Inventory Update 10/30/13 : Should be stable to the end of the year


We have:
Appely Doux
Pear Wine
Apple Brandy
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.

Now on Fall Hours


We have taken up our autumn schedule : 12-5 every day but Tuesday. Open early (10am) on Saturday.

Tuesday we rest from the craziness, so appointments -aren’t- available.

Our orchard partner, Brightonwoods, is open 9-6 daily, with a zillion kinds of apples and fresh pressed sweet cider.

Kinglet Bitter ’12 Release


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.

Orchard Oriole Perry ’12 Release


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.


Product Goings and Comings


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.
