At its core, cider is wine made from apples. And just like fine wine, the best ciders seek to elevate their fruit without added flavors, colors or anything else. Cider is all about the apple. The flavors and aromas are extremely varied — in that way, apples are very similar to wine grapes. One cider can be light, bright and refreshing and the next deep, dark and tannic.
Exceptional apples, through the magic of fermentation, do exceptional things. For the cidermaker, there is nothing more important than the quality of the apples and the farmer who grows them. Come join a cidermaker and a grower to learn about apples, extreme heterozygosity, saving 100 year old trees and why cider making is really wine making.
