Adam and Dani make Cider, Perry and a bit of apple juice in a small shed  nestled in the side of the Teme Valley a mile upstream from Knighton, Powys.


The fruit is all hand harvested from orchards around the Wye Valley, their current main source is between Hay on Wye and Bredwardine, Herefordshire. Trees are around 60-80 years old and the orchards are blessed with a good variety of apples The orchard is in good condition having spent the last 20 years managed organically for Dunkertons. They have their own orchard, which is very young but starting to bear fruit...


In terms of process - once the fruit is milled they let the pommace stand to macerate in open top containers for 24-48 hours before pressing, then the wild yeasts do the fermenting. They rack the cider off its lees throughout the winter months, slowing the fermentation down enough so that when it is bottled it ferments a little to condition the cider but stops leaving sugars present. No additions fining or filtering and if they are disgorged, it’s done by hand.  Its increasingly being referred to as 'rural method' and is the less interventionist method of producing a similar style of cider to keeved or Normandy-method styles.


Staunton is an orchard blend of Yarlington Mill, Tom Putt and Kingston Black from a beautiful stone walled orchard in the hamlet of Staunton on Arrow, just into Herefordshire about 7 miles from Knighton. When it came to disgorging, instead of topping up with the same cider, they topped up with some bottles of Foxwhelp cider (very sharp) held back from 2018. The acidity lifted the cider nicely. It’s full and juicy with medium dry sweetness.
