Lyndon Smith

Botanist & Barrel  |  Cedar Grove, NC

Lyndon and his family own Cedar Grove Blueberry Farm just north of Hillsborough, NC. After founding a wine distribution company and working in the wine world for a time, he quickly realized making wine and working with plants was his true passion. When the opportunity arose to purchase Cedar Grove Blueberry Farm and build a craft winery and cidery with his sister, Lyndon jumped at the opportunity. 

Crafting a variety of barrel-aged and stainless steel dry wines and cider, Botanist and Barrel and the B&B tasting room are beautifully situated on the farm. As organic farmers, Botanist and Barrel believes in using only the finest southeastern grown fruits, blueberries, blackberries, raspberries, peaches and apples. The team subscribes to light-handed winemaking, using centuries-old techniques, allowing the fruits, yeast and barrels that are carefully selected to be vivid and expressive.
