As the sun sets on summer, Wölffer has given us a reason to celebrate the season’s final hurrah. The vineyard has made a sparkling entrance into the hard cider market with two new varietals, bidding farewell to the high season and heralding in fall—Wölffer No. 139 Dry White and Wölffer No. 139 Dry Rosé. Both sparkling, hard ciders are made from a selection of apples grown by the Halseys of White Cap Farm in Bridgehampton.
“I am extremely proud of the high quality and purity of our sparkling hard ciders,” says Roman Roth, winemaker and partner. “They establish a new niche in the ever-growing cider market. Our ciders are not made from concentrates and have no artificial flavorings. The finest New York apples from the Halsey farm are fermented and transformed into pure, elegant and the most stylish sparkling ciders you have ever tasted.”
The labels and carriers, which feature collages of seasonal beach memories, reflect the bohemian spirit of a Hamptons summer. The “139” refers to Wölffer’s address—139 Sagg Road, Sagaponack, which is where you can pick of a four-pack of the bubbly, best served chilled.
