Thierache, Picardie

Gregoire Le Roux makes his wonderful cider in Rozoy sur Serre, a small village near the French border with Belgium. He’s about an hour north of Reims in Champagne, and an hour south of Chimay in Belgium. Not such a bad place to be if you’re looking for inspiration. Thierache is the name for the region that lies on both sides of the French and Belgian borders, more recognizable to English speakers at the western Ardennes.
