Hotcakes for Haiti

Maple Moon Sugarbush and Winery will be serving “Hotcakes for Haiti,” Wednesday, June 17 at Maple Moon Sugarbush and Winery from 9AM – 12 PM.  You may enjoy 3 fresh hotcakes with Maple Moon’s own pure maple syrup, 2 sausage links and coffee for a suggested donation amount of $10 per adult and $5 per child. Bring your family and friends!  100%of proceeds will go to Reciprocal Ministries International (RMI).


Our family and church work directly with RMI to support a Haitian village in the remote mountains of southwest Haiti. Our church, Walloon Lake Community Church, partners hand to hand with the Baptist church in Desriveaux, Haiti.  We have sent 5 teams to love and encourage our sister church in the last 7 years. Four Petersen (Maple Moon) family members have gone and the youngest two are eager to go after hearing our testimonies.  But until then, we would like to buy them some goats. The families who receive the goats are not allowed to eat them or sell them.  They must care for them, breed them and then they are allowed to sell the offspring. It is life transforming. We are also hoping to sponsor more children in the HOPE for KIDS program. Hope for Kidz is meeting the educational and physical needs of Haitian children in Desriveaux who are otherwise unable to attend school. To learn more about RMI, you may visit https://www.rmibridge.org/

If you are unable to attend but you would like to make a donation, you may write a check out to RMI and send it to:

               5475 Lee Street, Suite 301
               Lehigh Acres, FL 33971

You can also call RMI at +1 (877) 764 - 5439 or donate online at http://www.rmibridge.org/

What makes Maple Moon so unique?

They are...

America's First Maple Winery! 

This confuses some people, so here is a brief explanation...

Maple Moon ferments the sugars in the maple syrup instead of fermenting the sugars found in grapes or other fruits.  The base wine is DRY (with zero residual sugar).  So their wines range from dry to sweet.  What makes them sweet?  Well.. they add more maple syrup (of course) after fermentation.  They never use cane sugar or any other sweeteners.  However,  they do have some traditionally fermented wines for those not brave enough to try a maple wine. :) So... don't dismiss it from your list of wineries because you think it will be too sweet.  You will be pleasantly surprised!



"I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing.”   John 15:5 (NIV)

"It is God who works in you to will and to act according to His good purpose."  Philippians 2:13





April 2019: Wonderful people, interesting and informative tour - highlight of our weekend. Great products!

September 2018: We went to this winery and another one as a last minute side trip because they were a few miles from each other. We walked into the Maple Moon winery 10 minutes before closing and was welcomed in to the tasting room by one of the owners. We were not rushed in anyway. We did the tasting and enjoyed the maple based wines very much. I talked shop with the owner as I am a wine maker too. We purchased a bottle of wine and plan to visit again when we are in the area. This is a wonderful boutique winery. The prices of the wine may seem steep compared to grape wines. when your dealing with $50 a gallon maple syrup as your base ingredient compared to a 5lb bag of sugar and 5lbs of grapes costing $8 the price per bottle is going to be higher. We did stop into the other winery and didn't stay long because it is just like any other grape wine winery with a limited selection of wines. Maple Moon Winery is well worth the experience and money spent.


January 2018: My husband and I visited you in October.  The honey is the best. We bought some to bring home. I ordered a 2 pound jar before Christmas, and ordered two 2 pound jars just now. It really is the best we have ever had. Hope to visit, again, this year. God bless! Tim and Brenda 

November 2017: My husband and I visited the winery and absolutely loved all the wines we tasted.  We also purchased some black bean salsa and maple rub and can't wait to use them.  The staff and owner are so very friendly and welcoming and have such an amazing story to share.  We are so happy we visited, it was one of the highlights of our vacation.

August 19, 2017: A must see. Very interesting tour and very informative. Very friendly owners.

August 13, 2017: We walked 5 miles from the marina to visit and it was worth every step! The blueberry was my favorite, but all were great! The tour was very informative, and everyone there was very helpful! Wine from maple sugars is great!

June 6, 2017: The maple syrup is phenomenal, the maple candy is , well, GONE!! So good! So much fun meeting you and hearing about your journey as a sugary! Thanks so much! I will be ordering online for sure!!!

May 20, 2017 : Enjoyed wine tasting. It was obvious that they care about end product. They have the best hard cider hands down. 

April 23, 2017: We will definitely be visiting again. Best wine I've ever had. Truly unique.
