DRY HARD APPLE WITH PINOT GRIGIO is a unique blend of freshly fermented Hard Apple Cider and premium California Pinot Grigio. We start with fresh juice from five types of apples and ferment it in three lots, each with different yeast to add flavor complexity. Then comes the creative touch: we add 15% of our Pinot Grigio and then Frost Ferment the blend to concentrate the fresh apple and wine character and enhance the flavors. If Frost Fermentation doesnt sound familiar, its because we invented this technique to create our Pinot Grigio cider.
With pale straw color & perfect clarity. The candied apple aromas are layered with hints of crisp Pinot Grigio. Significant effervescence hits the palate with candied apple flavors and lime, citrus and Pinot Grigio accents, followed by a soft, lingering finish and a little tannic bite.
Pairings: White Meats, Asia-Themed Pork, Crab and Shrimp

I chose William Tell as our brand name because hes the historical figure known for hitting the bulls eye when he shot an apple off of his young sons head with his bow and arrow. When you take your first sip of William Tell, we hope youll think we hit the bulls eye too. (Paul Scotto, Cider Brother II)
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.
