On Saturday, April 16th, at 7pm deVine Wines will be hosting our first ever Cider House Rules tasting. Craft cider, both Old World and North American, is in the midst of an incredible renaissance. Craft ciders are swiftly transforming into a trendy drink choice du jour, bringing together wine lovers, beer geeks, bubbles fans, and gluten free drinkers alike with products equally flavourful, complex & refreshing.

Made in a similar way to wine and served in the same sort of fashion as beer, cider has something for everyone. So it’s not a big surprise that this fast rising apple-based beverage, in particularly craft cider, is becoming In Thing locally. We’re starting to recommend a lot of ciders as starters in lieu of Bubbles – it has the aromatic complexity similar to wine and a clean cut refreshing taste that works wonders as an aperitif or matching with appetizers. I’d bet its going to be big in the summertime. The next time you want something different to begin an evening, keep cider in the back of your mind.

Join us for this $30 stand-up tasting to find out why cider is the fastest growing category of alcoholic beverage in North America. We will taste through some of our favourite cideries available on the market today employing traditional methods and materials. Producers such as Finnriver, Reverend Nat’s, Cidres Le Brun, Manior du Kinkiz, & J.K.’s offer sophisticated and unique products with crisp flavours, wonderful tartness and complex sugars. Let your palate come of age during the deVine Cider House Rules tasting!
