With little ado, we sold out of the 2011 Perry this weekend and switched over to the 2012 expression. The 2012 was only finished last week – which seems like really good timing to me.
We will be starting our Summer Hours this Friday. Adding Fridays and extending to 5 PM.
Midweek by appointment.
We are thrilled to have our Pear Wine back in the Tasting Room. Thanks to Bill, Marianne, Ralph, Kyle, Cassie, Conner, Kitty, Rose, Terry, Beth and George, (and Milissa and Charles) we bottled 240 cases today – our biggest single bottling to date.
So come on out and enjoy the fruits of their labor.
Two releases in one weekend!
Thanks to Kitty and Milissa, this year’s ‘pomage’ of our traditional English-ish draft cider is available. It’s the partner to our English-ish dry, tannic Orchard Oriole Perry, which is also ready for sale now.
The Kinglet is not as short supply as the Oriole – but I don’t expect it to last the Summer. So stop in to the ÆppelTreow Tasting Room some weekend soon.
This year’s draft perry, from estate-grown traditional English perry cultivars, is bottled, and will be released this weekend, May 25-26th.
Due to the poor crop following the Horrid Torrid March of Twenty Twelve, this batch of Orchard Oriole Perry is very limited – just 17 cases. You’ll have to come to the Tasting Room to get some – but we will reserve some for you by phone or email.
I will admit that I had some during bottling last night – and it’s pretty tasty.
The 2011 pomage of Pommeaux is gone from the Tasting Room.
We are on track to release the 2012 Orchard Oriole Perry and Kinglet Bitter Draft Cider next weekend. These will be Tasting Room exclusives this year.
We also have all the glass on hand to bottle up more dessert wines. You should come out and see how stuffed the winery is right now.
Low Inventory :
Pommeaux Apple Dessert wine. More will be ready in early summer. Call if you’d like some of the current batch set aside.
Poirissimo! Pear Dessert Wine
WI Immature Brandy.
As of today, 5/4/13, our Tasting Room is resuming regular weekend hours.
We are often there earlier, but if you need us to before 11 or after 4, it’s best to call ahead.
The orchard is running behind this year. The current guestimate is 2 week to Bloom.
Welcome back to Spring and AeppelTreow Cidery and Distillery!
