Since then “Pīlādži” has been cultivating a variety of fruits and berries such as apples, pears and grapes. An exceptional apple harvest lead to further cultivation of other fruits and berries. Coincidently government legislation was made that reduced the requirements for small manufacturers of wine and other alcoholic drinks, and so a third industry was created. Today the Zilver Home Winery produces more than 10 varieties of berries, fruits, forest berries and flower wines.
