Cidre in Brittany is a longstanding part of the cultural heritage in the region with over 600 apple varieties. Life in Brittany has always been closely tied with apple, which is certainly different from the wine regions. Cider is truly a product from the terroir of Brittany, the best weather and soil for apple production. Apple harvest happens in late Summer / early Autumn, after picking the fruit is then sorted, washed, and crushed – the pulp is then pressed and the juice is left to ferment, converting sugars into alcohol. The cidre becomes naturally sparkling and is bottles and left to age in a cellar.
