First, join us for an exclusive tour and guided tasting at Urban Orchard Cider Co. Urban Orchard is a family-owned and -operated cider production company located in downtown Asheville.
Using only locally-sourced apples from Hendersonville, Urban Orchard hard ciders are aged from 8-12 months to create blends with a full maturation of flavors. Head of Production, Greg Hill, has designed an exclusive, private tour for us that includes details of the fermentation, aging, and blending processes. Afterwards, you’ll enjoy a guided tasting of three 5-ounce ciders, specially selected for you by Greg, and then sample a fourth pour of your choice from the menu.
Your day continues as you take a short walk or ride to a one-of-a-kind culinary experience at Cultura. Located next door to the Funkatorium, this latest addition to the Wicked Weed family features new-agrarian cuisine, sour beer on draft, a “robust” selection of natural wines, and hand-crafted cocktails in a setting that practically begs you to linger. So, don’t be late because we’ll be seated promptly at 4:45pm, to allow plenty of time to savor Cultura’s cuisine as our evening will come to an end -all too soon- when the staff prepares to open for regular reservations at 6:45pm. Chefs Sessoms and Hester will offer a 4-course meal, focusing on seasonal, locally-sourced ingredients, with your choice of entrée and small plate from a specially-created pre-fixed menu, two shared salads (chefs’ choice), and a dessert.
