Cider Press Rules

Cider & Wine Press

Culture By Photo by Williams-Sonoma

With fall nearly upon us, sweatered men across the country are getting pumped for that Sunday afternoon excitement that accompanies the changing of the leaves — visiting nearby orchards with their better half. The Williams-Sonoma Cider & Wine Press ($300) redeems missing the big game takes full advantage of the bounty that Mother Nature and your soul mate place before you.

Simply load the 16-quart wooden barrel with your fruit du jour and ratchet the lever to extract a home made product even Ms. Stewart would be proud of. More importantly, you can use the fresh pressed juice for everything from hot toddies, to brewing beer, to — as the name suggests — making wine. Find a hayloft and a busty farm girl to round out your hoedown shopping list.
