The lovely folks at High Ridge Farm in Montville make their cider entirely from foraged apples, picking from lonely trees in every abandoned farmstead and back yard they can find. This medley of fruit is then pressed by hand, wild fermented, aged in barrels for a year and bottled unfiltered. A true labor of love.
And holy hell is it delicious! "Feet on the Ground" smells like eucalyptus, gardenias, jasmine and mint. The palate is bone dry- with gentle tannins like a white tea and a touch of cedar. Every bit as elegant as a white or orange wine, at a friendly 6.8% abv. Cheers!
