The New Zealand Cider Festival is back for its second year in New Zealand’s Cider capital, Nelson. It will be held on 4 November at Founders Heritage Park, to coincide with the NZ Cider Awards (held on the 3rd). Described by National Geographic as “heaven for Cider seekers”, Nelson produces 60% of the country’s Cider due to its high concentration of cideries.
Along the Coal River on the Tasmanian east coast, Lost Pippin is growing desert apples and a little bit of wild yeast. A cool climate helps grow great apples. So I’m very much looking forward to getting into this, the Wild Tasmanian Apple Cider.
Today Borrodell is a winery in the central New South Wales town of Orange but it didn’t start out like that. The vineyard originally started as an orchard. But today some of those apple trees are getting a bit more attention. Inducing The Comrade Cider.
