In the fall of 2021, Jason co-fermented organic apples and pears sourced from Filigreen Farm in Mendocino, CA. The resulting cider spent the winter and spring aging in neutral French oak barrels. In June of 2022, he blended in organic Picpoul Blanc (about 10% of the final blend) from Windmill Vineyards in the Dunnigan Hills AVA.

The high-acid Picpoul Blanc, which translates to “lip stinger,” is found throughout Southern France and Catalonia. It’s one of six white grapes used to produce Châteauneuf du Pape and is responsible for the brightly metallic Picpoul de Pinet (Languedoc-Roussillon). For a bit of carbonation, Jason added a small amount of freshly pressed apple juice at bottling. Unfined, unfiltered, no SO2 added. 147 cases produced. 9% alcohol.
