Fall is upon us and it’s time to celebrate the harvest. I wrote an article on Rose Hill Farm in Red Hook for Main Street several months ago and fell in love with the place. It’s time to return, both to the beautiful farm and to its unique and fruit-forward libations. I’m going to get a bottle of Discordia. Rose Hill says, “It’s a blend of 50% bittersweet apples (Harry Masters and Major) and 50% red grapes (Marquette from the Catskills). For this co-ferment we buried the whole grapes in apple pumice and allowed it to macerate for 17 days, then bottled Pet Nat and aged for 3 years before release. Shows caramelized fruit and salty-tannic notes, slowly opening to revewal lush fruit of both the apples and juicy red grapes, and ending as a highly quaffable chilled light red or rosé.” Enjoy a glass or bottle of that in Rose Hill’s lovely taproom, and the weekend is a winner. Cheers!
