Hi, we’re Alicia and Garren. We’re third generation farmers family based in Thedford, Ontario. We started making Cider & Wine right here on our farm, where we live with our dog Denver. It all started at Shale Ridge Estate Winery with alcohol, an industry that hasn’t evolved since prohibition. It’s still ruled by huge liquor companies that spend big to get their products on the liquor shelves and in bars. And you’re stuck with their choices. Sketchy ingredients, too much sugar, outdated aesthetics, and too many hangovers. Something needed to change, and as wine makers and grape farmers, we knew alcohol could be different. It can come right from the farms, not factories.

It can be fermented naturally and made with real fruits and not artificial flavours. So we created our own alcohol brand. We made our first batch of Cider in our two-car garage in car boys from fresh pressed apples from the farm. Today each bottle and can are still handcrafted by our family in Thedford — we’re proud to be making something you can feel good about drinking.
