Cider fans, rejoice! Tomorrow, we’ll be sampling Foggy Ridge Cider from Virginia. About Foggy Ridge: “At Foggy Ridge Cider in the Virginia Blue Ridge Mountains, Cidermaker Diane Flynt grows heirloom apples and makes award winning hard cider. Located near the Blue Ridge Parkway, Foggy Ridge Cider hosts events spring through early winter celebrating apples, local food and music, growing trees and, of course, cider.” Join us Thursday, May 16, between 5:00-7:00 p.m. Let’s sip some fermented apples!
Foggy Ridge First Fruit Cider: “Foggy Ridge’s First Fruit cider blends early season American heirloom apples to create a rich fruity cider with lively acidity to drink, like Thomas Jefferson, on its own or with a meal.”
Foggy Ridge Serious Cider: “Serious Cider mixes traditional English cider apples like Tremlett’s Bitter and Dabinett with tart American favorites like Ashmead’s Kernel and Roxbury Russet. This crisp light food friendly cider is a refreshing aperitif paired with cheesy nibbles.”
Foggy Ridge Sweet Stayman Cider: “The famous Virgnia Stayman apples ripen late in mountain orchards but are worth the wait. Our Sweet Stayman Cider blends the original Stayman apple with heirloom varieties like Grimes Golden and Cox’s Orange Pippin to create a lightly sweet cider to sip on its own or with spicy food.”
Foggy Ridge Handmade Cider: “Our latest hard cider is Foggy Ridge Handmade, bottled in baby champagne bottles and for sale only at restaurants and retailers. This crisp cider made from Newtown Pippin apples has beautiful soft tannins and a delicate apple flavor with light pear notes.”
