Hard apple cidre in the Willamette Valley

by Nate Rafn

Kevin Zielinski, co-owner of E.Z. Orchards, is one of a handful of cidre-makers in the Willamette Valley. In 2000 he planted French, English, and Early American apple varieties in a small section of orchard. Since then, he has worked each year to perfect the blending and fermentation process. The cidre was officially introduced in late 2010. 

The following video is a behind-the-scenes look at how E.Z. Orchards makes cidre.
