Nick Doughty, Cidermaker
Nick’s interest in orchards and cider started as a young kid being taken out to little hole-in-the-wall cideries by his father in Somerset, England. Nick worked in orchards and vineyards in New Zealand before studying winemaking at Lincoln University near Christchurch. He’s worked in small wineries in New Zealand, Northern California, and Oregon, but the goal has always been to get back to Austin. Nick is a winemaker turned cidermaker, and stoked about the complexity and approachability of craft cider.
