  • After riding our motorcyles all day, we stopped at Indigeny Reserve at 5:05 pm on a Thursday since their website said they were open until 7. There was a note on the door that said that the facility w...  read more »
  • We never heard of this brand of cider but wanted to learn about the process involved in making it. We were lucky enough to have the owner himself giving the tour. He was incredibly knowledgeable and k...  read more »
  • Great place - we've been back twice. Nice hiking path, beautiful views. The cider is great, the tour informative, and we loved the moonshine, too! 
  • We found the tour very interesting & informative. The owner & staff are friendly. We enjoy the ciders & are anxiously awaiting the release of their flavored vodkas. The gift shop has unique items from local artisans & the organic apples are delicious.
  • When I had to choose one star it called that "Hated It" . This does not describe my feeling. I would have given no stars and not used the word hate if that were a choice in writing my review. I would have said I was extremely disappointed because I believed in my experience of visiting the grounds , buying organic apples directly , enjoying the tasting bar and reading as much online as I could find on the website. Had there been full disclosure and transparency on the website regarding the ingredients of the products made and sold by Indigeny , I would have absorbed all that I could. I hope that is available soon and I have requested that be done directly with one of the Watson family members. That would be full disclosure and transparency , which I consider very important in my life and look for that from the people in my life and products I buy. My complaint is that when I went with faith and trust to buy my first 6 pack of "Indigeny Reserve " as a rare treat for myself in terms of drinking alcohol , I was 2/3 through the bottle when I looked at the ingredient list . I was shocked to find out that one 12 ounce bottle has 31 grams of sugar , that the product has Dexrtose, caramel color and preservatives in it . I could not sleep last night I was so hopped up on sugar. I am disappointed because I thought Indigeny was similar in the degree of integrity that the also local Diestal Farms has well established . What I think now is that the Indigeny Reserve product is cheaply made , a money maker but worst of all it is part of an industry that is contributing to the out of control use of sugar that is affecting the masses . Sure , it is fine for them to make and sell what they do , it's just that I understand now that though they have an organic hard apple cider product that they make and sell on the grounds , the product in the store is closer to a soda product and those distinctions are not made on the website, which I hope they will be soon . I believe now that they would never make the money they want / need to make by just producing an organic , no sugar added hard cider and an organic hard liquor. The money is in the mas produced for the masses who have yet to stop their own intake of cheap sugary drinks . That , besides the fact that I felt very bad after drinking part of a bottle of the 12 oz Indigeny reserve last night for the first time , is why I would give no stars with an Extremely Disappointed designation if I could have . Still it was important enough for me to register my complaint and therefore I chose the one start and the distasteful "Hated It" . Buyer beware, business come clean .
  • A must see in Tuolumne County! Located within a peaceful valley surrounded by orchards and mature oak trees, Indigeny offers a beautiful setting to enjoy freshly made organic hard ciders and unique brandy. Friendly staff, with a passion for nature, provide tours and tastings of a truly amazing cider. We will definitely return to Indigeny Reserve!
  • Fantastic place. Great brews.
  • Love it!
