Honey Toast cider
Cider sweetened with caramelized (toasted) local honey as well as local buckwheat honey. The dark honey gives the cider an orange color and a flavor redolent of light coffee or roasted pecans. Truly unique among ciders. 22 oz. bottle for 15.78 plus tax

The second pressing of our Edelweiss grapes. We rehydrate the skins and pulp of the white grapes we hand-picked and make a light, fizzy Moscato-like beverage from them. Quite refreshing and a treat for those who love both cider and white wines. 22 oz. bottle for 15.78 plus tax
–out of stock– A higher-alcohol dessert wine made from native plums, in the style of an Eastern European plum wine, rather than the more familiar Japanese style. Sweet and delicious. Careful- it’ll creep up on you! 750 ml. bottle for 35.15 plus tax
Made with real raspberries, not flavoring, this has been a hit since we introduced it. Fresh raspberry flavor, with a nice tart finish. 22 oz. bottle for 15.78 plus tax
Red Velvet melomel
Why is this so expensive?

And. it. is. absolutely. delicious. Unless you are made of ice, you will love this. 750 ml. bottle for 38.88 plus tax

Vin de Pomme
We’re told that in France, the wine cellar workers and field hands make this for their own enjoyment. Here, we take our pressed red grapes and pour hard cider over them and let both ferment in a barrel. The result is a wine/cider hybrid that is surprisingly good. 22 oz. bottle for 15.78 plus tax
