At South Hill Cider, the apples come from wild trees, abandoned orchards, and orchards of high quality cider apples to showcase the distinctive terroir of the Finger Lakes. Steve Selin, the cidermaker, apple picker, and community orchardist has been bottling his own cider since 2003. Living four miles south of the Ithaca Commons, Steve and his family collaborated with an adjoining landowner to allow Steve to plow the fallow fields and to plant an organically farmed orchard of cider apples. This land, being so close to Downtown Ithaca, was under intense development pressure, so he helped the landowner to protect his land from subdivision and development with a Conservation Easement. This cider showcases the Golden Russet apple, a native apple to New York, historically prized for its excellent flavor in cider and on the table. It’s off-dry in style with a lively effervescence and notes of crisp peach, raspberry, and beeswax.
