  • Alcohol %
  • pH 3.65
A dry full-bodied dark wine made from whole Sambucus Nigra elderberries, cold macerated and fermented on the skins, then aged "sur lie" in French oak barrels for 6 months. Known as the Englishman's Grape, Elderberries grow very well in cooler growing regions where wine grapes can not thrive, and give colder areas of the world a wonderful "Super Fruit" rich in anthocyanin, acid and tannin to make a beautiful native wine.


Reminiscent of a Cabernet. This wine will age well in a cool cellar for up to 5 years or can be enjoyed today! Serve in the 55-70°F range.

Brand for Wild Elder Wine and Cider Co.
Traditional cider and wine, handcrafted one barrel at a time.

We specialize in making Elderberry wine that is fermented on the skins and is barrel aged in French oak. Known as the "Englishman's Grape," the Elderberry is similar to its cousin the grape in flavor, acid, and tannin. Historically, Elderberry's use as a superfood dates back to Hippocrates.

Our cider is sourced locally from Emerald Orchard and Cider Mill in the beautiful Lehigh River Valley just a few miles downriver from the winery. Emerald is a small family orchard that was planted in the 1980’s by cider master Carl Fritchey. We turn Carl’s handiwork into a dry aromatic sparkling cider made in the traditional method of Champagne. Our Elder Cider is made in the same way, just slowly cold fermented with whole Sambucus Nigra elderberries.
