As we are a family business, we all participate in every step. Mike and Jeanette Cholowsky are Amy’s parents and our business partners. Together they established the fruit using raspberries grown by Jeanette’s father. Her family homesteaded in the County of Strathcona many years ago. Her father started growing raspberries on the farm and years later Jeanette was able to nurture a few of those heritage plants into thousands that we use today when making our wine. The family history makes this very special to us. We also have a number of first generation fruits that we are experimenting with to create enchanting wines for you.
Rick and Amy Barr have worked in heart research for more than 20 years at the University of Alberta. They use their scientific training to create fruit wines of impeccable quality. We at Barr Estate Winery produce three fruit wines, The Other Red™, from raspberries, The Barb™, from rhubarb and The Rhuby™, from rhubarb and strawberries. The best way to enjoy our wines is with no preconceptions. Give the wines an opportunity to entice your senses. Remember, you are your best wine critic.
