Blackbird Cider Works

Visit The Cidery

Interested In Unique Cider Tasting? Want A Private Tour of the Cidery and Orchard?  Have A Large Group Or Party? No Problem!

Visitors are always welcome at our cidery! In our tasting room the friendly, knowledgeable staff will guide you through a cider tasting; offering anecdotes and suggesting food pairings for our hard ciders. Take a peek at our operation through the windows to our production area, or go on a private orchard tour (must be scheduled ahead of time). Located on the Niagara Wine Trail, we’re nestled along Lake Ontario just north of the Village of Barker. We’re approximately one hour from both downtown Buffalo and Rochester, but no matter where you’re from, it’s worth the trip. Come on in for a tasting!

Wine tours, large groups, limousines, and buses are happily accepted for cider tastings. If traveling with a group, please refer to our bus, limo and group policy and call ahead to make a reservation. And don’t be shy, our staff are always willing to snap a photo of you and your friends around the cidery – don’t forget to tag us on Facebook. Planning a WNY bachelor or bachelorette party? We’d love to have you! Feel free to contact us with any questions you may have or to inquire about our private orchard tours.
