We take the slogan “Drink Local” to heart around here. The Monterey Bay area abounds with world-class wineries, craft breweries and cideries. As temperatures begin to drop, pop open a bottle of locally grown and crafted hard cider, and toast to the harvest season. Featured ciders (clockwise beginning on this page) include: Martinelli’s 1868 (Watsonville); Santa Cruz Cider’s Luz del Valle Orchard (Watsonville); Ratel’s Dry Hopped Cider (Monterey); Twisted Roots’ Hard Cider (Carmel Valley); Santa Cruz Scrumpy’s Pomegranate Cider (Felton); Tanuki Cider’s “…after all” (Santa Cruz); Soquel Cider’s Laura’s Orchard (Soquel).
