Sip hard cider in Wenatchee Valley

Wine tours can be found all over the West, but how about taking a hard apple cider tour? Cider was colonial America’s alcohol of choice, and it’s enjoying a bit of a renaissance these days. Snowdrift Cider Co., in Washington’s sunny, orchard-thick Wenatchee Valley, grows some 15 different heirloom varieties of French, English, and American cider apples. Every one of them—from hard, tannin-rich Arlington to crisp, bright Calville Blanc d’Hiver—play a part in creating the company’s balanced, complex ciders. On the tour, you’ll have a chance to sample the apples, see the steps in the cidermaking process, get food-and-cider pairing tips, and, of course, sip the ciders.
