Meet your local wine and cider maker, Geoff McDonald.
Bains Road Cider Company is Haldimand County’s first and only licensed winery and has been functioning since 2011. Geoff and his family purchased a derelict mushroom farm in 2007 and began renovating it into the business of their dreams, and they haven’t looked back since. Offering a wide range of wines and ciders, Geoff has created a selection of delicious old-fashioned beverages that will give you a great taste of Haldimand.
Geoff produces small batches made from locally sourced fruits providing quality drinks for the community over the last decade. Bains Road Cider’s flavorful variety includes Wild Pear Cider, Strawberry Cider, Sparkling Apple and Sparkling Peach Wine, Black Currant Dessert Wine, Iced Apple Cider, and much more.
Geoff has been attending the Dunnville Farmers Market for many years and has been expanding to include the Caledonia Farmers Market on Thursdays. Geoff is excited to be able to share his product with his neighboring communities.
