Castle Hill Cider
Cidery that produces hard apple cider made from Virginia varietals. Cider is made in small batches in kvevri, terracotta vessels which are buried underground in the world’s most ancient method of fermentation. Cider is sold exclusively on grounds from the Tasting Room. Cidery includes a wedding and special event venue featuring 11,000 square-foot barn on centuries old estate of Castle Hill, home of Colonel Thomas Walker, guardian and mentor to Thomas Jefferson. The Tasting Room features a mahogany tasting bar, handsome white oak paneling and a fieldstone fireplace. Here you can taste our different ciders and purchase them by the bottle to go or enjoy them on site. Beautiful French doors open from the Tasting Room to a classic octagonal porch. Soul-restoring views extend in all directions to the mountains, lake and orchard. After hours, the Tasting Room is the perfect place for hosting cocktail parties, rehearsal dinners, buffet luncheons, business meetings, and other small gatherings.
