Tilted Shed Ciderworks
Tilted Shed Ciderworks started in Sonoma County in 2011 on a mission to elevate the apple to greatness and show what beauty comes from our local orchards. Since then, we’ve been focusing on ciders, coferments, and distillation projects, all sourced from our foodshed—supporting local organic and sustainable apple farmers and gleaning from the bounty of fruit that nature gives us here in west county. We press everything in season and practice low-intervention production, specializing in all wild fermentations, no fining or filtering, and very minimal sulfites to allow the true expression of the fruit. At our Sebastopol farm, we also grow over 100 apples and pears, which form the basis of our estate cider called Farm Reserve. In addition, we have an experimental apple seedling nursery to foster biodiversity and hopefully result in new cider varieties.
The first thing you notice about Tilted Shed Ciderworks is the namesake tilted shed that houses the cidery. The shed is tilted at a jaunty angle, giving it a sense of playful whimsy. But don’t be fooled by its appearance – the cider produced here is deadly serious. Apples are milled and pressed into cider inside the shed using minimal methods. The result is a rich, complex beverage with a distinct apple flavor. The cider is then aged in oak barrels, resulting in a deep amber color and rich flavor. So whether you’re a casual cider drinker or a hardened connoisseur, Tilted Shed Ciderworks will have something to suit your taste. So please visit them soon and see what all the fuss is about.
