Twin Pines is a cidery that does it all. Grow, pick, press and bottle. They have over 50 varieties of trees and are pressing over one million litres of cider per year.
In 2015 Twin Pines entered the largest cider competition in the world held in Grand Rapids Michigan, and they took away ‘Best in Show’.
Located in Thedford, Twin Pines is situated in an ideal tourist location. There are a number of cottages nearby which are both seasonal and permanent, as well as larger economical bases like Sarnia and London to draw from.
The proximity to Lake Huron entices beachers and boaters to visit the cidery and take home multiple varieties of their delicious cider.
Co-Owner and Cider Maker Mike Vansteenkiste is enjoying the new trend toward wineries, breweries and cideries in the Sarnia-Lambton area, and the culture in Sarnia-Lambton is positive one, Mike reflected.
“Everybody has an easy going approach when they come here. It’s more like a neighbourly way of dealing.”
