Albemarle CiderWorks

Albemarle CiderWorks is a family-run Cidery and Tasting Room that produces cider from heritage varieties of apples that can thrive in Albemarle County,Virginia.

Thomas Jefferson experimented with 18 or more varieties of apples at Monticello, only a few miles from our orchard at Rural Ridge. We grow a dozen or so of those heritage cultivars that are still extant as well as other old-fashioned varieties that are blended to create full-bodied ciders to rival those produced in the Colonial era.

Tasting Room is open on Wednesdays through Sundays from 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Cost: $3.00 per person.

For a place to stay, consider our guest house, Rural Ridge Cottage, located on our property near the Tasting Room and Cidery.
