👩🌾 Growing fruit in the high elevation terrior of the west slope in Colorado is a challenge: we are frost fighters and hail protectors. Ensuring our crops will have enough water is a huge part of the process.
💧In our orchards we use micronized sprinklers. This eliminates water runoff, and the slow water absorption increase nutrient delivery to the soil with zero water waste 🙌
🍎 Five generations of fruit growing has taught us to always be hopeful for the future, to keep planting and planning because great things are always around the corner....
🎉 Hoorah for Dabinett, celebrating our second Good Food Award @goodfoodawards
🍎 Our Dabinett single varietal is processed unfiltered. Further maturation is developed in the bottle evoking a deep golden hue and beckoning butterscotch aroma. This complex flavor development leads to fruity sweetness, and rich buttery floral notes. Hinting woody vanilla then building tingling warmth and tannins on the tongue for a slightly dry bittersweet finish.
Style: Heritage | Moderate Carbonated
🛒And YES these ciders are in the Snow Capped Cider Shope NEXT WEEK. DM us your email address to get on our newsletter and waitlist for the club.
📦 Our cider club features our Reserve single varietal ciders, our Specialty ciders and limited, small batch ciders. All of these have been a labor of love, perfected over several years. The flavor is hyper expressive, grown in our rocky mountain terrior....
🏆🏆 Winning a Good Food award is not just a statement for Snow Capped Cider. It really is a statement for high end cider in general. The cider industry is moving slowly towards developing knowledge of the complexities of these cider apples and historical varieties and how much they contribute to the character and flavor profile of high-end cider.
👩🌾We have the advantage of being the growers. We know our Colorado apples and our special terrior work with the seasons' conditions the high elevation and the soils to adjust our growing practices uniquely to the changes that affect each year's harvest.
🌳As a large scale orchard we do not have to source our fruit and truck it to our facility. For a century we have worked in our Rocky Mountain terroir. With each season's conditions, we adjust our growing practices to meet the extreme challenge that high elevation growing presents. The result is unparalleled flavor and robust character.
📰 Now that the word is out, we want you to know our Estate grown ciders will be available to purchase online and our club will also open in August!
