THE REVIEW

The hard cider movement is happening. Craft ciders (and ales) are the hottest categories in the beverage industry and are some of the hardest products to keep in stock for their elegance and unique wine-like personalities.

    Crisp and dry, this vintage blend of apple, pear and quince drinks like its label, a wonderful avant-garde kaleidoscope of flavors. "The pungent, heady, dusky perfume of pear, the earthy succulence of apple, and the ethereal suggestion of young pineapple quince" all collide on the palate. (Randall Grahm of Bonny Doon Vineyards and California Syrah pioneer.)
    Perfect for the upcoming autumn weather, Querry is refined and has moderate alcohol content making it a great aperitif. Quite versatile, you can even enjoy it with charcuterie, Asian food, seafood, and poultry.
    By the way, Querry happens to be naturally gluten-free, a wonderful alternative to beer, and a fantastic complement to your wine repertoire. The apples are hand picked from Watsonville California orchards, the pears come from Lake County and the quince from Oregon. A lot of thought, a lot of flavor, this trend is here to stay. Enjoy!Read More »
