Report on 24 hours with Ross on Wye: # with Crafty Nectar
Ross on Wye Cider and Perry is an orchard-based cider maker from Herefordshire. Approximately 95% of their cider and perry comes from the cider apples and perry pears grown in unsprayed orchards on their farm. The remainder is made up of fruit hand-picked and brought to them by some of their friends - such as the renowned very rare variety of perry pear called Flakey Bark. The only mature trees in existence grow on May hill, and are maintained and collected for them by their friend Rob.
Ross on Wye are the 'spontaneous fermentation' experts, producing 'Natural Ciders' from wild yeast fermentation with no additives, just a lot of craft, combining both tradition and innovation.
They have an amazing terroir, a collection of some of the rarest apple and perry pear varieties they preserve in on their farm facing down to the River Wye. And they have a story to tell, about the new cider revolution that is beginning to bubble up around the world.
