Our state’s signature fruit is in season! While we can indeed get apples at the grocery store year-round, the finest, freshest, most delicious bounty comes in the late summer and fall. Old World Libations in Monroe County invites you to celebrate the harvest.
Watch Old World Libations press fresh, unpasteurized apple cider using seven varieties of apples to produce the most flavorful cider possible!

Owned and operated by April and Scott Ernst, they welcome you to watch them press fresh, unpasteurized apple cider using seven varieties of apples to produce the most flavorful cider possible!

Briana Blye, writes: “Beautiful place with a friendly staff. We enjoyed tasting all the wines and meads along with the delicious food. We will definitely visit again when in the area!”
You will experience the sounds and scenic view of Indian Creek, the ground covered with sawdust, and the sweet smell of the fresh-pressed apple juice creating an atmosphere that will put a smile on everyone’s face. The cider demonstrations will be done using older and new equipment. April and Scott tell us that “the kids love to watch the demonstration of the old press. Of course, we do have a newer one which is much faster, but it’s fun to show kids how to press the apples and to taste it as it’s coming out of the presser at its raw form.”
