Tim Higgins and April MacLelland are the owners of Wind and Wine By-The-Sea in Hulls Cove.

BAR HARBOR — Hulls Cove’s funky Wind and Wine By-The-Sea has a little something for picnic fans, wine lovers, jewelry aficionados and souvenir shoppers.

The small shop, next to the Hulls Cove store at the foot of Breakneck Road, has a unique selection of wines, fancy European cheeses and other edibles that make it the perfect stop before a picnic or a lazy evening on the porch. With wine from Lebanon, Hungary and other remote places, Ms. MacLelland said she is always happy to challenge the tastes of her customers.

Among foods carried by the shop are small containers of sun-dried tomato pesto and artichoke bruschetta, Italian prosciutto, crackers, local smoked salmon, Tuscan sheep’s milk cheese and three-year cheddar. The store also stocks a selection of microbrews, wine tools and glasses, art, sea glass jewelry and artisan body care products.

Mr. Higgins is a Bar Harbor native. His father, Butch, was fire chief here for many years. He is the captain of Acadia National Park’s 34-foot lobster-style boat the Miss Anne and has worked for the park for 31 years.

Wind and Wine is open daily from noon to 7 p.m.
