Waupoos Winery & Sugarbush

3016 County Road 8, Waupoos

waupoosKyle Baldwin’s family has been making maple syrup for generations. His grandmother’s family began the tradition in Quebec long ago – this was passed down to his father who began making syrup in Consecon in the early 1980’s. Shortly after, Kyle began tapping his own trees and continuing the family legacy. His mother was originally from Waupoos, so it seemed a perfect fit when Kyle began working with Waupoos Winery. Noticing a substantial sugarbush behind the barn on the north side of the property, Kyle finally convinced original owners Ed Neuser & Rita Kaimins to allow him to begin tapping the trees in 1997. It’s clear that Kyle has true passion for what he does, and enjoys bringing another great product onto the shelves of the Waupoos tasting room.

waupoosWaupoos Winery has always been a supporter of the Maple in the County festival. Last year they expanded their programming to include a pancake breakfast in the morning, and a traditional meal of ham and beans in the afternoon – all prepared by their Chef. For the kids, they will have a petting zoo, maple syrup demos and toffee on snow or ice. Complimentary tastings will be offered at the winery all weekend – and maple syrup will be readily available!
