Cider of the Week - Le Père Mahieu "Cuvée du Vaubol"

Our cider of the week is a certified organic, semi-dry, sparkling cider from artisanal producer Le Père Mahieu - Cuvée du Vaubol!

Le Pére Mahieu, located in Normandy, France, is deeply committed creating their ciders in the most natural way possible. Instead of spraying their orchards with pesticides and herbicides, they cultivate the many different species of local insects and birds that keep the apple trees safe from any harmful predators or weather damage. By monitoring the insect and bird population Le Pére Mahieu can take measures to counteract any over-population or under-population that would cause imbalance to the ecosystem.

To maintain the organic nature of their ciders, the ciderie refrains from adding any sulfites or yeasts during fermentation or bottling, preserving the balance of sugars and acidity.
