Bottles we sell:

Blackcurrant cider

Originally made from currants grown in our back yard, we’ve taken to sourcing them from a farm near Bayfield as the demand for this has grown.  Taste it and you’ll see why!  Ruby-red and luscious, you’ll soon be hooked.  This is often our bestseller.  22 oz. bottle for 15.78 plus tax

Carrot Wine

-Out of stock- Yes, it’s really made from carrots, and some apples too. Everyone wants to know if it actually tastes like carrots and the answer is: sort of. It’s light orange and has a hint of carrot flavor and the overall impression of a light-bodied white wine. You should try it if you’re curious.  750 ml bottle for 27.77 plus tax.

Cherry apple cider

Just like it sounds, an apple cider base with cherries.  Light red, tart and a bit funky.  Fun as it sounds!  22 oz. bottle for 15.78 plus tax

Cherry melomel

Mead blended with tart cherry wine.  Zingy, tart, bright red, luscious, not too sweet, sexy.  So many descriptions packed into a such a  little bottle, but absolutely delightful.  750 ml. bottle for 27.77 plus tax

Cherry wine

Coming this winter.  A luscious, sweet, deep-red wine made from local tart cherries.  This will be a limited release- get it while  you can!

Dandelion wine

This is one of our favorite recipes- wine made from fresh picked Minneapolis and St. Paul dandelions.   Floral, light, grassy and just slightly bitter.  This is a truly unique wine found in few other places.  750 ml/$18.51 +tax

Dry cider

The first product we produced, and in many ways still the best.  The true essence of Minnesota apples in their finest form, with a bit of sparkle.  With no added sugar, this is a bracing, refreshing drink for a beautiful Minnesota day, winter or summer.    $12.95/ 22 oz. bottle plus tax.

Dry mead

Made from honey, purified water and yeast.  A heavy-bodied, but not-so-sweet nectar of the gods.  You need not wear tights or chainmail to enjoy mead.  It’s quaffed by folk of all sorts.  Higher alcohol than a cider, so please drink responsibly!  $18.51/750 ml. bottle plus tax.

Edelweiss (sweet white wine)

Wonderfully fruity acidity characterizes this refreshing white wine. When paired with food, its clean and bright flavor brings out the best in summer barbecue or a winter feast.  750 m bottle for $27.77 plus tax

Edelweiss barrel dry (dry white)

A dry companion to our original sweet Edelweiss.  The same grapes, but fermented to dry and aged for up to half a year in an old oak barrel.  Clean, refreshing, pairs beautifully with food.  The wine that often goes home with the owners and winemakers.  750 m bottle for $27.77 plus tax

Light and fruity with a hint of acidity, this one may take you by surprise.Deep pink from a natural source- Frontenac Gris grapes from a farm near Mankato with just a hint of Frontenac Noir.  Semi-sweet and super fun to drink, this wine goes down easy.    750 ml bottle for 27.77 plus tax.

Gin Botanical cider

We use the spices that give gin its distinctive flavor- juniper berries, coriander and black pepper along with other herbs and infuse our dry cider with them.  It creates a sour, savory, tongue-tickling combination,  unlike any other cider we’ve made. $12.95/ 22 oz. bottle plus tax.

Herbed Cider

A combination of apple mint, anise hyssop and bee balm spice up this wonderfully refreshing cider.  All herbs are sourced from a community garden in St. Paul with which we’ve had a long relationship.  Fresh, tasty and perfect for a hot summer day!  22 oz. bottle for 15.78 plus tax

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

Maple and Oak cider

Aged in an oak barrel along with toasted French oak chips, then lightly sweetened with 100% organic maple syrup, this cider is a symphony in your mouth.  In 22 oz. bottles for $15.78 plus tax.

Peach wine

Made from (not locally grown, but sourced from the Kiwanis club) peaches and our Edelweiss grapes.  This light, refreshing semisweet wine make a great dessert wine or pairing with fruit or salad.  750 ml. bottle for 27.77  plus tax

Pear cider

Yes, it’s really made from local pears!  In fact, they all came from backyard trees in the metro area, primarily within the city limits of Minneapolis and St. Paul.  It tastes like you think it would, perhaps better.  Full of fresh pear flavor and sparkle and drier than you might expect.  22 oz. bottle for $15.78 plus tax

Piquette blanc

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 cider and white wines.  22 oz. bottle for $15.78 plus tax

Plum wine

–Sold out– 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

Raspberry cider

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?  Well, we picked the aronia berries locally, then bought Wisconsin blueberries and blackcurrants and drenched them with Minnesota honey, then fermented and aged in oak barrels for most of a year.  And. it. is. absolutely. delicious.  Unless you are made of ice, you will love this.  750 ml. bottle for $35.18 plus tax

Semisweet is a fruitier version of our dry cider, made from the same local apples, but lightly sweetened.  Tannic and semisweet in the style of a British cider and not overly carbonated.  Enjoy it with food and friends.  $12.95/ 22 oz. bottle plus tax.

Semisweet mead

A full-flavored honey wine that will get you through a Minnesota winter.  Made from honey purchased from an organic farm in Southern Minnesota, this mead is the bomb.  Sweet enough to buffer the high alcohol, but not too sweet.  Try! 750 ml. bottle for $18.51 plus tax

Rhubarb wine

-Sold out, will return this winter- Rhubarb; fruit of the north, provider of pies and jams, the first taste of spring.  It makes a wine as wonderful as all of these, and we are thankful.  Sweet, fresh, exhilarating!  22 oz. bottle for 27.84 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

Cider Vinegar

All-natural cider vinegar made from the leftovers from our hard cider batches.  Sour, funky and powerful!  Ask for a taste at the bar, and brace yourself!  16 oz. jar for $5.00 tax-free, cuz it’s food!

Hot sauce
