Blend of rare, feral English, French, and Old American tannic and heirloom cider apples grown in abandoned Sonoma County cider orchard. A bone-dry, earthy, dense, savory, tannic, contemplative cider more reminiscent of orchard floor than of apples. Hazy, golden hue. Naturally sparkling, undisgorged. Chill lightly. Pour carefully off the lees.

Tips

The "lost orchard" may be among the oldest, largest cider orchards in California. It had been planted in the 1987 by a couple that wanted to make Old World-style ciders, but they abandoned it in 1991 and moved across country. For decades it was completely feral, browsed by wild boar and deer, encased by wild blackberries, scotch broom, and poison oak. Through luck and sleuthing, we were able to gain access to this orchard, and have been harvesting from it since 2011, but it is still very wild.
