Only in America is cider called hard cider. In the British Isles it is cider, in France, cidre and in Spain, sidre.

Unique among small Washington wineries, Westcott Bay Orchards produces and bottles crisp, refreshing ciders with a complexity and finish provided by using traditional cider apples grown in our San Juan Island orchard. These are vintage apples with wonderful names like Kingston Black, Yarlington Mill, Dabinett and Sweet Coppin.

Cider making is a blender's art using different apples from the orchard to blend for spiciness and astringency. Westcott Bay ciders are made with 100% fresh pressed apple juice which runs brown with tannin and clears to a brilliant amber-gold as the juice gently ferments and mellows.

Serve our cider slightly chilled with cheese, fruit, seafood and light meals, or enjoy as a social drink with friends. You can purchase our ciders in many Seattle markets, Western Washington markets and locally in the San Juan Islands.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
