Barr Estate Winery began as a family business in 2009. Born out of a passion for hand-crafted fruit wines, the winery was set up just outside of Sherwood Park by Rick and Amy Barr. Amy has a history of farming on her side. Her grandfather began growing raspberries on his farm, and these family-grown plants are what goes into Barr Estate Winery’s fruit wines today. They produce two wines: The Barb made from rhubarb, and The Other Red made from their family heritage raspberries. The philosophy at Barr Estate Winery is to be true to the fruit. All their fruit is hand-picked, and herbicide/pesticide-free. True stewards of the land, this family believes in sustainable wine-making practices. They employee a small herd of sheep to weed the property. They use no sorbate or sulphites in their wines.
