Sidro Wine is the first experiment with apples.
They wanted to make a cider using the apples from the old trees growing in the vineyards. Like with grapes, Irpinia has an incredible variety of local and heritage apples. But after harvesting and pressing they soon realised the quantity was too small to make a cider on its own and they decided to co-ferment it with a Coda di Volpe coming from a parcel which was harvested in late November (a wine called Glu Glu was made with the same grapes). The result was extraordinary and even though they were tempted to bottle it still, they decided at the end to re-ferment in bottle using frozen Greco must for the 'tirage'.
