Cidery Burned Down in California Wildfires

Ventura County-based Anna’s Cider was completely destroyed during the recent California wildfires. The cidery, run by husband and wife Dominic and Anna O’Reilly, was relatively new; its first apple crush was held October 29, and the company was beginning to get placements in local restaurants.

However, everything changed on December 4 when the company’s building, equipment and product succumbed to the fire. The O’Reillys didn’t have insurance, and now the couple is asking for help via a $100,000 Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign. As of press time, Anna’s Cider had raised $5,645.
