Eden Specialty Ciders' Eleanor Leger teams up with Barnard-based author and vigneron Deirdre Heekin of La Garagista Farm + Winery for an afternoon of spirited chatter and educational sipping. With bottles in hand, Leger and Heekin will guide taproom visitors through the basics of biodynamic agriculture, punctuating their points with pours of homegrown, wild-fermented wines and ciders. Curated cheeses, cured meats and other preserves will complement the liquid offerings.
