About

We use crowdsourced fruit, flowers and honey as well as locally sourced fresh juice to produce quality hard cider, honey mead and fruit wines.
Yes we pick apples, pears, plums and cherries off of local residents’ fruit trees, with permission. We also harvest dandelions, hops and other flowers in season if they are offered to us.

Contact us at urbanforagewinery@gmail.com if you have fruit or flowers you’d like us to pick.

Each of our varieties is made with minimal processing in our stainless steel casks in small batches. We do much of the work the old-fashioned way: by hand. There aren’t any shortcuts to take in the making of real cider, mead or wine.

We also strive to make our products without the use of artificial chemicals. We pasteurize our products to make them shelf stable instead of dosing them with chemical additives. We use low doses of sulfite only when a batch seems to require it, and never use the preservatives that are often overused by other cideries and wineries.

We  have a taproom where we serve draft cider and have wine for sale by the glass. Our taproom is open Thursdays 4-9, Fridays 4-10, Saturdays 1-10 and Sundays 1-5.  We sell mead as well as cider and wine by the bottle for on-site or off-site consumption.  The products that we have available for sale depend on the time of year and on how fast our limited inventory is selling.
