Our first Apera - kind of.
Apera is the term for new world Sherry. We've stretched that definition a bit.
Long Story is a blend of saline, sherry-like cider aged in oak (2017), with young, bright Sauvignon Blanc (2020).
Enjoy it chilled, or over a big ice cube. If you loved our vermouth, you'll like this aperitif too.
What's it like?: Long Story is pretty magical. Buttery, salty oak melds with tropical lychee to create a mind-bending maraschino white-tea profile. It's weighty, low acid and still. Meant to sip and contemplate.
Unlike our vermouth, we recommend treating Long Story like a regular bottle of wine and finishing it within 2-3 days.
