A thank you also to d’s Wicked Cider Company, Kennewick, for: gratuitously donating the space and “Cider Hammer” for the tasting; providing a facility tour; and, additional tastings after the event. Of the 8 ciders presented, the Snowdrift Cellars Perry Reserve won the most accolades. Snowdrift Cellars is located in East Wenatchee and the Perry Reserve is made in the “Méthode Champenoise.” Following closely behind the Perry Reserve for most accolades was our host’s Cider Hammer. However, almost every cider had a following. The other ciders were from: Spain; Ireland; Corvallis, Ore.; Spokane and Tieton, Wash.; and, closer to home, Goose Ridge
Chef Amy Davis prepared many small appetizers to accompany the ciders. They received more than just a few raves from the attendees and paired well with the ciders! Thank you, Chef Amy.
All in all, it was a fun event, as many expressed in their comments. In fact, the event actually oversold and had quite a waiting list. So, if you are thinking of attending a future wine society event, keep in mind that if you wait until the last minute to make a reservation, you may not secure a place. Reserve early!
