Sierra Cider

apple orchard & cidery
Here at Sierra Cider’s farm & cidery we grow our own cider type apples including traditional English bittersweets, early American russets and lots of crab apples.
We blend them to balance the sharp, sweet and dry bitter tastes into complex and delicious ciders.
Our cidery and farm are located in the historic California foothills near the front gate to Yosemite National Park. Here the warm summers and cool autumn nights enrich the apple sugars and flavors to provide a premium juice to produce our fine ciders. We hope you will agree and enjoy our ciders with family and friends.

    Gold Medal & Best in Class

    Dry Summer Blend

    This cider won a Best of Class award in the Heritage category at the 2017 Great Lakes International Cider and Perry Competition (GLINTCAP). GLINTCAP is the world's largest cider tasting competition taking in cider entries from Europe, Britain, Australia and other world-renowned cider producers. A Gold Metal was also given for this award winning cider.

    We are very proud of our Dry Summer Blend, and from the comments of our customers who have tried it. This lightly carbonated semi-dry cider has a nice balance of tannin and acid from cider type apples, blending nicely with the low residual sugars making it a refreshingly semi-dry cider with no lingering sweet aftertaste. The blend of over a dozen types of our estate grown apples gives it body and mouth feel as attested by our customers. We hope you will agree.

    Silver Medal Winner

    Farmhouse Style

    Another GLINTCAP award winner! This cider won a Silver Medal award in the Heritage category at the 2017 Great Lakes International Cider and Perry Competition.

    This cider blend is low in carbonation, residual sugar and is on the dryer side so you can focus on the different types of English bittersweets and crabapple varieties we grow. The clean flavor is characteristic of the early days of cider making.

    Estate Cider

    Early Harvest

    This style is a favorite with a wonderful fresh apple aroma. It is smooth, refreshing and pares well with your favorite meal.

    Just a hint of sweetness, but bold in flavor with a surprising note of honey and apple blossom aroma makes this blend from our estate grown apples a favorite of many. The sweetness counters the dryness and the carbonation adds to mouth feel.
