Overview

Located on the famed beverage corridor along Rt. 151 in Nelson County, the flagship Bold Rock Cider Barn opened in August 2014 and represents our company headquarters, center of operations and primary cider production facility. The ‘Chapel of Apple’ as it is affectionately known is a beautifully rustic timber framed barn overlooking the Rockfish River. Our staff will be happy to explain the process behind our award-winning craft hard cider and following a tasting, enjoy a pint, flight or delicious food from our Feed Room. The Nellysford Cider Barn is open daily at 11 AM.

We loved the long trek up the boardwalk. Very courteous and polite staff. We enjoyed tasting all the free samples of Hard Cider. It rained unfortunately and they canceled the live music and movie outside.

Spent a relaxing afternoon here tasting ciders with lunch. We opted for the hummus tray and charcuterie tray to accompany our tasting flights. Excellent cider, peaceful, beautiful location, and friendly, helpful staff.

We stopped by here on a rainy day and it was still fun. The performers moved inside. The staff is really nice and we sampled 5 different ciders, including the new Raspberry Cider they said was released today. All good family fun.

I believe it is $7 or $8. Not expensive! That's 4 samples, they're small glasses, maybe 4 oz each.
