If you are new to ciders, but enjoy wine, this is your place! Albemarle CiderWorks crafts high-alcohol ciders with a focus on the fruit that goes into each cider. Many ciders you can get at the grocery store are comparable to beer in terms of...More

In the country but close to town (20 minutes?), it is a pleasant location with inside and tent seating. Cider flights are the way to go, and the flavors are surprisingly disparate, but I have to admit that after 6 of those generous glasses, I...More

If looking to taste ciders like our forefathers drank, then this is the spot! These folks take the time to tell their story - share their knowledge & products! Being a sparkly cider drinker, it was worth the stop to get educated as to how...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...More
