Alaska Airlines Feature


We had a wonderful visit from Paul Clarke, who writes for Alaska Airlines Magazine, this spring and the article is already out there! If you're flying Alaska Air (or Horizon) this June check it out – or take a look at the digital version. This month's focus is on Washington, and among the high points of the state, there's a great article on the blossoming food movement that's developing in the Wenatchee Valley.


Wenatchee Wine Week March 15-20

We really love the Wenatchee valley. We wouldn't have planted our roots (sorry about the pun) here if we didn't. Cold, snowy winters, beautiful springs, glorious summers, and rich autumns - every season has something to offer. And the fruits and wines in our area appear to love it too, as more and more wines win awards (including our ciders). In celebration of this great region, Wenatchee Wine Country is featuring tasting events and dinners across Wenatchee the week of March 15. It's a great opportunity for some late-winter cheer (though it's feeling like spring already) with good friends and some incredible taste experiences.

As part of this week-long event, Snowdrift Cider Co. will be featured in two of the events:

For more info, or for tickets to the events, please visit Wenatchee Wine Country. We hope to see you there!


New Locations in Washington State

It's been a busy winter so far. While there hasn't been a whole lot of actual snow on the ground, we've been doing our best to spread our own Snowdrift a bit more across Washington. We want to say a special thanks to those of you who have been asking for our ciders in places we just haven't made it to yet. Here's a list of who's new in 2010 so far: Anjou Bakery, Bottleworks, Central Market Mill Creek, Central Market Shoreline, Lone Pine Fruit Stand and more to come...

Snowdrift wins medals!

We just found out that we won two medals at the Great Lakes International Cider & Perry Competition that was held over the weekend of Dec. 12. Our Semi-Dry was awarded the gold medal in the New England style category, and our Dry Cider won bronze in the English style category. While we were already proud of the quality of ciders we've produced this year, we didn't know if they would be competition-winning material. But we thought we'd give it a shot, and see how they stacked up against other ciders, and as you can imagine we were excited when we actually placed, and placed well!

Congratulations as well to Red Barn and Westcott Bay ciders for their awards, helping Washington state look great out there in the cider world.


Snowdrift at Mission Ridge

It's official, Snowdrift Cider is now available at Mission Ridge ski area! Now you can enjoy a glass of our Cliffbreaks Blend after a day of laying tracks under the Bomber Cliffs.

And what great timing too. After I dropped off my first delivery, 16" of snow drifted down onto the mountain that night. I'd say we're off to a great start.
