We were staying in Gordonsville at our time share and decided we wanted to try some local cider. After doing some shopping in Charlottesville we headed via our GPS to find Castle Hill. It was quite the drive through the middle of nowhere and we wondered several times if we were totally off track. We persevered and were at last... More

Drove up to this beautiful estate and was really impressed with how this place looks. We were welcomed with a nice warm fire in a cold day. The host was very nice and cheerful. It was a very busy day and just one host which made some a bit impatient but she mangers to handle the crowd very well. I... More

We happened upon this place when we googled "cider" on the way back to Maryland from Shenandoah. The setting is amazing - old estate, gorgeous rolling hills and a new barn they use for cider making, tasting, and weddings. There was a wedding happening later in the afternoon of our arrival, but they accommodated us for a tasting. The bartenders... More

The grounds are lovely, and the tasting room warm and inviting. It was not busy when we arrived, and the three young ladies working there doted on my kids. The ciders are very good, though not yet great. But I have great hopes for what they will do in the future. Drink these ciders the way you would drink wine,... More

We stopped at Castle Hill as the 3rd stop on our wine tour. We were greeted pleasantly at the door and then walked into the tasting area. The woman who placed us, placed us and then placed 3 other ladies right with us in a bar space meant for 4 (we became a total of 10). After some initial confusion,... More

You need to go there just to see it. It really is lovely and I agree with other reviewers that it is the perfect place to get married. They do have tastings. We were the only ones there the day we visited and the staff was friendly and nice. I'm not a big cider person but it was interesting and... More

Having been to many wineries over the years, I would put this venue on the low end of what I've experienced. The host was pleasant enough when we first showed up but when a group she seemed to know arrived they became the focus of her attention. We samples six of their ciders for eight dollars And the host provided... More

We were there as they were just starting to set up for a wedding, and you could tell it was going to be gorgeous. Just the views coming up the driveway were great. This was our first time at a cider tasting, and I was surprised at the SIZE of the pours! You really got an accurate taste of these... More

If I were getting married this place might be under consideration. Lovely setting in the foothills of Virginia with a set up for events. The cider was...okay (and I like cider) but the atmosphere is almost perfect!

Came across this beautiful property on a day trip last year and decided to check out a little closer and schedule a tour. Our guide, Evelyn was super sweet and seemed to have a tight grasp on weddings and wedding planning which was refreshing for someone who works for one of DC's top wedding planners. The barn house feel lends... More
