Notes: Wildcard is an adventurous cider made from heirloom Gravenstein Apples and wild grapes making it a uniquely Sonoma County experience. Before the omnipresence of vineyards, the Russian River area was known for apples. Gravensteins are on the Slow Food Foundation’s stringent Ark of Taste catalog which supports the preservation of heritage foods unique to particular regions. Gravenstein apples have a long and rich history within Sebastopol in Sonoma County. The apples for Wildcard are dry-farmed and certified Organic (CCOF) at the Hallberg Butterfly Gardens.

Most of the wild grapes are left on the vine as grapes are a food source for the local wildlife. These wild grapes add some unruly acidity, additional tension and texture and of course a lovely pick hue. The Gravenstein cider was aged in the neutral American oak barrels for approximately 7 months before being racked, blended with the wild grape cider and bottled to undergo a second fermentation. There are no added sulfites and as always, everything is unfined and unfiltered. The cider was bottle conditioned completely dry and remains un-disgorged. Please serve well chilled. You can choose to pour it off of the natural sediment in the bottle or simply enjoy it hazy. -Winemaker Notes
