Cider Tasting in Balestrand

  • Sjøtunsvegen 34, Sogndal

  •  /  km From You
Overview

Droplets on the skin of apples. The light kiss of blossoms. Bubbles rising through sweet gold. Do you care about the stories behind what you drink?

Are you thirsty for new flavors and insights? You'll have a new understanding of fruit growing and cider production after just 90 minutes with us. And you'll expand your world of taste by sampling 5 distinct ciders in our glass house overlooking the Sognefjord.

We start at the beginning, in our organic orchard on the banks of the Sognefjord, the oldest fruit-growing region in Norway. I'll show how the tastes we seek start with small cuttings. They stretch towards the sky in Balestrand's unique fjord light, which has inspired adventurers and artists for generations.

Together we learn the basics of growing apples and the local traditions, from the 1100s to today. Then we step into the Cider House, where we taste our way through five ciders, and learn that apples are more than just apples. Together we get acquainted with the whole spectrum of tastes: sweet dessert apples, acidic cooking apples, and bitter cider apples.

And we'll taste that cider is more than just cider. We sample our way through five unique styles, from light and easy "veranda cider" to heavy tannin-infused cider, best drunk alongside bold and savory dishes. (By the way, we also have a restaurant where you can do just that.)
