Shane & Laurel Coombs welcome you to the home of fine wine, mead, and cider. After making his first batch of beer in 1975 Shane followed in his mothers footsteps and began making wine. During his homemade wine, beer, and mead production Shane has won several hundred awards including multiple national awards. Laurel has been evaluating wine, mead, cider and beer most of her life and is a National Beer Judge. She is Shane’s best (worst) critic as nothing gets by her on how to improve our products.
