2015 Wassail Jan 3, 2015

Status

Join us on Saturday January 3, 2015 for our annual Wassail.  The winery will open at 4PM and shortly after 5PM, we’ll go out into the orchard to toast the trees.

All are welcome. Please RSVP with an email to cider @ appletrue.com – or leave a message on the winery phone.  Not strictly necessary, but we like to have an idea of how many we are expecting.

Come help us thank the orchard.

New Season, New Hours

Status

With the change of the season, marked by the end of Daylight Savings Time, we are reverting to our Winter hours.  That’s Saturday 11-4 and Sunday 12-4.  We are often there a bit early – and you call/email for an early appointment or a midweek appointment.  We tend not to stay too late – since it gets really dark out on the farm.

We’ve made it through peak season (Hurray!) with a bit of most products left – but not much.  We are low on Kinglet Bitter, Sparrow Spiced, Pommeaux and the Blenheim Orange Single Barrel Cider.  We have plenty of Sparkling Cider and Perry, Apple Brandy and Brown Dog Whiskey.

Thanks for making it a great Fall Season.  We’ll be open weekends until December 14th.  Our orchard partner, Brightonwoods, will be open until the Wednesday before Thanksgiving.

Fall Tasting Policy Update

Status

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!

Tasting Room Hours Update

Status

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,
Charles
