Let’s all be friends.

Now wine lovers and cider superfans don’t have to choose. This cider/ wine hybrid is a collaboration project between Florez Wine and Tanuki Cider. This blend of 30% Merlot grapes and 70% Pippins apples from the Santa Cruz Mountains was fermented in perfect harmony. Regular pump overs were used to keep the juice happy and the blend rested on its lees in stainless steel for two months prior to being racked over to neutral French oak barrels for 6 months. Just a little bit of sugar was added in 2022 to add a bit of sparkle, and then it was hand bottled under a crown cap.
  • Florèz Wines was founded by James Jelks in 2017, and are all about prioritizing old world technique and sensibility in their wines.
  • After completing his degree in Oenology at UC Davis, James studied winemaking all over the world for 10 years before starting his own project in Santa Cruz.
  • Pippin apples are thought to be one of America’s oldest apple varieties, and are believed to have originated in New York during the early 18th Century.
