Every bottle of Big Claw Wine sold generates financial support for the Lobster Institute – The non-profit caretaker for the lobster fisheries and lobstermen and women who make their living from this great resource.
A portion of all sales are contributed to the Lobster Institute to help sustain a healthy lobster resource, a vital lobster fishery, and the heritage of local fishing communities on the Coast of Maine.
Both Tim and Steve firmly believe that a wine that was designed to complement Maine’s best loved resource should give something back.
They developed a donation program supporting the Lobster Institute both financially and by creating awareness for the important work they do in sustaining this historic fishery.
The Lobster Institute, with guidance and involvement from fishermen and all constituents within the lobster industry, and with both a community and global perspective, conducts and provides for research and educational outreach focused on protecting, conserving, and enhancing lobsters and lobstering as an industry…and as a way of life.

“We wholesale to retail stores and restaurants throughout the State of Maine and in the summer of 2009, it was our number one selling wine.”Tim Wisseman
