his week’s items are all wet. Three new beverage places are on tap (ha, ha).
Opening first will be The Cork & Tap at 2034 Main St. in Riverstone this Saturday. This will include an area to purchase fine wine, craft beer and accessories and a tasting room to sample the options by the glass.
Owners Mike Dimico and Trisha Maddy have connected with Mike’s family in Italy and plan to bring that hospitality to their store. His family homesteaded in Harrison, and Trisha came to North Idaho as a wilderness guide from West Virginia.
Hours will be 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Thursday and until 10 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays. Wine tastings will be 5-8 p.m. Fridays and noon to 8 p.m. Saturdays.
Summit Cider on Schreiber Way
Three dry and off-dry ciders made from fresh-pressed Pacific Northwest apples and seasonal off-dry ciders from pears and apples will be available at Summit Cider. The tasting room is under construction at Unit 201 at 3884 N. Schreiber Way (adjacent to Coeur d’Alene Cellars Winery).
“All our ciders have less than 25 percent of the sugar found in most ciders and are all natural and gluten-free,” said Davon Sjostrom, owner with Jason Fletcher. A graduate in plant science from the University of Idaho, Sjostrom started making cider five years ago when he became gluten-free. Fletcher graduated from Sonoma State University in environmental science and has been an Idaho resident for 16 years and a cider maker for two.
The tasting room will be open 3-9 p.m. Thursdays through Saturdays, and kegs and growler fills will be available to local businesses. Check Facebook.com/summitcider, and the www.summitcider.com website will be available soon.
