Heirloom Apple Tasting 1PM
Of course, you’ve heard of Granny Smith and Red Delicious, but what about Esopus Spitzenburg and Belle de Boskoop? At Albemarle CiderWorks, we cultivate over 250 unique apple varieties, and we want to share them with you!
Join our CEO, in-house apple expert, and studied historian, Charlotte Shelton on a journey through culinary history and the apples that made the cut. While you taste a variety of unique and heritage apples, Charlotte will treat you to the story of each fruit, its origin, development, and how each shines best on the table (and in the bottle).
