Bar Takeover: Patois Cider
4-8 pm August 19th
Exploring Wild Virginia
Let’s get down to earth. Literally. Walsh Family Wine is excited to host Patois Cider for their inaugural Bar Takeover, as they help us break out of the wine-centric world we’ve been living in. Remember, wine lovers: fermentation does not belong to grapes alone. Apples, pears, peaches, grains, and so much more can and do develop into intriguing and fun beverages. Patois Cider is doing their part to revitalize the amazing and interesting world of Virginia-grown cider, which has a history as old as the Commonwealth itself.
Patois’ attention toward established fruit orchards and rogue trees in the Virginia terroir gives us a very special and lightly sparkling beverage, as close to nature as they can get. Patois knows that all organisms involved in the life cycle of fruit play a vital role in their product, and by acknowledging and embracing the ever-developing fruit trees, they adapt and improve along with their cider. These are small-batch, intentionally made ciders that tell wonderful stories of the orchards and region in which they are grown.
Join us to explore the land you thought you knew with this fantastic line up by Patois Cider.
