“I am extremely proud of the high quality and purity of our sparkling hard ciders,” said Roman Roth, the vineyards winemaker and partner in the business with co-owners Joey and Mark Wölffer. “They establish a new niche in the ever growing cider market. Our ciders are not made from concentrates and have no artificial flavorings.

The dry rosé has a pale pink hue, slightly sweeter and is distinguished by the extract from grape skins. Both ciders have a perfume of fresh, crisp apples with hints of honeysuckle, strawberry and fine yeast aromas.

Best served chilled, Wölffer No. 139 is available at stores in New York and at the winery tasting room and wine stand in Sagaponack. They can also be purchased at and
