Edible Magazine Celebrates Ten66

Orchard Hill's Ten66 makes the pages of Edible Hudson Valley Whisk: Spring 2015.

"Besides cider and brandy, the French tradition also includes another more seldom consumed delicacy: pommeau. Made from brandy mixed with apple juice, pommeau offers an experience closer to fortified wine like port. While celebrated in northwestern France, it’s largely ignored in the rest of the country and virtually unknown on these shores. That looks to change soon; Orchard Hill Cider Mill, based in New Hampton, is producing the first local interpretation of pommeau. If its quality is any indication, the word (and drink) will be on everyone’s lips in the near future."

Orchard Hill Hard Cider leads the Hudson Valley lineup.

The Scranton, Pennsylvania, chapter of the American Wine Society recently invited Hudson Valley Wine Country to make a presentation of its wines to their Board of Directors and members. Orchard Hill Hard Cider made an impression!

"All wines tasted were Hudson River Region wines, and were estate fruit. The Orchard Hill cider was a lovely surprise with a dry sparkling apple cider with the yeast still in the bottle. It showed spectacularly."
- Carlo DeVito, author of East Coast Wineries: A Complete Guide from Maine to Virginia
