Jonathan and Michele HullWINEMAKER
Jonathan and Michele Hull are the owners of Applewood Winery. Jonathan grew up on the farm and moved to New York City to attend NYU. When he met Michele, his idea of a gourmet meal was takeout. Michele worked at the famous Windows on The World restaurant and was wise in the ways of food and wine. She decided to polish this diamond in the rough and he was a willing pupil. Living in New York City at the time was a great learning experience but Jonathan yearned to return to his agricultural roots.
With his newfound love of wine to inspire him, one day Jonathan hit on the idea of opening a winery on the family farm. And like Eva Gabor, Michele was swept away to the country and the vision became a bucolic reality. The prodigal son returned home and opened the winery with Michele's gracious hand guiding the tasting room. She's been welcoming guests to our tasting room for 15 years now.
"My goal is to make some great wines that are unique to New York and the Hudson Valley that express true life and character," Jonathan says, "If that doesn't work, I'll just hang out under a tree and slurp some Riesling."
Naked Flock, our line of true Hudson Valley Hard Ciders has taken flight. We are proud to be part of the Craft Beverage Movement in the Hudson Valley.
In addition to our Original, Draft, and Pumpkin Ciders we are releasing a Citra-Cider (made with Citra hops) later this spring – a crisp taste with a burst of citrus and a subtle, hoppy bite. A Currant Cider that exhibits a sweet/tart taste of fresh pressed currants, will follow.
Naked Flock is now available in bars, restaurants and shops across New York State.
