Wednesday Night Cider Tasting: Albemarle Ciderworks

  • Market Street Wine 311 East Market Street Charlottesville, VA, 22902 United States (map)

Five Reasons to do an Albemarle Ciderworks Tasting

  1. Because Albemarle Ciderworks was at the forefront of area artisan cider making. Way back in 1992, the Shelton Family met with apple expert and family friend Tom Burford, and Burford helped them turn hobby garden into an orchard dedicated to preserving rare, heirloom apples.

  2. Because good cider apples are unlike good eating apples. You'll only get these unique, tart and sour apple flavors in ciders.

  3. Because apples are not only an important American fruit, they're an important Virginia fruit. In fact, when you drink the Royal Pippin, you're drinking a cider made from a style of apple that George Washington and Thomas Jefferson planted.

  4. Because cider was the beverage of choice in colonial America. Drinking some is the easiest reenactment you'll ever participate in!

  5. Because they're good!
