About Lyndon Smith

Farming and wine runs in Lyndon’s blood. His grandfather taught irrigation techniques around the world for the World Bank and his great-great-grandfather farmed and produced wine in Brignoles, France. As a youth, foraging for crab apples, choke cherries, raspberries, blackberries, and blueberries was a common occurrence. As an adult, Lyndon began to discover the wonderful world of fermentation, making kvas, vinegar & cider in his basement. After founding a wine distribution company and working in the wine world for a time, he quickly realized making wine and working with plants was his true passion. When the opportunity arose to purchase Cedar Grove Blueberry Farm and build a craft winery and cidery with his sister, Lyndon jumped at the opportunity.
