Archibald’s Orchard & Estate Winery is a fourth generation family farm. Originally established in 1967 as a wholesale operation, Fred & Sandy Archibald have developed the family farm into agri-tourism destination!
Fred is the grower & the wine maker at Archibald Orchards & Estate Winery. After 10 years of wine making “for the fun of it”, his hobby became an important aspect of the family business. Growing up in Niagara’s fruit belt & eating a lot of fruit certainly influenced his concept of what he thought fruit wine should taste like – “like the fruit is made from”.
In June 1997, Fred & Sandy opened the doors to Archibald Orchards & Estate Winery with 8 selections on their wine list. Today there are 20 selections to choose from ranging from very dry to dessert “ice wine types”. Their wines and ciders are now available to purchase online in Ontario! They also have an Apple Market and Play Area, and when apples are in season you can Pick-Your-Own apples.
Their focus is “as local as possible”. In their winery you can find all sorts of locally made chocolates, cookies, preserves, jams, cheeses, honey, soaps and more!
