Nagging reality

  True Cider, not popular Hard Cider, is emerging from behind the skirt of wine and finding a receptive audience from drink connoisseurs.  It, along with Hard Cider (which is emerging from the pant leg of beer), is the fastest growing beverage in America right now.  Yet as established apple farmers and business entrepreneurs get dressed-up for the ball there are two nagging realities which can't be overlooked: real cider apples do not come from established commercial orchards, and cider-making is an art form that one can’t learn in a few year's time.  In fact, it takes longer to develop the artistic capacity for high cider then it does to develop an entirely new orchard comprised of actual cider apples.
