Cider Maker’s Description

White Buffalo is a single variety cider made exclusively of Winesap apples. This American heritage variety dates back to the 18th century and was traditionally used for cider making. The Winesap apples we use are from the White Buffalo farm, one of the oldest organic farms in Colorado. It is named after the white buffalo marking on Mt. Lamborn, an iconic view from our entire North Fork Valley.

Matthew favors dry hard ciders with body and leans towards traditional English styles, and he’s also developed a serious appreciation for hopped ciders and creative flavor infused ciders. Though he prefers sweets in solid forms, he does enjoy semi-sweet to sweet ciders responsibly when the mood strikes. Learn more about our Chief Cider Curator here.
