Arterberry Ciderworks (1978- ?)

First Cidery in Oregon

In the late 1970’s Fred Arterberry, Jr. opened Arterberry Ciderworks, in McMinneville and produced his first hard cider in 1978.  This was the first cidery in Oregon.

The Ciderworks provided hard cider for all the McMenamin’s pubs in operation at that time.

Arterberry sourced several varieties of apples for his cider from local growers in Sheridan.

In about 1979 Arterberry opened Arterberry Winery and began production of methode’ champenoise sparkling Chardonnay, premium Pinot Noir, and other still wines.
