Our ciders are primarily available in the California, with a handful of accounts in the New York metro area and Portland, OR. Because our ciders take up to two years to ferment and age, they are released at different times of the year. You likely will not find all ciders at the same time, nor at every location. We self-distribute our kegs, as well as throughout  Sonoma County. Elsewhere in California, we are distributed by Lime Ventures (CA), T. Edward Wines (NY/NJ), and PDX Wines. If you’re interested in carrying our ciders or want to know where to find them, please contact us.
