Rootwood Cider is a small craft cider company started by the Koenig family in Manson, WA. Jim & Cheryl Koenig farm more than 50 acres of apples (as well as some cherries) between three orchards. Together, with their three daughters and their husbands, Rootwood Cider produces craft cider using apples primarily from their orchards, which include ten cider-specific varieties. In 2015, the first tasting room was opened in downtown Manson and has continued to be an outlet to provide tasting flights, glass pours, bottle sales, growler fills as well as a selection of charcuterie. The newest addition to Rootwood Cider is the completion of a tasting room at the production facility slated to open Summer 2018.

Drawing on more than 100 years of apple farming traditions in our family, in 2015 we launched a cider brand focused on producing small-batch cider made from fresh pressed apples. With the addition of ten cider-specific apple varieties to our orchard, we've been able to incorporate a wide variety of apples in our cider blends. 

We offer a variety of cured meats and cheeses, sourced from Glondo's Sausage Company in Cle Elum, WA and our popular housemade salsa.

All ages welcome. During the warmer months, well-behaved, leashed dogs are welcome on our patio. 


Whether you're looking for a unique setting for a corporate retreat, or a celebrating a special occasion, we have options for gatherings up to 40 people (weather permitting). We've hosted bridal showers, simple rehearsal dinners, and birthday parties.

We craft our ciders from great cider apples that we grow on our orchard in sunny East Wenatchee, WA. Our incredible region gives our trees the ideal conditions to grow apples packed with the flavors necessary to produce fine ciders. Hot sunny summers and cold snowy winters result in apples that mature with incredible aromatics and delicious flavors. When ripened to perfection, we pick these apples and craft them with the utmost care into fine cider blends, resulting in rich ciders full of delicious complexity.

We love making great ciders!

All of our ciders start with tree ripe fruit that we carefully crush and ferment. Often unsightly and a challenge to eat fresh, the French, English and old American cider apple varieties we grow to make our ciders carry intense aromatic flavors that shine through fermentation and aging. As the cider ages through the cold snowy winter, the bitter tannins that made the fruit so edgy while fresh give way to soft, complex and surprising flavors that linger and evolve on the palate. Our ciders are best served at a cool room temperature. They pair well with a wide range of foods. Our favorites are aged cheeses, fish, pork, and cured meats - see where your creativity leads you.
