Our Ciders

Our cider is a convergence of apple and pear trees, land, water, and growers; of history, heritage, modern sensibility, and sustainability. Our hard cider’s lifecycle begins with whole ingredients, fruits and herbs. These whole fruits are pressed and fermented through various methods to create both easy-to-enjoy and more hardy heritage hard ciders and berries. Our vision is to create a tasty hard cider while also engaging with our community and doing as much good as we can. A portion of the production from select ciders will be dedicated to local and equity causes. Industry diversity and community support are key tenants in the Convergence model.

About

The Taproom

Our cidery is located in Decorah, Iowa, at the convergence of the Plains and the Driftless regions, home to a diversity of hardy apple varieties and small local farms dedicated to responsible growing practices, the preservation of local heritage, and service to the community. It is the combination of these elements and intentions that brings Convergence Cider Works into being.

The Team

Natalie & Chris Naber: Natalie grew up in Winterset, Iowa, just north of where the “Delicious” apple was created. Growing up, she remembers eating apples off of friends’ trees, taking trips to the local orchards for pressing days, making things with the crabapples that grew in her yard, or just eating spitters straight from the tree or ground.  Before moving back to Iowa this year, Natalie lived in Sonoma County for 20 years. She began work in manufacturing 15 years ago and decided to move specifically into beverage manufacturing 5 years ago. She enjoyed time with kombucha and hard cider companies and learned that Sonoma County/North SF Bay has many inspirational makers who champion stewardship and preservation in their relationships. Chris has been going up to Apple Hill, one of California's premier apple growing region since he was a kid, and as a family we have continued to pass along the the tradition and love of apples and orchards. Chris has been engaged as a community partner in Sonoma County as the Board President of a local non-profit education foundation for the past 6 years. Chris also holds extensive experience in logistics coordination and account management.
