Applewood Farm Vineyard
Applewood Farm vineyard will bring you an intriguing variety of very unusual local beverages, including their Crazy 8 Hard Raspberry Cider, a delicious Black Currant Port , a premium Iced Cider like you have never tasted before and their Dragon’s Fyre Meade harking back to ancient times, all using fruit that is harvested right at the Farm.
Applewood Farm Vineyard offers a chance to get out and experience a real country farm and began as one of the first pick your own strawberry and apple farms in Stouffville Ontario. True to its name, Applewood remains the most popular spot in the area to pick fresh strawberries, or spend a breezy afternoon picking apples and to this day is a great destination for young and old to enjoy a little bit of country, close to the city.
The Farm has a commitment to quality, ensuring that you have access to the freshest fruit available. Never has this been more true that with the addition of the winery in September 2000. It has a warm and comfortable atmosphere, a large tasting bar where you can sample award winning wine and chat with the wine maker and enjoy a delicious selection of fruit blend wines that are made from the fruit that is harvested right at the Farm. Applewood Farm has been in the Passafiume family for almost thirty years.
Don’t forget to visit for pumpkins, corn stalks and harvest décor.
