (also known as Peppadews). I mixed up a bottle of Rose, a sizeable dash of Limoncello and a splash of club soda for this light and refreshing summer drink!

Even Food & Wine magazine was amazed by the selection in this small town.

Sawyer’s Market is owned by another brother and is equally as wonderful.
