Wölffer Estate Cider
Sagaponack, NY || wolffercider.com
Perched on a rise overlooking the lush vineyards to the east and the gently rolling Hamptons landscape to the west, Wölffer Estate Vineyard is unquestionably one of the most beautiful and stylish on Long Island. Rivaling European wineries, the newly-renovated Tasting Room houses wall-to-wall views of the vines, a homely seating area, and an expansive outdoor patio - all just above our Cellar!
The Winery is owned by Joey Wölffer and Marc Wölffer, children of founder Christian Wölffer, and along with Winemaker & Partner Roman Roth, this team's innovation/creativity has created a new niche for the winery by the introduction of two hard ciders – Wölffer No. 139 Dry White Cider and the Wölffer No. 139 Dry Rosé Cider.
The state-of-the-art winemaking facility is equipped with massive, computerized stainless-steel tanks, a laboratory, riddling rooms, a bottling line, and a cellar to hold the wines before distribution. In keeping with the European tradition, the barrel rooms are constructed of high-vaulted caves where wines are aged in imported French oak barrels.
Once entering the winery and being warmly greeted by the Tasting Room staff, sample the award-winning Wölffer wines and take a tour of the winery. Or perhaps just relax with a glass of wine or some hard cider and light food fare inside or on the terrace overlooking the meticulously kept, seemingly endless rows of vines in the vineyard.
