The CORE Cider House

In 1939 the first apple trees were planted by Giovanni Battista (‘Jack’) Della Franca at High Vale Orchard in the Perth Hills (there’s even a house that Jack built!). Three generations later, John Della Franca has captured the unique essence of High Vale’s produce and turned it into CORE Ciders. Like John, his ciders are not ordinary either; individualistic with great character, eminently drinkable and absolutely quaffable (meaning you’ll always come back for more).

Core Cider House is a unique destination providing stunning ciders and wines, delicious food and sweeping apple orchard views. ‘CORE’ encompasses cellar door, an award-winning restaurant, and fun orchard/cidery tours– only 35 minutes from the Perth business district.

Come unwind and take in the CORE experience amid spectacular views of the 4th generation, 40 acre property.

Or if you’re interested in a stunning, unique, rustic yet elegant venue for your wedding or function, check out our website and functions page to view a video of a beautiful wedding held on the property.
