Napoleone Cider is pleased to announce the details of our inaugural Cider Festival.
“Get your Pomme on!” at the Cider Festival at the Napoleone Cider Orchard Bar – 45 minutes from Melbourne CBD.
The Orchard Bar is hosting a day long garden party for Australian Cider Day, a national event championing craft cider produced with 100% Australian grown fruit.
From 10am until last light on Saturday the 13th of March (peak harvest season) the team will be celebrating with food trucks, live music and specialty ciders.
Napoleone’s cider team have crafted a pear cider for the festival – 100% Beurre Boscs, natural fermentation & aged in American oak – affectionately named Ap-pear-lachian, after the mountain range famous for American oak forests.
The team have secured a limited number of highly coveted Johnny Ripe Apple Pies (if you know, you know) from the Mornington Peninsula, which will be available from 10am and from 12pm they’ll be joined by food truck hero Jenny Chen of Ghost Kitchen, serving up Taiwanese street food from 12- late. Think outrageously delicious pork belly bao.
A French Gypsy Jazz band will be letting loose from 12 until 3pm and Palm Tree Paddy from Ports of Paradise fame will be spinning tunes of exotica, bossa nova and calypso from 4 until 7pm.
A door prize is on offer for attendees too. The crew will host the winner and up to ten people for an exclusive party in the Orchard. Valued at $500.
Free entry, customers are encouraged to register their interest via Eventbrite
