The label was designed by Chuck House, based on a free-hand drawing by Randall Grahm, who, while sitting at the table with Chuck, attempted to show him more or less how he was thinking about the label design. The cider is shipped with two variant labelsa white and a black backgroundwith the theoretical outcome of receiving any combination of the two.

Query: What might a blend of apple, pear, and quince taste like naturally fermented (with indigenous yeast)? Result (not surprisingly): The ethereal suggestion of pineapple quince; the pungent, heady, dusky perfume of pear; and the earthy succulence of apple. I never thought I'd see... a pome as lovely as Querry. Crisp in acidity and bone dry, Querry is the perfect accompaniment to, well, essentially everything. It is composed of virtually everything, but most significantly: 58% pear, 33% apple, and 9% quince. Open very carefully, as contents are under some pressure.
Food Pairing Notes
Excellent with charcuterie, Asian food, seafood, and poultryfare as humble as meat pie or as elegant as lobster. Querry pears with everything.
California produces the majority of wine made in the United States. Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Sauvignon Blanc, Zinfandel and Pinot Noir dominate the wine production in California, but many other varietials thrive in the California climate. Many fine wines are produced in California using Mediterranean grapes.
