Three of our cherished apple forward bottles...
Emanation - 2020 Good Food Award Winner, Herein awaits a dry sparkling cider made in the ancestral method from the juice of both foraged and organically cultivated cider apples. Vermont’s Walden Heights Nursery & Orchard, whence the cultivated fruit was grown, is a magical place where orchardist Todd Parlo shepherds a rich diversity of alpine fruit and nursery stock on a village hillside terraced by hand. The apple trees are sculpturally pruned and allowed to grow to their fullest potential amidst a polyculture of companion plantings. Derived from the Latin emanare, meaning “to flow from” or “to pour forth, or out of, Emanation is a cosmological theory that all material and immaterial existence flows from a Unified Whole or Source Energy. Our rendition of Emanation is delightfully fresh, crisp, and tart, emanating a sessionable innocence. Winner of 2018 Good Food Award
Stillpoint - Herein awaits an aged blend of cider, cultured in an assortment of wood barrels before bottling still, and from which our sparkling cider, Fluxion, arose. This prolonged aging in our fleet of barrels tends to give the cider smooth, buttery, and peppery qualities. We are excited for more people to turn to the wonder, simplicity, and solemnity of still cider. In the center of all life lives an unending stillness that connects back to the Source. Within this Stillpoint lives an immeasurable Light, an unbound potentiality for creation. As we are cast hither and thither by the drama of our lives and dreams, may we remember that no matter how high or low we seem to flow, there will forever be a point of unconditional Love basking in stillness, at the center of All That Is.
Fluxion - 2020 Good Food Award Winner - With faith in flow, we merged multiple vintages of cider aged in an assortment of wood barrels to create our fourth iteration of Fluxion that awaits you. Made in the traditional method, maple syrup was added to kick-start a secondary fermentation in bottle. This cultured blend of cider is the sparkling counterpart to Stillpoint--itself a delightful, still, apple wine. Fluxion is defined as “the act of flowing; the matter that flows.” On the quantum level, matter is composed of vortices of energy in continual spin. As we move as a society into a post-materialist worldview, we offer you Fluxion in acknowledgment of the primordial and continual flow of energy spiralling within and throughout all that is. Enjoy with feasts, merrymaking, and intimate conversations. Dry with refreshing acidity.
