Tours & Tastings

Archibald's Orchard

Tours & Tastings are on hold due to COVID 19.

We are currently offering Curb Side Service & Online Orders only.  We look forward to being open some time soon for Complimentary wine & cider tasting!

Wine/Cider Tasting!

Did you know that we offer free wine tasting – 4 samples – whenever we are open?  Our wine list ranges from very dry to sweet “ice” style dessert wines.  We also have 7 ciders.  Sparkling, light & refreshing.  While tasting, we are happy to share our story as well as suggested food pairings.

Although we are unable to offer individual tours, here’s an idea for a Wine Tasting Experience.  Give a Gift Certificate to purchase a bottle of wine after your recipient enjoys complimentary wine tasting here.  Also, there are some great restaurants that you could add to the experience.  Just a thought!


The perfect experience for Bachelorettes, Adult Birthday Parties, Anniversaries, Interest Groups, Friends Afternoon Out…
