Charles McGonegal is full time cider geek who also happens to have a day job as a petro chemist. He and his wife Melissa founded AEppelTreow Winery in Wisconsin in 2001. Why AEppelTreow? Charles says, "I wanted a name that was a little pretentious and not French"
Charles has a particular fondness for Perry and has what he calls "the country's (US) only Poire collection (meaning perry pear trees)."
He spent years getting permission from the a USDA to plant imported perry pears. "I have what are suppose to be the top three Breton and top three Norman perry pears in a test orchard."
In this chat we find out more about AEppelTreow (pronounce Apple True) and get a bushel of tips on making perry.
The main chat with Charles begins at 7:48 minutes.
The specific chat on Perry begins at 38:20 minutes, with a mini intro by the Talking Pomes. A transcript of this section of the chat on perry making will be transcribed and posted to the Cider Chat Patreon page. Become a patron today and help keep this chat thriving.
