Our Lab

From Farm to Lab to Table.

Our story begins at the craft food and beverage capital in New York’s Finger Lakes region. 

Located on Cornell’s TechFarm in Geneva, The Cider Lab stays true to the fruit through biotechnology and fermentation science with specially selected wine yeasts and a rigorous R&D method that showcases the brilliance of integrating science in the art of cidermaking. From a New York farm to our lab to your table, The Cider Lab’s Empire Blanc, Empire Golden and Empire Cherry Rosé are crisp, sophisticated and award-winning.
