Copy of About Us

Barr Estate Winery


As we are a family business, we all participate in every step. Mike and Jeanette Cholowsky are Amy’s parents and our business partners. Together they established the fruit using raspberries grown by Jeanette’s father. Her family homesteaded in the County of Strathcona many years ago. Her father started growing raspberries on the farm and years later Jeanette was able to nurture a few of those heritage plants into thousands that we use today when making our wine. The family history makes this very special to us. We also have a number of first generation fruits that we are experimenting with to create enchanting wines for you.
