Extraordinary Orchards

Cider is a centuries-old tradition in Virginia, first imported from England as a way to stay hydrated when safe water was scarce. From those humble beginnings, the industry has matured and today, approx. 50 cideries across the Commonwealth are crafting ciders of uncommon diversity and sophistication.

Virginia cider production is unique, with variation among each producer and each cider bottled.  Cider makers highlight fresh and inventive flavors through infusions, blends and co-fermentations and carefully balanced tannins, acidity and sugar levels with each vintage. Seventh in U.S. apple production, Virginia cider makers are committed to bringing out the best in their apples.
