|The Verger de Giverny (Giverny Orchard) specializes in apples trees for
cider. Our 4000 apple trees need steady care, from blooming in May to harvest
The apples oversplit amongst ten varieties. They are hand-harvested when
|As soon as they are harvested the apples are grinded. The pulp is enclosed
into a canvas and covered by a wooden wicker tray. Several trays are
piled up on the press and a strong pressure is exerted on them to extract
The apple juice is put into a vat, and then clarified. It begins to ferment, a process that will last till April or May.
|At Spring it is time to put the cider into bottles.
The apple juice contains 140g of sugar per liter. The longer fermentation
lasts, the more sugar is transformed into alcohol.
|A part of the cider produced by Le Verger de Giverny is distilled on the farm. This alcohol was called "la Goutte de Giverny" (Giverny Drop). It is made after the same principle than the cider-alcohol Calvados which is produced in the Calvados departement in Normandy.|
