Our philosophy remains consistent… Locally sourced orchards, Long-term relationships both inside and out of the company, and attention to detail create a quality product that can’t help but make you smile. It’s true, she IS so bad, it’s good. 

Although Bad Granny’s heritage lies in the beautiful orchards of Washington State, her creative genesis found its roots beside her sister product, the Karma Vineyards Methode Champenoise Sparkling Wine. Owners Julie and Bret Pittsinger opened Karma in the fall of 2007, creating the first traditional style champagne in the region. As the brand grew to be one of the favored bubblies the State of Washington, Bret saw an opportunity to partner with his long-term relationships of growers in the Valley that he’s cultivated over several decades. The chemistry between the quality of fruit and the knowledge of the traditional French champagne method, created a unique Hard Cider …and BAD GRANNY was born!

We’ve been growing the best apples in the world on our small family farm in Washington state for over 40 years. Generations have been raised under the shade of our family’s orchard, big hands and little hands working together come harvest time. Young and old selling apples out of the back of our old pickup truck. The family dog running along rows of trees heavy with fruit. And now crisp, refreshing hard cider handcrafted in our historic apple packing shed using fresh-pressed local apples. 

Our family is proud to continue its rich apple tradition with Washington Gold Cider.  The Ciderhouse at Lake Chelan Winery on Saturdays from noon till closing for the most authentic tasting experience you can get, right where the magic happens!

Our production facility sits in the heart of Washington's apple country with over 170,000 acres of orchards surrounding us. We are able to make our cider locally and with the best apples in the world. What truly makes us unique is the combination of Washington apples and a British cider maker.  With over 30 years of experience enjoying and making cider and growing up where cider originated, our cider maker was inspired by north central Washington apples to create a modern, refreshing cider that is popular today in British pubs. - Manchester Road Cider

This cider is light and refreshing with full apple flavor. The recipe was developed over the last decade reminiscent of a modern, British draft, style cider. 42 tastes great with all types of food and is especially delicious on a warm, summer afternoon. 42 - a smooth, medium sweet, sparkling cider.  

Manchester Road is currently available in 22 oz bottles, 1/2 bbl kegs and 1/6 bbl kegs at select local NCW restaurants and retail stores.

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.


Winter Tasting Room Hours: by appointment through February. To schedule a tasting, call (509) 630-3507, or email below.

You can taste Snowdrift Cider at Wenatchee Chamber Tasting Room downtown Wenatchee 7 days a week.  

Malaga Springs Winery

It was a beautiful blue day with a landscape of changing fiery colors all over the hills.  After a pretty scenic drive along the winding orchard-lined country road, we found the winery perched at the base of the basalt cliffs in Malaga, Wa.  What I discovered is Al and Kathy Mathews built their new sustainable tasting room themselves, complete with an expansive patio and an upstairs room with fireplace and bar for future small events.  They used a mix of local wood and rusted copper to achieve a nautural look that blends with the nature around them.  I also discovered Al makes and sells his own beatiful pottery pieces and makes their own Super Natural Honey produced from the honeybees that live on the winery.   Malaga Springs Winery is open during the Winter months on weekends (Friday-Sunday), but will be closed from January 1 to February 14th.
