Picking and variety

The availability of varieties depends on Mother  Nature.  Normally, our season starts with the Vista Bella and ends with the Golden Delicious.  Each week, new varieties reach maturity and are ready for picking.

new product!

The P’tite Mistelle, our new 2020 product, is an apple mistelle.  

Unlike our still cider, this apple alcohol is not fermented in the traditional way.  It is rather an apple must to which we add neutral alcohol, retaining the natural sugars of the apple.

With its 18% alcohol and its sweet and slightly acidic taste, our mistelle is excellent served cold as a digestif.

Cheers!
