The history of the Jaanihanso Cider House can be traced back to the 18th century. The soulful country house came to the current owners in 2000 and is situated about 38 km north of Pärnu. The growing conditions aren’t really at all different from the famous Cider regions of Brittany or southwestern England.
The Jaanihanso apple farm and cider house has about 4000 apple trees in 25 hectares of land. They favour natural methods of production – the ciders are fermented with wild yeasts and they aren’t cooked, filtered or infused with CO2. It's all about méthode champenoise! The natural, long fermentation is interfered with as little as possible so the ciders can gain complex aromatics.
