Albemarle CiderWorks is a family-run Cidery and Tasting Room that produces hard cider from heritage varieties of apples that can thrive in Albemarle County, Virginia. Thomas Jefferson experimented with 18 or more varieties of apples at Monticello, only a few miles from our orchard at Rural Ridge. We grow a dozen or so of those heritage cultivars that are still extant as well as other old-fashioned varieties that are blended to create full-bodied ciders to rival those produced in the Colonial era.
In April 2010, Albemarle CiderWorks won the Beverage Artisan category in Edible Blue Ridge Magazine's first-ever "Local Hero Awards." This means that Edible Blue Ridge readers, voting online, chose Albemarle CiderWorks as the best local beverage artisan. We are honored to receive this award in our very first year of production.
