Born and raised in Maine, Aaron received his formal training at the Center for Enology and Viticulture in Walla Walla, Washington. After gaining experience at some of Walla Walla’s finest wineries, he desired to return to his home state. As fate would have it, he met Bettina Doulton on a visit home in 2007 and began his career as Cellardoor's Winemaker the following year. Throughout the years, Aaron has shaped and grown the winery's portfolio to include a broad spectrum of world-class wines.
All these years later, we have proudly embraced, are motivated by, this story and the spirit of welcome meant to be offered to guests. While the door with the fabled hand carving is treasured, we have adopted a current day artist’s interpretation of it as our logo. It is our inspiration to beat our guests’ expectations, to offer a respite from busy lives.
When you see our Hobo symbol, know that you are in a safe and friendly place. We invite you to our Cellardoor properties with open hearts, generosity, and camaraderie. Whether you join us for a tour of our winery, a wine tasting, a food and wine pairing, or one of our big events, we hope you enjoy your time with us.
Owner / Operator
When Bettina first visited Cellardoor in December 2006, she immediately fell in love with the 200-year-old buildings and 68-acre farm. Knowing the Winery was for sale, she realized her longtime dream to run a small business when she became its owner in 2007. Leaving behind a 21-year career at Fidelity Investments managing mutual funds and people, and feeling more reflective after having finished breast-cancer treatment in 2006, Bettina fully embraced that new chapter in her life. On any given day, you may find her greeting guests in the tasting rooms, driving the tractor or forklifts, or punching down grapes during harvest.
Bettina is dedicated to sharing Cellardoor Winery, Maine wines, and all the beauty of Maine with as many visitors as possible. To that end, she founded the Maine Wine Guild and its statewide Wine Trail.
Bettina has found complete joy in the people she works with and the guests who visit. She wants everyone to have a highlight each day and hopes a visit to the Winery will give guests a break from the rat race she remembers all too well.
Practices & Techniques
TODAY // Homelessness and Food Insecurity
To support immediate needs in our communities, we have committed to focus our resources on Midcoast Habitat for Humanity and providing meals for those in need. Our 2017 commitment will be announced in June. We have identified the short list of non-profits being considered.
TOMORROW // Economic Development
To support sustainable, long-term economic growth in Maine, we have teamed up with Bangor Savings Bank for the Amplify Challenge Match Campaign to benefit the Maine Development Foundation. We believe that a stronger economy will bolster work opportunities, create better lives for all Mainers, with less homelessness and hunger.
