Hillbilly Cider



Sample the range of award-winning cider made from locally-grown, 100% crushed fruit made with minimal intervention at the Hillbilly tasting shed on Bells Line of Road.


A move to an orchard in Bilpin over a decade ago was the inspiration for winemaker Shane and his wife Tessa to create this local favourite Blue Mountains cider. With 20 years of wine and cider making under his belt, including time spent working in cider regions around the world – Shane has created a range of internationally award- winning alcoholic and non-alcoholic ciders. Hillbilly is also the only cider company in the world to use the ‘Julie’ apple – a chance seedling discovered growing at Shields orchard. Available locally in bars, restaurants and bottle shops as well as further afield in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane. It is worth dropping into the new cider shed in Bilpin for a taste straight out of the barrels. Woodfired pizzas are also available, enjoyed on the lawn or under the rustic shelter.
