19 Acres Cider Co.

18055 SW Seiffert Rd, Sherwood, OR 97140


Begin your Willamette Valley Cider adventure Southwest of Portland in Sherwood, Oregon. 19 Acres Cider Co. was conceived when the folks at
Oregon Heritage Farms decided to try their hand at pressing. Today, four decades of apple growing know-how meet modern cidermaking techniques, offering tasting room visitors year-round flaships and limited run seasonals. Order the sampler flight and charcuterie board to taste a variety and experiment with cider pairing. The thoughtfully designed tasting room, featuring reclaimed wood and picturesque floor to ceiling windows, welcomes guests to relax and take in tranquil countryside views. A unique 19 Acres sighting you’ll want to spot is the miniature railway trestle with miles of tracks that wind the property.

In addition to their own ciders, la Familia pours a rotating selection of guest taps and offers a variety of cans and bottles to-go.
