Overview

Archibald Orchards & Estate Winery is a 4th generation family farm located just east of Toronto. Their Fruit Winery offers complimentary sampling of wines ranging from very dry to sweet, ice types. Come the fall, the orchard with some 10,000 trees & 13 different varieties of apples is a great place for Pick Your Own apples. During this time, there is a free children's play area & on weekends fresh cut fries & caramel apple dumplings are available in the Apple Core Cafe. Something for everyone depending on the season!

We love apples and all things apple. Here you will find the best wine with many flavors of apple and other fruits. Sandy and Fred have a paradise here. I enjoy wine tasting and normally buy by the case.

Great place to stop on a weekend with children for picking apples and playing in the maze. Then the adults can tour the winery and gift shop. Great gift ideas for all occasions.

Picking apples is always great fun for all ages. We have a spring event your family might be interested in as well. It's our Honey Bee Apple Blossom Walk. A great time to take family photos when the trees are in bloom!

Thanks for the great review! There's nothing like apples, fresh off the tree. No wax here! We actually grow 13 different varieties. Thank heavens they're not all ready at the same time. That's why those signs with picking dates are so important. Glad that you...More

Sorry to hear that fruit wine is not your "cup of tea" or "verre de vin". It's not for everyone. However, eating fresh apples... well, that is for most people.

Here's an opportunity to enjoy apples in a variety of ways - wine, cider, pie or fresh from the tree. A fun autumn outing.
