Such as:
   Pipo de Basto  and   Porta da Loja

 

In this region was usual to bake apples on Christmas Eve with Vinho Verde and Sugar, it was part of the tradition!

And in Easter,
the same variety of apples
were offered to the local priest, clearly demonstrating the

durability of this apple.
These varieties bring a unique flavor to the surface and that, makes this Cider completely  Naked of other ingredients!

 

Our Goal is to provide you with the taste of  NATURAL!

 
Trough bio-dynamic concepts mixing it with real apples that will make you feel what we call REALITY!

Our Apples

Our Apples

The region of Minho has a few apple varieties most of them with unusual names!

Here are some of them:
Porta da Loja (Cellar’s door),
 Pipo de Basto (Basto’s Barrel),
Três ao Prato (Three on the plate),
Sangue de Boi (Bull’s blood),
Beijo da Rainha (Queen’s Kiss),
Boa Vontade (Goodwill),
among others.

The Minho’s tradition on regional apple production still lives thanks to the willingness of the farmers!

However, has decreased and the tendency its to disappear due to improved and more profitable commercial varieties.

Promoting sustainable fruit farming perfectly adapted to the region is one of the main missions for a regional biodiversity with potential for economic development.

And its here that NUA CIDER comes along!

Stay real, stay proud of your heritage and show it to the world!

 

Its complex flavor is subtly tart, and is a versatile ingredient for recipes ranging from sweet to savory. 

Pipo de Basto apples burst with juice with every bite, and they are also a delicious addition to salads, pies, sauces, and baked goods.

 

The Pipo de Basto apple’s name comes from its shape, a barrel!

Pleasantly crisp, sweet and juicy, this popular apple features a  beautiful  bright red skin mottled with yellow. 

Porta da Loja is a very rustic apple, yellow but with a very stained red color.

As a sharp taste and a thick pulp.

This apple is associated with a almost forgotten tradition that is and consists of being eaten on Christmas Eve.

 

The fruit has a light yellow color, but very stained red, with scattered irregularly spread scale. The taste is intense and the pulp is tick..

Produced in the northern region of Portugal, it is presumed to have been first produced in a Monastery by the Benedictine monks.

The apple is baked in the oven or in the coals,
then mixed in a mug of Vinho Verde and sugar,
and then eaten. This is called a “tired horse soups”, unlike in other regions of the country where this name applies to sugared bread and wine soups.
