Spent the afternoon enjoying cider and sampling their wines made from fermented apples. The staff was well informed and guided us through the tasting experience. We happened to visit during their annual fair where antique vendors, food vendors and farmers set up tables to hawk their wears. Experienced. the best apple cider donuts I've ever tasted, freshly made and hot.... More

Not really sure where the cider and Virginia vintage apples begin and end but the cider tasting is great. The sampler was enough for two of us. You can buy bottles of cider that you have sampled.

I am a fan of Hard Ciders and went to Albemarle Ciderworks to try their ciders. I was impressed with the amount of cider and number of samples given at the tasting. Although the ciders were drier, more similar to what would have historically been produced in the area in the late 1700s, I enjoyed trying them. We finished up... More

Made a special visit due to a recommendation, loved the place, bought 4 bottles of wine. First one exploded the next day. Second bottle leaked about half the contents. Threw both away. Finally, home & opened #3. Delicious, but no standard cork or stopper will fit the tiny neck of your bottles. So unless you want to grind down something... More

My wife and I saw an add for this cider works and thought why not. We were very pleasantly surprised. I'm a big fan of cider, but most of what you can get at the store is a little too sweet for me. The cider was delicious and there were were plenty of food options sort of "ala carte" that... More

A family run cidery serving award winning ciders with free local music every Saturday and Sunday. What more could you want? Has a selection of local meats, cheeses and bread if you need a bite to eat. And fresh fruit from July through the Fall. Is now doing Artisan Popups the third Saturday of each month. Nice to see that... More

Albermarle CiderWorks was our first stop in a recent Virginia winery tour. We are so glad we went there. The service was great - very knowledgeable about the cider as well as sharing fun facts about apples in general. We enjoyed the tasting so much that we all ended up taking a bottle home.

We enjoyed a lazy Sunday afternoon here with family. The Ragged Mountain band was playing and we decided to order a flight to taste the different ciders on offer. Expensive enough for what was on offer but we enjoyed our afternoon nonetheless . Disappointed that there was no evidence of making cider, is this done elsewhere? Also, the trees had... More

My wife and I visited several wineries in the Charlottesville area for our anniversary this past weekend. We started off with Pippin Hill and visited Albemarle CiderWorks second, since they are only three miles apart. There had been a 5k race on the property in the morning, and the 5k was tearing down, but there was some live music out... More

The location is beautiful and there is plenty of seating for everyone, including tables in the bar area, an entire room in the back and additionally seating outside. The staff is friendly and extremely knowledgeable about the ciders. We got two, six cider flights to share between three people which was prefect.
