Agathe Letellier is making cider, pommeau and calvados at her cidery Manoir d’Apreval in Pennedepie in Normandy, France. It is a coastal cidery just south of the port town of Honfleur.
She describes it as a family domain that originally has farm animals, but when she arrived at the domain 18 years ago, she took the operation full on as an cidery.
Her passion and conviction towards quality products for both her cider, calvados and pommel and her meals that are made for bus tour can be heard in this chat.
