Art of the vine… passion of the heart… delight of the senses… La garagista wines continue to delight us and our friends every time we are blessed with them.
We are jubilant with the latest La garagist vin to grace our shelves – Ci Confonde. This sparkling gem will only be around for a short time, so get yours while you can!
From the bottle:
(Chi•con•fond•ay) It confounds us. Surprises. Dumbfounds. Slays. Bedazzles. Staggers. Shakes. We’re feeling a bit bedazzled by petillant naturel, an old-style first fermentation in bottle. Our Ci Confonde White is bottles shortly after harvest, and left to finish its frothy alchemy under the cap, creating a fine bead of pearly effervescence. Hand-harvested and unfiltered, this alpine sparkling hails from our vineyards in the northern climate of Vermont.
Get your craft cider sampling boots on and get over to the Beverage Warehouse for a delicious, refreshing, VT made event!
From 3:30-6:30p on Friday, May 6th, you can taste a slew of Shacksbury Cider with Kim, the general manager and score some of their new cans!
For sampling will be the ever popular Shacksbury line in addition to Millrace, a DRAFT-ONLY cider.
We are delighted to be hosting Shackbury for their can kickoff – we’ll be releasing and sampling their craveable semi-dri cans!
These ciders are made from Lost Apples of the Champlain Valley. By Lost Apples, we mean apples that homesteaders planted for homemade hard cider over 100+ years ago. Colin, David, and the Shacksbury Team, with the help of Michael Lee from Twig Farm and Brad Koehler from Windfall Orchard, forage through cow pastures, meadows, and forests of Vermont to harvest, then press and ferment these apples into a one-of-a-kind cider. If we love the cider from a particular tree, we graft it back into production.
Extra dry, green apple, fresh cut grass, cheese, soft tannins and minerality
