Uniquely Nelson and Noel Leeming have partnered to bring you special…
21 DIFFERENT CIDER STANDS!
We have a record number of Cider makers attending this years festival, that means over 100 varieties of Cider for you to try!
Our Cider makers make the trip to Nelson from all over NZ, so you get the chance to chat to them at each stand and get the background story on what you are drinking.
See below for the line-up of who will be there, click the image through to the website to read up on each one.
Read below for the awesome line-up of informative talks about all things Cider.. more info and a timetable out soon on the website.
