Little Pomona Teams Up With Burum Collective To Share 2021 Cider Nouveau
Following on from last year’s inaugural cider nouveau – the first cider of the season – this year's cider, Disco Nouveau 2021, will be released on Saturday 20 November at a special Open Day to be held at Little Pomona's cidery.
Inspired by the enthusiasm of our friends over in Beaujolais, who always release their first wines from that year's harvest on the third Thursday in November, we kicked off the Cider Nouveau movement in 2020. Ciders appeared from us and other producers, including near neighbours, Halfpenny Green.
This year Little Pomona is teaming up with friends the Burum Collective, the game-changing network and platform seeking to improve the drinks industry through promoting inclusivity, accessibility and education.
Burum co-founder Helen Anne Smith has been part of the core harvest crew at Little Pomona this year. Fellow Burum co-founder Rachel Hendry will be hosting a Beaujolais & Friends tasting at Hard Lines in Cardiff, where Disco Nouveau will join its grape counterparts.
"We are so excited to be involved with this year's Disco Nouveau!" says Helen. "It's been wonderful to work alongside Little Pomona on such a special project, especially knowing that more cider makers are taking part this year, and we're really looking forward to trying everyone's releases."
As well as the ever-fragrant Discovery apple, this year's cider includes a component of the pink-fleshed apple, Rosette, plus a splash of perry pears and Egremont Russet.
All are welcome at the Open Day on Saturday 20 November - see details below.
