For Wölffer Estate Vineyard's latest launch, the acclaimed sustainable Sagaponack-based winery turned to ecologically responsible herbal wellness company Mab & Stoke to partner on a refreshing cider infused with herbal extracts. No. 139 Botanical Cider exclusively features locally grown apples handpicked in New York State, complimented by a herbaceous blend of ginger, lemon balm, elderberry, pomegranate, dandelion root, and turmeric.

No. 139 Botanical Cider made its official debut on Friday, January 8 and we caught up with Wölffer Estate Vineyard Co-Owner Joey Wölffer, Christina Mace-Turner, Founder and CEO of Mab & Stoke, and the Wölffer Estate Vineyard team to learn more about the exciting collaboration.

Infusing No. 139 cider with the premium ingredients from Mab & Stoke has helped Wölffer Estate's team of experts achieve the perfect balance for a herbaceous and fruitful smooth taste to the palate. The herbs mingled in the recipe include ginger, lemon balm, elderberry, pomegranate, dandelion root, and turmeric, creating an earthy rose and orange color tone.

Is this the first time Wölffer and Mab & Stoke have joined forces? How did the collaboration come to be?

JW: Yes, this is the first time we've worked together! I've wanted to partner with Christina for some time since I've personally become a fan of Mab & Stoke's wellness offerings, so I'm very excited to see this product come to life. I think that the limited release of Botanical Cider is something that our cider clients will find tremendously appealing. The vibrant flavor has become a favorite of mine. It is the perfect integration of two brands and perfect for those who crave bold flavors.

CMT: I'm thrilled to be partnering with Wölffer for Mab & Stoke's first foray into infused beverages. The iconic vineyard and No. 139 Cider are a staple in the Hamptons and beyond. As a fellow local, female-founded brand, this collaboration was a natural fit. At Mab & Stoke, we want everyone to feel wildly alive by creating herb-based products that can seamlessly be integrated in everyday life. The 139 Cider infused by Mab & Stoke is the revolutionary way to enjoy what you love with an herbaceous boost, and I'm stoked for everyone to try one.

How does No. 139 Botanical Cider differ from other Wölffer ciders?

JW: This is the first time we've infused our classic cider with herbal extracts. This new cider is a unique experience for drinkers to indulge and feel wildly refreshed inside and out.
