With fall festivities in full swing and a cool crisp to the Michigan air, what could be better than enjoying it at one of the many cider mills in the Metro-Detroit area? How is one to choose with so many options? Parmenter's Northville Cider Mill offers a spin on the typical apples and cider experience.
Parmenter's on-site winery, just steps from the mill, offers a number of delicious hard ciders and fruit wines made from Michigan grown produce to spice up the cider mill experience for grown ups trying to celebrate the harvest season.
Open for the past year, the winery tasting room offers samples of their hard ciders and wines at four for $5. Currently stocking about six varieties of apple wine and hard cider, the tasting room offers something for every taste, including Crimson Dew, a tart cherry hard cider and Blue River, a sweet blueberry variety for those craving an after dinner wine.
Varieties such as the Rockin' Cock Hard Cider offer a lighthearted sense of humor to the tasting room. No room for pretentious tasters here!
Along with their wide variety of hard cider, the winery serves a selection of both red and white wines. The highlight of their menu, Pink Moon, an award winning cherry riesling, will please any wine lover with a bit of a sweet tooth.
The kid friendly portion of the mill offers a traditional doughnut and cider counter along with a play ground for kids and a seating area for savoring fall treats. They have even set up a tasting counter near the cider for those who have kids with them as are not able to spend a more leisurely amount of time in the tasting room.
Open Friday and Saturday, Noon- 10 p.m. and Sunday 10 a.m.- 8 p.m. through the fall season, Parmenter's is a great place to enjoy an afternoon at the tasting bar or sipping a glass of your favorite cider or wine in the outside seating area or even catching a live performance from the wineries acoustic entertainment set.
Check out Parmenter's, take a bottle home to share with friends at a seasonal party or find a new treat for yourself this Halloween!
