ABOUT THE CIDER:
El Puente, a collaboration between Potter’s and The Bridge PAI, is a dry, gose style cider made with prickly pear, lime juice, naranjilla, and sea salt.
El Puente’s label art is by Federico Cuatlacuatl who is on The Bridge’s planning committee. Federico is from Puebla, Mexico, grew up undocumented in the US, and is now an assistant professor in the department of art at UVA. Federico is also the founder and director of the Rasquache Artist Residency in Puebla. He founded the artist’s residency in partnership with his brother in their parents’ former home
ABOUT THE BAND:
Lua Project is a cultural pollinator, bridging together musical styles from different continents and different centuries. They write about contemporary themes, about families, and people and work and loss, but draw on the musical traditions of their own families’ past.
The music is inspired by Mexican Son, Appalachian song forms, Jewish and Eastern European tonalities, baroque melodic ideas, and Scotch-Irish narrative storytelling approaches. They strive to create a repertoire that constitutes new traditional music that they will be able to pass down to their children to experience, transform, and pass on.
In accordance with VDH and the CDC guidelines, masks are no longer required at the tasting room for individuals who are fully vaccinated.
