Nine Pin Cider Releases Cider Sangría

Nine Pin Ciderworks, New York’s first farm cidery, released its new spring seasonal cider, Cider Sangría. Nine Pin’s innovative new style highlights two of New York State’s largest and most important fruits: apples and grapes.

Nine Pin crafts its Cider Sangría using 100% New York apples from Samascott Orchards in Kinderhook, NY and co-ferments it with the NY grape varietals: Traminette, Chancellor, and Concord, all sourced from Walker’s Vineyard in Forestville, NY. The resulting cider is then infused with a touch of orange citrus. Cider Sangría is perfect for relaxing in the evening and to enjoy with some classical acoustic guitar.

“The apple is first and foremost New York’s best and most important fruit. However, the grape is incredibly vital to our agricultural output,” said Alejandro del Peral, co-founder and cidermaker. “Our Cider Sangria celebrates the two harvests perfectly, and its bright, citrus flavor comes right in time for warmer weather!”

“Many do not realize this, but New York State is the country’s third largest wine producer,” said Jim Walker, owner of Walker’s Wine Juice, LLC. “We are excited to be providing Nine Pin Cider with premier New York grape juice to make their new Cider Sangría.”

Cider Sangría is currently available in 12 oz. cans in Nine Pin’s tasting room in Albany as well through retailers throughout New York, Massachusetts, Connecticut and New Jersey. Residents in other states can purchase Cider Sangría through Nine Pin’s online store.
