Family Fun: Martinelli’s Apple Cider Tasting Room

Did you know that you can visit Martinelli’s in Watsonville for FREE apple juice samples?

 Last week, I had a great time visiting their company store and Tasting Bar.  It was great to look at the history of Martinelli’s, which is over 150 years young but the most fun was…..
 
tasting their sparkling apple ciders and juices.  So many more than what we can find at our local supermarkets. We tried at least 10 different flavors, including their organic line.
 
Stop by any time. Samples are free and there are always flavors on sale (as much as BOGO Free).

Monday-Friday: Open 9AM – 5PM
