The Feisty Dog cider is a finalist in the 2017 Good Food Awards competition. Congratulations Pat!
Pat Knittel, with a heavy duty background producing wine in Napa and Sonoma — wanted to come home to Wrangletown — in Humboldt County where she was raised. And she realized that hard cider was her path home (she still makes wine – North Story Wines– but a gal’s got to branch out, right?) So there we were at about 10:30 a.m. tasting up the hard cider which was lovely and dry — pairing meals with hard cider is the next new thing.
One last word of advice (besides don’t start sipping hard cider at 10:30 a.m.) — if you have only tasted those mass produced hard ciders and think they taste like bubbly ultra sweet apple juice with an edge — give Wrangletown a try! You’ll be doing cider pairings instead of wine — a whole new world will open up, and it’s a delicious one.
