Wooden Bear L Winery is located just south of Simcoe in Norfolk County. We started the winery as a value-added business for our apple orchard entity Calmark Orchards Ltd., growing and processing apples such as McIntosh, Empire, Red Delicious, Golden Delicious, Ida Red, and Spy. From these apples and other varieties sourced in Norfolk, we produce varietal and blended apple wines and cider products. We also produce grape wines and other fruit wines that are Domestic and International award winning.

Our philosophy is to produce small batches of product, using only locally-sourced raw ingredients. Adhering to a winemaking process using less abrasive procedures to maintain natural flavours, aromas, colours, and textures.
