We are not "cider" drinkers; other than the juice variety. When we saw the open sign we decided to pull in (also the "Vin" part helped). We were the only ones in the place and of course, it still being winter, the vineyard was covered in snow and many of the vines tented. Catherine was our "Sommelier" for our visit. She was welcoming, friendly and a wealth of knowledge. We learned that most of their vines/grapes are hybrids because of the long and cold winters. We sampled a couple of wines; the Seyval Blanc-Vidal and also their Riesling. We bought a bottle of the SB-V which we enjoyed much better than the Riesling. The highlight of the visit was learning about Fire cider and we sampled both the Fire Cider & the "fortified" cider. Really liked the fortified (with apple brandy in oak barrels) I found it "similar" to Port; We thought that it would make an excellent digestife. Union Libre is well worth a visit. We look forward to visiting again in late summer early fall.
