Hard pear ciders have been enjoyed by connoisseurs for hundreds of years with documented production as far back as the early Roman Empire. Great Shoals Winery has brought this tradition to Maryland in the form of our cider-style Bosc & Bartlett Hard Pear.
Through our partnership with Heyser Farm, we’ve blended and pressed the sweetest bosc and bartlett pears from regional orchards in Maryland and Pennsylvania to make an 8% alcohol by volume sparkling pear wine.
Made in a classical European style, Bosc & Bartlett Hard Pear is a dry, well-balanced, and naturally sparkling wine that features the delicate flavors of ripe bosc and bartlett pears.

Tried as a taster at the local shop. Pours a cloudy light straw color. There are aromas of pear and that crisp pear note is on the nose and palate in equal amounts. It’s not bad, and I like pears a lot, but it was a touch watery and didn’t really do a lot for me.
