Cider Styles - What's the Deal?

Boutique cider is a growing industry in Australia, like boutique beer, people are becoming more willing to pay for quality products that are hand-crafted here in Australia, made with Australian ingredients. This is particularly relevant for cider, in which the general population just assume all cider is made from fresh apples. Unfortunately, this is not always the case, there are many large cider companies that make cider by simply diluting and fermenting foreign apple concentrate. A heap of sugar is then added to the end product, with some companies even adding artificial apple aromas and flavours! This is hardly healthy, nor does this process support the large number of hard working apple farmers scattered throughout Australia.

Health Benefits of Ohana Winery Tropical Fruit Wines

People often ask us here at Ohana Winery…why make fruit wines? Well despite the fact they all taste amazing, they are also full of health benefits.

In fact, some fruits even have additional health properties that are not found in grape wines. Below, the winemaker discusses the health benefits of wines produced here at Ohana Winery and Exotic Fruits.

South Burnett Food and Wine in the Park

On Saturday the 11th March, the team at Ohana Winery and Exotic Fruits ventured out to Kingaroy for the South Burnett Wine and Food in the Park. It was a beautiful warm sunny day in Kingaroy and after stocking up on plenty of ice, we were ready to go! After a slow start, things really picked up as the weather cooled down. The crowd were fascinated by the unique products we had for tastings. These included our Lychee Sparkling, Lychee wine, Mango wine, Jaboticaba Rose, Pineapple wine and the old favourites, cold drip coffee liqueur and lemoncello. To our surpirse, it was the pineapple wine that won out on the day. People really enjoy the fresh pineapple aromas and flavours that this wine displays, perfect for drinking on a sunny afternoon. Suddenly, it was 730 and time to pack up! The music and crowd were still pumping and it was an enjoyable afternoon for all. Definitely an event worth visiting! See you in 2017.
