Domaine Pinnacle is a family-owned orchard, cidery, and maple-grove located near the village of Frelighsburg in the Eastern Townships of Quebec, Canada.

Founded in 2000 by Charles Crawford [1] and Susan Reid as a cidery, the company's products are available today in more than 50 countries, having won more than 60 gold medals in prestigious national and international competitions.[2]

Location[edit]

Located near Mount Pinnacle in Frelighsburg, the estate hosts century-old apple orchards and a farmhouse originally built in 1859. The farmhouse’s distinguishing feature is an octagonal rooftop lookout turret that was used to keep a watch on the nearby Vermont border. Local residents claim that, in its first years, the house served as a stop on the famous underground railroad providing a safe haven for slaves seeking freedom. Many years later, it became a convenient meeting place for bootleggers during the Prohibition Era.

Also located on the property is Domaine Pinnacle’s boutique,[3] open year-round to the public and offering tastings of products with appropriate food pairings, self-guided tours and an interpretation center demonstrating the company’s heritage and production process.
