Why is our Bread different?
Red Hill Bakery is known for our freshly baked breads. The breads are made using old traditional methods. The dough is fermented for 18 hours and not 2 hours like many commercial bakeries.
All our bread is made with minimal ingredients of fresh yeast, super fine salt, laucke unbleached & stoneground flours, olive oil & h20. All baked on Stone Hearth.
Our motto is less is best and time is everything!
Wine bread is one of the most popular breads sold. It is made from the wine yeast left over after fermentation. The lees of the wine. It is added to the sourdough mix to produce lovely soft and rather unique tasting bread. So instead of using crackers, try some wine bread. It is delicious with cheese.
You can freeze the winebread and then pull it out of the freezer and defrost for your party. Many customers have delighted in using the wine-bread in this way.
