“Great winery alternative”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 6, 2014 via mobile

A nice addition to the area wineries. Small but airy and pleasant tasting room. Snacks available (cheese, salami) and a nice patio for relaxing. Friendly staff!

“Another Great Cider Place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 12, 2014

I had a lovely visit. They had 6 ciders for a $5 tasting fee. They do produce another cider but it is currently for purchase only. The pours were plentiful and they even had some of their apples and the juice to taste as well. With bottle prices under $20 you will be sure to leave with a few. Unless you deiced to stay for awhile and enjoy one there. They also sell by the glass.

“Enjoyed the new types of apples”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 22, 2014

We went to explore the orchard and found some lovely gems. They had three types of apples left for purchase, and one of them was a "gold rush" apple, a lovely type which I had never tried before. They have a decent variety of local products within the ciderworks store, including cheeses, mustards, jams, peanuts, etc. Was fun for an afternoon stop, and is not far from the entrance to the blue ridge parkway.

“Cider tasting just south of Charlottesville”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 21, 2013

A 20 minute drive from Charlottesville will get you down to this wonderful farm. It is an apple orchard (Virginia Vintage Apples) and the Albemarle Ciderworks also makes great ciders. Take an afternoon and enjoy the scenic drive and the delicious ciders.

“Tastey Cider”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2013

We were nicely surprised when we tasted the different options CiderWorks had for us. We really liked that it was not like Woodchuck or Crispen. We enjoy visiting wineries, but we will now be adding Cider places in the near future.

The staff was very friendly and helpful! The detials were amazing.
