A Year In The Life Of A Cidery

June: The First Cider House Bottling

While outside the first leaves began to sprout on our freshly planted cider apple trees, inside the month of June marked our very first bottling at the Innovation Cider House!

This first bottling holds Oval Nouveau, a delicious blend of bittersweet and sharp apples inspired by the West Country of England.

Our new cider’s namesake stems from the beautiful French Oak Oval Tons the juice was fermented in here at the Innovation Cider House.
