Gravitude Cider



Gravitude pays homage to our local heritage apple, the Gravenstein. Introduced by Russian pioneers in the 1800s, this variety gained Sonoma County national apple growing notoriety in the 1900s. Now endanger of extinction, the ‘Grav’ is honored by the Slow Foods Ark of Taste for it’s delicious and distinct flavor. We’re grateful that local cider is bringing renewed life to this great old apple and you will be too!

Apples: 90% Gravenstein with 10% Jonathan and Rhode Island Greening. 100% organically grown in Sonoma County.

7.0% ABV | 500mL bottles

Tasting Notes:

Sparking and fully dry, this cider is delicate and graceful with lively acidity. Notes of apricot and rose petal dance with refreshing chalky minerality. The Gravenstein’s charismatic acidity is long on the finish but quick to beckon you back for another sip. An embodiment of peak summer love – Gravenstein season!  

Best served at 45 -55F in a white wine glass.
