The Snowdrift orchard is set against a backdrop of basalt cliffs in sunny East Wenatchee in Washington State. They've been growing apples there for over 30 years, and recently added several cider varieties such as Dabinett, Foxwhelp, Golden Russet, Brown's, Wickson Crab to the mix.
Cidermakers Lars and Tim's love of hard cider began around 2003. Between discovering a new world of 'lost' apple varieties and some coaching from Peter Mitchell, one of the United Kingdom's premier cidermakers, they found their way into the world of artisan cider.
Meet Tim at Wassail and try his 2015 bottlings of Cornice (barrel-aged), Perry (made with central Washington pears), and Red Crab (made with red-fleshed apples).
All are welcome to this pay-as-you-go event.
Oh, and watching this video of their orchard and process inspires us.
