Why "Wine Cocktail"
Because we use our winery license to make this scrumptious product the Federal TTB requires us to mark this as a "Wine Cocktail" due to our infusion of Blood Orange Juice into the Apple Cider. Ciders (under the winery license) can only have Apple Cider juice, not any other juice even in minute quantities. Under a brewery license, this would not be a problem!

VINIFICATION AND BLENDING
Spring Gate ciders are naturally fermented using the raw, unpasteurized juice of fresh-pressed Pennsylvania Apples including our favorite old cultivars. Our unique fermentation, select wine yeasts and aging, stay true to the fruit, authentic flavors and tradition only present in fresh-pressed Eastern ciders.
To this "orchard experience" we then add fresh blood orange juice and that carbonation that many enjoy, or not, for those who love a still wine.
Some of our customers like to add an additional kick into this convenient packaging by adding vodka.
