Our cidery is based in Free Union, just outside of Charlottesville, in the heart of Virginia apple country at the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Our approach to cidermaking is straightforward: use local apples, experiment, learn by doing, reading, and engaging with the beer, cider, and winemaking communities. Keep it fresh; keep it funky.

All of our ciders start with locally-grown fruit, cultivated with care and harvested at peak flavor from nearby orchards and family farms. We press heirloom and traditional cider apples such as the Albemarle Pippin and Virginia Winesap as well as modern cider apples such as the Gold Rush, creating ciders that would make our forebears proud. Unlike many larger producers, we don’t add sugar or water to our ciders. Our process is respectful of a long Virginia tradition but we are not afraid to push boundaries to make ciders that stand out.
