Apple Pie Wine from Oliver Winery & Vineyards

** A Geek Daddy received the featured product for free to review**
My son and I were privileged to be able to participate in the Commissioning Ceremony for the U.S. Navy's newest ship, the USS DETROIT.  While naval vessels are often named after cities it is a rare occasion for the commissioning of a ship to actually take place at its namesake city. So it was a special moment to be a part of the ceremony that took place along the Detroit riverfront.  After attending the commissioning and taking a tour of the ship, we headed home with a souvenir ... a nice set of glass tumblers to commemorate the date.

After a long day out and about, I pulled out a bottle of Apple Pie Wine that Oliver Winery & Vineyards had sent me to try out and shared it with my wife while relaxing for a bit.  On a brisk fall evening, this Apple Pie Wine really makes for a refreshing beverage.  The wine isn't cidery tasting but rather has a smooth apple juice taste to it with a nice touch of cinnamon and nutmeg.  Considering the saying "as American as Apple Pie" we found it a fitting drink to raise a toast in our commemorative tumblers to the crew of the USS DETROIT in honor of our Navy's newest ship heading out to sea.

Oliver Apple Pie Wine isn't made from grapes with ingredients added to provide apple flavoring. It is actually made from fresh pressed apples. 100% apple wine with no concentrates! Tart apples mixed with vanilla, cinnamon and nutmeg really does provide the taste of grandma's apple pie just without the fluffy texture of crust to bite into.  At first I was hesitant that this drink was just a gimmick but after tasting I really was impressed.  Oliver Apple Pie Wine really exceeded my expectations and is an enjoyable drink to partake in.

Apple Pie Wine retails for $8 and contains 10% ABV.  It is available for a limited time at select retailers in Connecticut, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan, Missouri, Rhode Island, Texas and  Wisconsin.  Plus it is available at the Oliver Winery Tasting Room or can be purchased online at

Oliver Winery and Vineyards in Bloomington, Indiana has developed a reputation for crafting satisfying wines that capture the flavor of high quality fruits.  Their Apple Pie Wine continues that fine tradition.  Bring a bottle to your holiday gatherings and pour a round of apple pie for your family to enjoy.  Enjoy something out of the ordinary and you won't be disappointed.

Must be 21+ to drink this alcoholic beverage.  Please drink responsibly.  Don't drink and drive!
