In the early 1980s, Dr. Hilary Rodrigues, a practising dentist to this day, began experimenting with old, traditional Newfoundland recipes for making blueberry wines. His vision of opening Newfoundland’s first winery was realised in 1993. The winery’s first offering was our signature blueberry wine, made with wild Newfoundland low-bush blueberries. Our family of wines expanded over the years and have been honoured with a variety of national and international awards. The addition of a traditional European copper pot distillery, the only commercial distillery in the province, has allowed us to further increase our offerings to include liqueurs, brandies and iceberg vodka.
