Cider Chats: Wild apples

  • Wassail 162 Orchard Street New York, NY, 10002 United States

Those who first glean apples from the wild, year after year, both from long-abandoned orchard trees or truly wild seedling trees, begin to discover individual and social characteristics that are unique to wild trees. The resiliency of these trees offers wisdom that may reshape the monocultural approach to conventional orchard management, and their fruit offers diversity needed for the cider industry.

Join us as Andy Brennan and Polly Giragosian of Aaron Burr Cidery and Steve Selin of South Hill Cider share what they have learned from gleaning wild apples.

This chat will be moderated by James Beard Award winning author Rowan Jacobsen who penned the lovely volume "Apples of Uncommon Character".

Talk includes taste of ciders. Bottles and Rowan's book will be available for purchase in our bottle shop.
