I had the pleasure of interviewing four guys from Quebec who are passionate about cidermaking. Quebec is a french speaking province so were quite kind in helping each other and helping me understand what they are making at Les Vergers de la Colline. I know you will enjoy this Cider Chat!
Les Vergers de la Colline opened in 2003.
The team is headed by Marc -Antoine Lasnier, whose family owns this Quebec cidery. Marc’s family has been growing apples since 1926. They made cider during the Canada’s prohibition and it should be noted that in 1920 beer, wine, beer and all alcohol was legal. Only cider was prohibited. Not until the early 1970’s did cider become legal.
You can listen to the story behind the prohibition of cider as Marc tells it.
Les Vergers de la Colline produces ciders that range all the way up to 11%. Below is a photo of the ice cider that we drank during this chat and discussed.
