About Subject to Change This is Not Wine Apple Cider

Subject to Change This is Not Wine Apple Cider is an apple cider fermented on Pinot Noir skins. Stc had just pressed Pinot Noir from Cole Ranch and was feeling the creative juices flowing. They placed those Pinot skins in a fermenter, brought in some apples from Occidental Orchards, pressed them, and put the apple juice in with the Pinot Noir skins. The result was a beautiful pink apple cider which we pressed off of the Pinot skins and finished in 225L neutral French oak barrels. At the end of harvest when the solids settled, they added unfermented rosé of Merlot must from Open Hand Ranch at 25 Brix. They then bottled the back-sweetened cider under q crown cap during fermentation, which finished in the bottle to give it a soft effervescence. As always, bottled unfined, unfiltered with no addition of SO2.

About Subject to Change Winery

Subject to Change makes wines with a strong character that are unique, fresh, and sometimes offbeat. The winery sources grapes exclusively from organic vineyards and makes the wines with no additions or subtractions in the cellar. Organic farming practices and the omission of added sulfur yield high-energy wines with a lot to say.

Subject to Change was founded with a true love for drinking wine as a canvas for enjoying time with loved ones and meeting new fascinating people. In California, a place where wine production has been marked by rules and rigor, there’s a new movement of free-thinking producers with which we’re proudly associated. This movement is characterized by an affinity for experimentation, eschewing conformation to traditional ideals, and a desire to make wine exciting, accessible, and social. Grab a bottle, pop a cork, and don’t think too much if you don’t want to.
