We hunt for good and interesting fruit in both Oregon and Washington. Most of our pears are harvested from a 50 year old pear orchard overlooking Mt. Hood. Some is foraged from 30 ft wild trees found off trail, and still other fruit is acquired through small local producers who are growing something special. The diversity of the fruit itself peeks through every sip of our product, creating blends that are thoughtfully wild.
We do the work others aren’t willing to do. Tend to the orchard. Practice sustainable farming. Help with harvest. Ferment slowly. Hand disgorge. Invest in relationships. It may take extra time, but cultivating something this good usually does.
