Domaine Leduc-Piedimonte, owned by Robert McKeown and Andrée St-Denis, is a new Québec-based cider house located in Rougemont, in the heart of the apple orchards. The owners chose to name the cider house after their maternal grandmothers: Leduc is Andrée’s grandmother’s last name and Piedimonte is the last name of Robert’s grandmother. They wanted to emphasize the fact that it is a family-run business and to attach strong symbolic roots to the tradition they wish to preserve.

Robert has worked with an oenologist and an agronomist since his very first year of operation in order to perfect his knowledge and to have access to experienced guides while learning his new profession. The two owners immediately discovered a true passion for cider and they are very satisfied with their initial results and also very optimistic given their sincere hope that Domaine Leduc-Piedimonte ciders will become the reference among connoisseurs.
After several experiences with different types of apples, Robert and Andrée made their selection and the first harvest resulted in 600 bottles of dry cider, 2,300 bottles of sparkling cider (traditional method), 7,000 bottles of ice cider and 2,300 bottles of ice cider, private reserve. According to enthusiasts who have tasted the products at the cider house or at shows, the result is surprising
