Franklin Hill Vineyards- Following the success of the vineyard, we built our winery in 1981. We decided to build underground, using the comfort of the earth to provide the natural temperature the wines enjoy. Starting at a mere few hundred gallons, we were on our way. Our customers navigated a mile long dirt path that lead to the winery to taste and buy. In the parking area a sign read: We are in the vineyard. “Honk your horn for service.” Offering tastings in our work cloths, customers enjoyed the working winery environment and intimate look into winery life. That same dirt path leads you to our tasting room today. Old world charm meets modern excellence to provide our customers with an amazing experience each time they visit. Nestled in the rolling hills of Eastern Pennsylvania, our winery offers picturesque views and a shopping experience like no other. We produce the best fermented beverage on earth and we love what we do.
|Sir Charles Original – Semi Dry Our flagship cider is brewed in an English style using a blend regionally grown apples. Based on my grandfathers recipe, we brew it with a French champagne yeast to give it a light and refreshing body. The final brew is crisp and refreshing and full of apple flavor, but unlike other ciders it contains just a hint of sweetness with no lingering aftertaste. ||Hail, Cyser! – Sweet This is not for the timid. This cider (err cyser) is blended with PA sourced honey and then lightly hopped to give it a smooth body.

Name for Helen Hauser, the matriarch of our establishment, this cider appropriately intermingles Pennsylvania varieties: Nittany and York with Fuji and just a bit of Rome imparting flavors of pears, peaches and melons with hints of orange zest and ginger.

|Stark Cider- Our debut release, Stark is made from Stayman and Spitzenberg apples, both heirloom American varietals. Its citrusy, fruit-forward notes remind us of a German radler—a shandy of juice and beer—so we named this high-octane cider Stark, German for strong. Off-dry and crisp, enjoy this one as you would a glass of wine. ||Lupulin Lummox- Humulus lupulus is the Latin name for hops, the flowers that give an IPA its grassy flavor. Citra hops, matched with the sweetness of Jonagold and the tartness of Gold Rush apples, yield a mouth-watering cider with subtle sweetness. Big and brassy, yet balanced.||Pinot N'Arlet- Apples were our first love, but when a neighbor offered us batch of Pennsylvania-grown Pinot Noir grapes, we couldn’t say no. This wild yeast fermented cider combines the elegance of these grapes with the ruddy, rustic sweetness of Macoun and Arlet (hence the name) apples. Dry and blush-colored, it’s extremely food-friendly.|

|The Crabby Granny- Strong bottle conditioned dry cyser flavored with Granny Smith and crab apples. Wildflower and clover honey blend with a mix of Frecon cider apples to provide a pleasant tartness and smooth finish.||The Early Man- Early maturing heirloom apples like McIntosh & Gravenstein twist up this strong, bottle conditioned sparkling New England style cider. This baby proudly preserves the last notes of summer. Light, yet full bodied enough for another round!||The Hogshead- Our strongest bottle conditioned sparkling New England style cider flavored with full blushed red Stayman Winesap & classic cider apples. Fortified with brown sugar and raisins, matured in oak.|
|The Apfelwein- Following a blending strategy and recipe handed down to us by our father Henry L. Frecon II and Richard Blair of Blair Vineyards, this style has its roots in Germany and Austria. We blend eating apples from both the sharps and sweets categories, by combining Stayman-Winesap and Granny Smith with Fuji and Golden Delicious. In addition the aromas of this wine come largely from a small percentage of Winter Banana. Our version of this traditional style, is made to be slightly off dry and served still. ||The Hogshead Reserve- This bottle conditioned sparkling New England styled cider (fermented with Brown Sugar and Raisins) is a reserve blend. A much stronger and longer held version of our classic Hogshead cider. Matured on French and American Oak and aged for over 2 years before bottling, this blend balances a healthy amount of Stayman-Winesap with other heirloom late season apples, such as Crab and Winter Banana with new world desert apples like Fuji and Empire. ||The Farmhouse Sour- This bottle conditioned sparkling cider uses antique cider apples. Balancing a healthy combination of bitter sharps and sharps like Crab, Winesap, and York Imperial with just the right amount of sweets like Winter Banana to give this cider a very tart upfront profile with a light astringency. This wilder farmhouse styled fermentation combines Brettanomyces with an addition of Lactobacillus and is aged for over 2 years before blended with a small amount of the Hogshead Reserve and bottled, resulting in a slightly funky and sour taste with just a hint of oak. |

The Mosaic hops add a light citrus and melon character on top of the crisp notes found in the juice blend. The hop character is light and not overpowering. By using a dry hopping technique, only the hop flavor and aromas are infused into the cider. Don't be afraid to try Earth even if you aren't usually a hop head.||Bees- is an off-dry cider sweetened with locally sourced, responsibly harvested honey. The addition of honey adds just a touch of sweetness. The honey comes through in the nose of the cider and continues all the way through to the finish. On top of the white wine like qualities of the cider, the honey adds a light floral character creating depth. If you like off-dry, German white wines you will want to try Bees.|

Benton Ciderworks & Hard Cider Winery- In 2006 we bought a press and began making our own sweet cider. Now we direct every step of the cider making process, from selecting the apples through bottling. The only thing we don't do is grow the apples. We buy our apples from orchards here in Columbia and neighboring counties. We add only sugar, yeast and salicylic acid, and occasionally fresh fruits, such as strawberries. We add no raisins, fruit concentrates, sulfur compounds or other preservatives. These ingredients allow us to produce pure, very smooth hard ciders. Our ciderworks and hard cider winery were the former drying kiln for the Little Lumber Company, which operated in Benton from 1941–2001. Its well insulated walls allow us to control the temperature and humidity for aging cider. The building houses our entire operation, including the pressing and aging rooms and retail store. Colonel Ricketts- Robert B. Ricketts (1839 – 1918), a local historical figure, is the namesake of our hard cider. Born and raised in nearby Orangeville, PA, Ricketts was an officer in the Union Army, leading an artillery battery during the Battle of Gettysburg.

These hops work to complement and elevate cider’s natural characteristics; we dare you to take a sip and resist the urge to hop, skip, and jump with joy!|
|Ginger Kid- Born of an experiment in the early days of Good Intent, Ginger Kid blends our cider with fresh ginger root and the goodness of Beiler Farm’s Pennsylvania maple syrup. While many flavored ciders tend to overwhelm the palate, we balance the ingredients in such a way that the ginger and maple have supporting roles but the deliciousness of fermented apples takes center stage. Enjoy!||Good Charmât- A close relative of its champagne cousin, Good Charmât (pronounced “shar-ma”), is twice-fermented to obtain a natural effervescence. With a delicate mouth feel and notes of vanilla, red berry, and grape flavors, you may compare it to a bottle of fine bubbly.

One glass won’t open your mind to infinite knowledge but a whole bottle just might, so please drink conscientiously! The world can always use a little more Good Charmât!||Rose Farm Orchard- The first of its kind, our “Rose Farm Orchard” was produced through an agreement between Good Intent Cider and the nonprofit Gettysburg Foundation.

Good Intent Cider- It all started one November day in 2010 when Adam innocently asked Jenn what she thought about him attending a week long cider making class at the Cornell Ag Extension. “Sure,” said Jenn, as she thought to herself, “that would be a neat hobby.” Upon his return Adam spoke very excitedly about cider making, insisting that Jenn read up on the subject. Then the packages began to arrive. The first were innocent looking enough…a small tank here, a few hoses there. All of a sudden, a pallet of several hundred bottles arrives. There is talk of production space and LLC, and “hey, mom and dad, you have a spare office!” Jenn and Adam get married. Their reception features a cider made by Adam. Family and friends enjoy the fruits of his labor and Adam is hooked. We are seduced by his enthusiasm, and a family business is born.

Jack’s Hard Cider awaits maturity in state of the art stainless steel tanks, is bottled on-site and rests for a short period to allow for “bottle shock” to wear away.

Arrowhead Wine Cellars- In 1980, Nick and Kathy Mobilia – third generation owners of Mobilia Fruit Farms, began pressing grapes into juice for wineries in North East, Pennsylvania. It wasn’t until 1998 that Arrowhead Wine Cellars was established, after Nick saw the need to offer a product to consumers that he had full control over. With the knowledge and experience of processing grapes it was decided that Mobilia Fruit Farms would go the extra step and begin producing the wine on their own. After all, they were already growing the different varieties of wine grapes and fruits that are now used in their fruit wines. At Arrowhead Wine Cellars they have full control of the process from growing and pressing to the fermenting and bottling. Arrowhead Wine Cellars has been producing internationally recognized award-winning wines, with 32 varieties to choose from. Arrowhead uses the highest quality European, Native and hybrid grapes, most of which are grown on their 250 acre farm.

This summer seasonal is an off-dry cider that is perfect if you’re looking for something “not too sweet” and also allows you to come back for another. ||Barrel Aged Reserve Cider- is a unique blend of traditional cider apples fermented and aged in whiskey and brandy barrels. These varieties provide a bright acidity and natural sugars that blend with an oak finish to yield a complex yet well balanced cider. ||Michaux Mule- Our take on a Moscow Mule, this cider has been steeped with organic ginger that warms on the back end. Fresh lime zest also lends a refreshing citrus that makes it perfect for any weather. We’ve back-sweetened with just a touch of fresh apple cider for a smooth apple character.|

|Kingston Black- The Kingston Black apple is perhaps the most esteemed of all English cider varietals. This single varietal dry cider has earthy notes, soft tannins and a rustic complexity that’s reminiscent of old world ciders. Limited availability each year.|
|Dolgo Crabapple- We utilize crabapple trees in the orchards to help in pollination of fruit every spring. The red fleshed Dolgo Crabapple lends itself to this wildly tart cider that’s rich in color and aroma with subtle tannins.

We look forward to expanding our operation to an onsite tasting room so that you all can come by and visit us one day. Until then, we hope you enjoy our cider at your local pub.

Reid’s Orchard & Winery- farms with the knowledge that we are stewards of the land. The land that we farm today is land that has been farmed by the generations that came before us. The land that we farm today is ours to cultivate and nurture for the time we are here. The land that we farm today will be farmed by those generations who choose to follow us as farmers and vintners. As responsible stewards, we make choices in land and crop management based not only on the needs of this year’s crop but also considering the long-term effects of our decisions on the land and on the environment. Reid's ciders and fruit ciders are made from estate grown fruit. These wines are 100% fruit with no floorings, concentrates or essence. Their goal is to make wine from the fruit of the tree and earth just as they make wine from the fruit of the vine.
Chaddsford Winery began in 1982. We are located in the Brandywine Valley to the southwest of Philadelphia. We are Pennsylvania’s largest and best known winery. Today winemaker Jim Osborn carries on a thirty-year tradition of locally sourced, quality wines. Our main goal in making wine is to provide you with a wine that you enjoy. Every year we produce a wide variety of wines and every year that changes because we pick the best fruit in order to make you the best wine. We have made and you might find on our shelves dry varietals like Chardonnay, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Pinot Noir, many of these nationally acclaimed. Also you might try some of our small lot wines, part of winemaker Jim Osborn’s Artisan series, like our multiple award winning 2012 Blaufränkisch. We also produce our fun and easy to drink varietals like Niagara, Sangria and Spiced Apple.

Knockin Noggin Cidery and Winery- After our first two winery endevors, (Nova Cellars Winery and Fractured Grape wine cellars) we decided we wanted to add a twist. Hard cider was just the twist we were looking for. When deciding on a theme for our new cidery we wanted something very different. Having the science background that I do I thought of Isaac Newton's story of how he discovered gravity. One day when Newton was sitting under an apple tree an apple fell on his head (Noggin!). He then came up with the law of gravitation. From that story we came up with the name Knockin Noggin! What a great way to tie in apples to a cidery! With our theme being tied with science and Sir Isaac Newton we decided to make our labels resemble the periodic table and the names of our ciders to be different laws of science such as gravity and motion. We tried to place the atmosphere of this cidery and winery in a rustic, old environment. The mill was the perfect location we were looking for! Come out to visit us and enjoy our hard ciders and wines and see what you can discover. Who knows what may hit you while you are there!

Deep Roots Hard Cider- I have always loved hard cider since the first time I had Woodchuck. After taking a horticulture class at Cornell and a visit to Cummins Nursery, I loved the idea of making my own Hard Cider. Working with Bill Barton at Bellwether Hard Cider gave me more knowledge of the industry and everything that went along with it... and it was alot! Six years later and numerous small batches of cider and fruit wines, I am now ready to see what other people think of my style of hard cider.

Bushel & Barrel, our cider-pub venue, is a watering hole popular amongst seekers of unique ciders, high quality beverages, and dedicated drink craftsmen. We source all of our apples within a 50 mile radius of the cider pub. Some of the juice we purchase direct from the growers, other times we use an antique press to squeeze the juice from apples. All apples are picked from the tree to ensure fresh and sediment free juice. Our ciders are both still or bubbly, bone dry to mild sweetness, fresh and bright to tart and aged.

Blue Marble Beverages- brings to you a whole new world of flavors. We produce our beverages much like a meadery, a facility that produces honey wine, or Mead.

All of our house products have just a touch of organic agave nectar in the recipe, which helps our fermantations along in many ways, while creating a smoother, satisfying drink that is not too sweet, nor too dry. Blue Marble was founded by a career brewer whose affection for beer has not ceased. While brewing beer commercially, he also continually fermented other sugars at home as a leisure pursuit that became a vocation. Surpassing the trend of sweet and "dessert" Ciders, Meads, or Cysers, our wines are eminently drinkable, sociable, and thoroughly satisfying to any distinguished palette. Distinctly dry and all attitude!
