Cider-Making at Rippon Lea

Get a taste of tradition with Max Allen.

Take part in a hands-on cider workshop and tasting with wine and drinks writer Max Allen that will go beyond mass-produced to showcase the history and variety of cider.

Max, a cider tragic and a Legend of Melbourne Food & Wine Festival, will take you back to the early days of cider-making in Australia with a Saturday afternoon spent in the historic grounds of Rippon Lea Estate.

Taste rare heritage apples grown in the Estate’s orchard, drink single-varietal ciders, and help crush fruit and press juice using an antique 19th-century cider press.
