The Cyder Market hard cider information for cider makers and drinkers in Rhode Island.
Newport Vineyards was originally planted in 1977 on a hill overlooking Rhode Island Sound with the goal of producing fine wines and as a way of preserving beautiful agricultural land from rapid development. Aquidneck Island is blessed with one of the most desirable farming areas in the country, if not the world. This extraordinary micro-climate is created by a combination of the warm waters of the Gulf Stream to the south and the moderating effects of Narragansett Bay.

Warren Cider Works Company- Rhode Island’s first tree-to-glass hard cider company has quietly launched in Warren. After six years of growing apples in a small orchard in the Touisset part of town and making many test batches, Spencer Morris recently opened Warren Cider Works Company, on Child Street. It serves as a tasting room, production space, and retail shop for his small-batch fermented apple juice. “My production is still very limited,” Morris says. “I’m working on the whim of nature and the speed at which a tree can grow. Next year, I’ll have more.” In the tasting room, Morris is currently selling some of the 22 different ciders he made last year, in glasses, flights, and bottles. On any given day, he’ll make four types of cider available for tasting, such as a single-variety Winesap, mixed russet, or one of many orchard blends.
