Cider Is Wine

Delicious… sustainable… authentic… artisan 100% juice not from concentrate ciders, perries and fruit wines… every one offering excellent value for money!

Cider is Wine is asking drinkers – and wine drinkers in particular –  to take a new look at ciders, perries and fruit wines and to put aside bad memories of early youth to discover what are sophisticated, elegant and delicious drinks with a rightful place alongside wines made from grapes.

Cider Is Wine is the quality mark for ciders, perries and fruit wines fermented exclusively from the fruit – not from concentrate – and reflects the growing interest people have in quality and authenticity and the general move to drinking less, but better – very much part of the move to healthier living.

Wine made from grapes must be fermented exclusively from grapes, a requirement that’s embedded in EU law. Yet, in the UK, cider and perry  can be made from just 35% juice, all of which can be from imported concentrate – and the rules around fruit wines are even less stringent: hardly authentic as consumers want to drink the real deal.

Cider Is Wine defines the sector for real, artisan ciders, perries and fruit wines made from the whole fruit, not from concentrate, reflecting where they come from, who produced them, the varietals that made them and the year in which they were harvested.

As well as their 100% not-from-concentrate fruit content, all these ciders and perries are naturally lower in alcohol – indeed, on average about half the alcohol of most grape wines – as well as being gluten free and, in the vast majority of cases, vegetarian and vegan friendly.

Tasting is believing – happy drinking!
