ARTISAN MEANS FOLLOWING TIME HONOURED TRADITIONAL METHODS.
We make cider in the traditional champagne style.
Come with us on our cider making journey in the Hunter Valley.
Meet the makers
Peter purchased an old Pear Farm back in 1991 in Wollombi Valley, just south of NSW oldest Wine growing area in the Hunter Valley.
He got into making cider as we wanted to use apples and pears and convinced his partner, Merryl, to purchase some fruit from a grower in Batlow who was a friend of a friend. They still get their fruit from them today.
They made a couple of batches and then accidentally won some medals at the Australian Cider Awards, so we kept going.
It turns out this meticulous artisan process of making cider, the traditional way, suits Peter’s scientific mind and a relentless pursuit of a perfect tasting dry cider.
Today Peter is an active member of Cider Australia, the peak body for the Australian Cider Industry,
