I spent Mother’s Day in Saanichton at Sea Cider Farm and Ciderhouse. I drove so my Mom could get the long flight of cider (she got to try every cider!), so she could enjoy her day slightly tipsy. We got seated right away on one of there long wooden tables that were decorated with a local artists metalwork. The high ceiling gave the room an industrial feel and the service was warm and welcoming.
Although it was served at room temperature, the Pomona dessert wine was the standout for me. I’m not going to try and describe it, so I’ll let the bottle do it for you: “Pomona is a concentrated elixir crafted by freezing then slowly fermenting crab apple juice, yielding a dessert cider with apple and confectionary notes.”
My translation: “It’s good.”
Have a good Monday,
