One of the most exciting and rewarding silver linings of the past few years was making Patrick Collins’ acquaintance here at the shop. Patrick and his partner Danielle are a two-person operation with a singular focus on the old trees of Virginia's Shenandoah Valley and thereabouts.
This cider is the central focus of the project. I picked all of the fruit from unsprayed,
abandoned, or seedling trees in predominantly rocky soils at higher elevations. A cuvée of chance and discovery.
