Aaron Burr Cidery, Appinette
Winemaker: Andy Brennan and Polly Giragosian
Country: United States, New York
Appellation: Hudson River Region
Apple variety: Traminette, uncultivated
Story:The most easily accessible and largest production are the wine-ciders, the Appinette (A blend of unsprayed apples and Traminette grapes) and the Elderberry-Apple. These are crowd pleasing, delicious, fruit-forward expressions with historic roots in the textbooks that line Andy and Polly’s farmstead kitchen.
