This Sunday, the Gesellschaftshaus of the Palmengarten is all about cider. Then the large international cider fair takes place here, which proves that not only in Frankfurt a good Stöffchen is estimated. Exhibitors from Germany and abroad will present their very own cider creations, whereby not only the different apple varieties, but also sometimes very unusual flavour combinations will provide many a treat for the palate. Before the actual public fair, there will be an exclusive tasting for professional visitors such as restaurateurs, wine traders and sommeliers starting at 11 am. From 1 pm, all visitors are then invited to taste their way through the international world of cider.
A highlight is certainly the delegation from Japan, the guest country of 2016, which has again taken the long way, as well as travel and transport costs, to be present at the cider fair in 2017. For the organisers, this is a sure sign that they are doing everything right with their concept.
One reason for the success might also be the beautiful location. The Gesellschaftshaus in the Palmengarten is ideally suited for presenting all exhibitors and offers in a clearly arranged manner. In order to do justice to the internationality of the fair, numerous nations present themselves with their products, including England, South Tyrol, Ireland, Czech Republic, France, Austria. In 2017, special focus will be on Denmark, this year's guest country of the fair, which will arrive with a delegation of eight companies.
In Denmark, the wine scene is just really emerging. There are about 30 to 35 commercially operating farms, which together produce about 200,000 bottles of fruit wine per year. It's a small, but fine market, as some of the wines have already made it beyond Denmark's borders into top gastronomy and are appreciated by wine lovers and professionals alike. Now visitors to the "Cider International" fair can also get an idea of the quality of fruit wines from Denmark.
"Cider International" offers many good reasons for trade visitors and connoisseurs to pay the fair a visit. You can find all information about the individual exhibitors, the range of products and the exhibitors HERE
