Friday Food Foto – Domaine de Kerveguen Carpe Diem Cider

Domaine-de-Kerveguen-Carpe-Diem-Cider

In 2010 while visiting Brittany France, Mr. Misadventures and I had dinner at Cafe Breizh in Cancale.  During dinner at this delightful crêperie we ordered a recommended cider from a “small-batch” ciderie in the region.  We enjoyed it so much we convinced the owner to sell us a few bottles to take with us on the rest of our trip. It made for an excellent accompaniment for our gourmet picnics.

The following year in 2011 we continued where we left off in Brittany traveling further south into the region.  One mission we had was to find the ciderie and buy more bottles.  We visited Domaine de Kerveguen ciderie and spoke with the owner as we purchased our cider.  At that time Mr. Misadventures tried to convince him to export his exceptional product to the U.S. but he was not interested at all and said he would never do it.

Well I guess it is true what they say about “never saying never” because two weeks ago, we spotted it in our local grocery store, Berkeley Bowl!  We bought them out, bien sûr!  And we have been celebrating ever since!

  1. I’ve never tasted cider before!

  2. Andi Fisher says:

    @AndiP, you are SO missing out! Think if apple champagne…and you will be on board!

  3. This looks so delicious! I have only had non-alcoholic cider made at an apple orchard here in VA. And in Brittany, one of the most beautiful places in the world. What a lucky girl! Your name reminds me of Pretty in Pink, her name was Andi also.

  4. I had no idea that there was such a thing as alcoholic cider, very interesting. I think if I were in France I would try it (when in Rome), thank you for sharing this post.
