Made with Organic Herbs
This elegant artisanal wine was developed in collaboration with maître liquoriste Deirdre Heekin. Using our Northern winter cold to concentrate fresh-pressed cider from Vermont apples, we fermented the concentrate to make a pure dry wine infused with a special blend of organic Vermont-grown herbs. A refreshing, aromatic wine, Orleans has delicate apple flavor and white floral, honey and anise notes. Serve chilled as-is, over ice with a twist of lime or use it in cocktails.
