About

We are a small winery that handcrafts fine fruit wines utilizing "whole fruit" ferment processes.

Winemaker

We are Jim and Julie Sheppard, the sole owners and vintners of Sheppard Fruit Wines. We currently produce over 500 cases of wine per year from local and regional fruits, berries and rhubarb. Being wine makers for over 12 years, our affection is to hand craft unique, fine fruit wines, worthy of your discernment.

History

We started making wine at home over 12 years ago. We felt it would be fun to use the local fruits for wine making. The wonderful nuances that came from the fruits were quite rewarding, they were more so than just alcoholic juice. When we had 13 carboys crammed in the kitchen pantry, aging various wines, our friends suggested we offer our wines commercially. It's the start of our dream, which we hope will benefit our whole community.
