The Cyder Market hard cider information for cider makers and drinkers for Chile.
Chile- officially the Republic of Chile, is a South American country occupying a long, narrow strip of land between the Andes to the east and the Pacific Ocean to the west. It borders Peru to the north, Bolivia to the northeast, Argentina to the east, and the Drake Passage in the far south. Chilean territory includes the Pacific islands of Juan Fernández, Salas y Gómez, Desventuradas, and Easter Island in Oceania. Chile also claims about 1,250,000 square kilometres (480,000 sq mi) of Antarctica, although all claims are suspended under the Antarctic Treaty. The arid Atacama Desert in northern Chile contains great mineral wealth, principally copper. The relatively small central area dominates in terms of population and agricultural resources, and is the cultural and political center from which Chile expanded in the late 19th century when it incorporated its northern and southern regions. Southern Chile is rich in forests and grazing lands, and features a string of volcanoes and lakes. The southern coast is a labyrinth of fjords, inlets, canals, twisting peninsulas, and islands. Chile is today one of South America's most stable and prosperous nations.Cider has been made in Chile since colonial times. Southern Chile accounts for nearly all cider production in the country. Chileans make a distinction between "sidra" ("cider"), in fact sparkling cider, and "chicha de manzana" ("apple chicha"), a homemade cider that is considered of less quality. (see Wikipedia)

It’s very dry taste, due to a Brut Nature character, balances well with its natural acidity, giving it the freshness to be a very good compliment to various savory foods. Tiny natural bubbles help enhance its freshness. Ideal to pair with pork and cheese or to have it on its own as an aperitif.

Quebrada del Chucao- is a family run business that starts in 2010. Since then we have dedicated to produce and sell quality handcrafted apple cider. The company is led by the two cousins Diego Rivera and Matías Nahrwold. They have bottled more than 10.000 L since the first vintage in 2012 and they are pioneers on the bottled condition style of cider in Chile. For our cider we only use old varieties from the south of Chile. Most of them were brought a long time ago by European settlers or are locally bred species during the last 80 years. They don’t have a specific varietal identification and normally they are named by the local farmers. Within the ones we use we can find Reineta, Limona, Cabeza de Niño, and others. Other varieties that we use for our cider we give them a common name, sometimes using the orchard name. The apples are harvested in old orchards located around the town of Huiscapi (Between Villarrica and Loncoche) y the heart of the Araucanía Region. We work with small producers located at the old roads called “Fajas”, that connected the region a 100 years ago.
