THE STORY OF UNION LIBRE cidre & vin

Situated on the hills of Dunham, UNION LIBRE cidre & vin is all about the art of savoir-faire rooted in imagination and creativity. As the first producer of fire cider, the estate produces distinctive ciders and wines. In many ways, our 70-acre estate is modest. However, it holds within it unimaginable treasures that are reflected in the unique character of the soil of the Dunham region. The layers of soil, rich in minerals, rest upon a clay foundation that represents the heritage of the ice age. This mosaic upon which we’ve chosen to grow an orchard and vineyard reminds us that many generations, from the First Nations to the loyalists, have worked this nourishing land. Every cider, every wine is a result of the concerted efforts of a whole line of people. Guided by tradition, science and instinct, our team produces vintages that express the complexity of the soil and capture the essence of the varieties selected upon blending.
