#ciderchat with Tilted Shed Ciderworks


6/5/2014  6pm PST / 9pm EST

Ellen Cavalli and Scott Heath, are the husband and wife team behind Tilted Shed Ciderworks – a small cidery in the center of wine country, Sanoma County. Well actually Sanoma County was once a leader in apple farming and Tilted Shed aims to bring back that almost forgotten tradition.



Experimenting in New Mexico from 2007 to 2011, Scott Heath, the mad scientist/cider maker honed his cider making skills and brought his partner back to Northern California and opened Tilted Shed, producing small batch ciders the traditional way – from pressing to blending by hand.

Ellen, the master behind the scenes takes care of sales, marketing and distribution and will be joining us this week on #ciderchat along with Scott Heath, talking apples, cider making and the future of California cider.
