We’ve decided to call the wassail this year. We thought about holding it indoors, but this wind is going to make highway 142 and the driveways awful.
We’ll try to catch up with a special event during bloom.
Thank you again, dear Friends and Fans, for a great 2013.
Down to the last 5 cases of our experimental blackberry / raspberry port-style.
Come soon, or call ahead to reserve.
Road improvement may be progress and all, but it does present a bit of a hassle. If you’re coming to see us this summer, and traveling I-94, here are some tips.
From the North. The last I knew Highway 142 was still open if southbound from Racine or Milwaukee. That will change. Get off on Highway 11 and take it east to Kansasville. Turn left on US45 and follow that south to Highway 142. Turn right and go west 3 miles to County B. We have a sign there. Turn right and go up half a mile. We’re on the left.
From the South. Get off at Highway 158 (one past 50, which is now closed). Turn left at the end of the ramp and go under the highway. Visit our friends at Tim & Tom’s Cheese. Then follow the frontage road north. Follow the signs for the Mars Cheese Castle. Visit our friends there. Then take Highway 142 west 10 miles to County B, as above.
The other option for the north bound Zax is to go up to Highway 11 and follow the directions for the South bound Zax.
As of 7/23, we are at peak product availability. But it won’t last. So come see us soon.
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’ve hit the 5 case remaining level with the Orchard Oriole Perry. We told you it would go fast, since it was such a small batch. Email, message or phone us if you want some reserved for you.
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.
We will be open from 10am-2pm while we bottle up some draft cider.
Charles and Milissa will be in Michigan this weekend to train cider judges, and steward and judge one of the worlds biggest cider-exclusive competitions.
Which means there will not be any appointments available this weekend.
But we’ll be back next week.
From 10-4 while we work on stuff. Stock up for New Year’s!
