Cold Creek Vineyards
Cider maker Chris’ passion for cider and growing apples comes directly from his early days growing up in a small community surrounded by many orchards:
“In fact, my first job as a student was working in an orchard owned by Highland Creek legend Cameron Watson, who was a catalyst and inspiration for my dream of starting an orchard that honoured varietals which thrive in the North shore of Lake Ontario.”
Since, the County has enhanced Chris’ romance of traditional cider-making days when cider was made on a farm with its adjacent orchards that could be harvested in small batches, utilizing traditional old-world philosophy.
At Cold Creek Vineyards, we believe that farmhouse cider is more than a region of apple origin or a fermentation method- it’s a philosophy that yields a beverage with a strong sense of place.
