Curt Sherrer has always had a finger in making alcohol. He studied wine making and viticulture at U.C. Davis. He graduated with a degree in fermentation science. Sherrer then went on to make wine in Maryland and Virginia for 10 years.
In 2003, Sherrer acquired an old grist mill in Monkton. After restoring the mill, he wanted to revive one of the building’s old functions. “All the old little farms had their orchards and every farm made their hard cider,” Sherrer said.
