It starts with heirloom apples

We carefully cultivate and select the apple varietals for our cider. With such a rich heritage of apple growing in the Okanagan, we’re spoiled for choice.

We raise and harvest a variety of heirloom cider apples, as well as crab and dessert apples at our orchards in Summerland.

Small-batch cider from branch to bottle

We do everything by hand so that we can craft the highest quality cider, experiment with some interesting ingredients and techniques, and keep it fun.

2019 Harvest Experimental Series

Single-varietal heritage apples, wild yeasts, co-fermentation with other tree-fruit from our farm and natural conditioning techniques.

These are unique one-off experiments that we may or may not make again.

Available at the tasting room, to Cider Club members and some select stockists.

Founded by three friends

We all grew up in the countryside: Robin in southern England, Luke in Saskatchewan, and Mike right here in Summerland.

We started Dominion Cider Co. because we wanted to create something from scratch, with our hands, on land that we steward. We wanted to build a company that celebrates with a cold cider after a day of hard work. A company that is enduring, sustainable, and honest.

We named our cidery after the
Dominion Experimental Farms

Dominion Experimental Farms was an agricultural network stretching from coast to coast created in the late 1800s to support Canadian farmers. It's got more than a century of history here in Summerland, BC. It’s a name that means heritage, collaboration, and innovation — values that inspire us.

Set up to study and develop new apple varieties introduced by early settlers from Europe, the Dominion Experimental Farm created a legacy of distinctive heritage apples around here. Over time, as tastes changed, many orchards were replaced by vineyards – the heritage apples forgotten. We're bringing them back.

Community

We care about the local community and are aware of our responsibility as a company to contribute positively to that community’s social and environmental fabric. We’re making purposeful contributions every year to support the issues that are important to us. This year, we’re supporting the important work of the following organizations.

  • Hogan’s Alley Society
    A non-profit organization committed to daylighting the presence of Black history in Vancouver and throughout British Columbia.

  • Pacific Association of First Nations Women
    Advocacy for systems change, providing Indigenous, culturally safe learning and holistic support to uplift Indigenous women and strengthen families.

  • Summerland Food Bank
    The Summerland Food Bank provides emergency food and information and referral services for people in need in Summerland.

  • Penticton Soupeteria
    Providing anyone in need with a bowl of fresh made hearty hot soup with a sandwich and a dessert every day of the year.

  • Wavaw Rape Crisis Centre
    A feminist, anti-oppressive, decolonizing rape crisis centre providing support services and advocating for social and systemic change through education, outreach and activism.

Made in a little quonset on our farm

From branch to bottle, we do everything by hand at our farm: from picking apples and pressing juice, to bottling and drinking it with you at our on-site tasting bar. And we are pretty lucky to have a bunch of family and friends help out with every aspect of the process. Come by and share some cider with us.
