Half-hour walking tours of the orchards will begin at 11 a.m., 12 noon, 1 p.m., 2 p.m., and 3 p.m. Winchester Ciderworks is a local cidery that specializes in the burgeoning new market for gourmet hard ciders. This event consists of a two-part tour of the orchard and cidery followed by a cider tasting.
During the orchard tour, guides will dispense a wealth of information on the planting and growing of fruit trees, temperature sensitivity for blossoms, spraying and pruning and using the latest “green” methodology to protect the trees and promote tree and fruit growth, when and how to harvest, and much more.
Following the tour, participants can enjoy going into Winchester Ciderworks’ wonderful tasting room to sample different hard ciders that are made right on the premises. This year participates will be able to preview Winchester Ciderworks’ new cider. Two years in the making, The Dandy Shandy is made from a blend of Frederick County apples, carefully aged, then blended with lemon juice and honey. Light and refreshing, The Dandy Shandy (6%ABV) will quench your thirst on even summer’s hottest days.
Delicious food options will be available for purchase from various vendors on site as well as live music. Participants are welcome to bring blankets or lawn chairs should they wish to sit outside following the tour and tasting.
