Additional Notes:  The 3 in the Tree by Hoity Toity Cellars is a unique blend of three fruits – apple, pear and grape. The blend is extremely clean, with little to no notes of fermentation. Incredibly refreshing to consume. Grape elements are more like a juice than a wine.  Apple is sweet, but not sugary. Very light carbonation. Overall, quite unique with almost no alcohol elements.
