Fall checklist: apples, check, sweet cider, check, hard cider, check, apple brandy, check, lots of customers, check, space in tasting room… hmmm.
Okay folks, we’re going to try something new this year. From 1PM to 4PM on Saturday and Sunday during September and October, we’re going to 5 For Free tasting only. No full flights. We’re happy to do full paid flights earlier in the day, at the end of the day, and during the week. (We’re open every day but Tuesday.) But we’re got to try something new for our weekend after-lunch crunch. So we’re going to test out this change, and see if it helps shorten the waiting.
Glad you all are coming to see us and making the line in the first place!
The Tasting Room will be open from Noon ’till 5pm on Monday.
Our Tasting Room hours are expanding to include Fridays. We are also officially adding an hour to the beginning and ending of the day. So that’s Fridays 12-5, Saturdays 10-5 and Sundays 12-5. From now until Daylight Savings Time ends.
And yes, that includes this coming 4th of July! We hope to even have some Bunting Berry Cider by the afternoon.
See you soon,
We will be open 12-4 on Memorial Day
We will be open 5/3 and 5/4 – and every weekend through mid-December – for our 13th Tasting Room Season. We’ve got new batches of most of our ciders and spirits ready for your enjoyment. Come out and see us soon!
Our annual Twelfth Night Wassail is coming up fast – as in next Sunday. We’ll open the winery at 4pm and go out into the orchard between 5 and 5:30.
Being your friends and give thanks to the trees for a bountiful harvest.
RSVPs appreciated, but not necessary.
If its a blizzard, we’ll post a cancelation here and on Facebook.
Charles is at the Cidery doing racking and filtering today.
We are closing today. Take care and don’t drive if you don’t have to. The snow is not deep, but its really slippery.
Honest (Pear Brandy)
Brown Dog Whiskey (80 and 104 proof)
Appely Doux and Pear represent 2/3 of our best sellers. We should be good on Appely Doux through the end of the season – which is 12/15/13 this year.
We will be returning to scheduled weekend hours with midweek by-appointment next week.
Our annual Wassail is on the calendar for 1/5/14 – weather permitting.
And for those keeping track, yes, we have sold out of Perry, Porissimo Traditionale and Summers End since the last update.
We are now out of bottled draft cider in the Tasting Room for 2013. We do have sixth barrels of Barn Swallow.
We’ve started several of next year’s batches, so new ciders are on their way!
The rest of our product availability remains like last week’s update.
