My husband and my preconceived idea about hard cider has been shattered by this incredible place. We enjoyed tasting the different varieties of hard cider and learned a lot. We enjoyed it with a cheese plate. Very friendly staff.

Try the new cideries that are popping up across the state. Castle Hill Cidery is experimenting with heirloom varieties of apples. The grounds are beautiful. You can engage in sampling their new blends either by the warmth of the fireplace or while enjoying the view on the patio. A great place for parties, weddings, or other functions.

We're not much into cider, but this one does a very nice job with it! The venue is amazing as well... it's large, beautiful and a great place for an event! The staff is knowledgeable and friendly. They have a great assortment of ciders, so you might find something you like if you visit. It's definitely worth the stop when... More

We visited this lovely establishment with friends and were immediately taken with the beauty that surrounds, the lovely ambiance and the ciders they offer. We did purchase our favorite, as did our friends, and all-in-all, it was a mostly-pleasant experience. I mention 'mostly' because of the young gentleman who was offering the tastings, whose name I will omit. As a... More

If you are in the area visiting wineries this is a wonderful addition to your trip. They have excellent quality cider. (Ended up buying two bottles.) We thoroughly enjoyed our tasting. We saw it on our map and decided to take a chance and were not disappointed. Beautiful location. Definitely worth the stop.

Stopped by Castle Hill Cidery with my girlfriend and her parents. They have added a new outdoor tasting pavilion which was very nice. The ciders offered were not sweet, as one would expect, but very tasty. The views from the pavilion and from the tasting room are of the beautiful Albemarle County countryside. If you are interested in tasting some... More

Beautiful surroundings; very pleasant tasting room and hostess; well informed staff. I found the ciders a bit tart for my taste - I like just a hint of sweet. The distilling methods were fascinating to learn about and we will definitely go back for at least one more visit.

We went on a Saturday as soon as they opened (11am). As soon as we walked in we were greeted with a "I have a party of 15 coming in 15 minutes, so you'll need to go to that side of the bar." Hello and Welcome to Castle Hill would be a nice start! At that side of the bar... More

I attended my friend's birthday party in the large barn with its ample space for round tables that seated 8 people, bar, buffet, and dance floor. The floor to ceiling windows let in lots of light and look out to the beautiful Virginia countryside. This is a great location for parties, weddings, and receptions.

Located in an absolutely beautiful country setting, is was the perfect afternoon. The cider tasting consisted of a large selection of hard ciders. All unique and fun to try. The staff were super friendly and knowledgeable. Following the tasting, my wife and I ordered a glass of our favorite cider and enjoyed a picnic lunch we brought along. We were... More
