The Tasting Room
taste our difference for yourself
Willow Oaks’ tasting room has beautiful views from every window, board games, cards, and plenty of cozy places to tuck in for a visit with your friends and family. There are seating areas on the deck, patio, and garden for your 4-legged companions to visit with you (if your pups think you’re well behaved enough, and you’re willing to be leashed).
Eric Rice and Lori Leitzel Rice craft their farmhouse style cider from certified organic, American heirloom apples on their 35 acre farm in Middletown, Maryland.
Organic pears, blueberries, black currants and other fruits make tasty additions to Willow Oaks’ ciders. Fabulous fruit, unique terroir and small batch barrel fermentation let the flavors and aroma of the fruit shine through to a crisp, dry finish.
