  • We had no idea what unsweetened cider would taste like but we gave it a try. If you like this sort of beverage this is a good place to visit. Staff are warm and friendly and serving size is generous. ...  more »

  • Arrived in the middle of a fundraising event... An adult Easter egg hunt. We decided not to participate, but there was a nice crowd. We did a cider tasting and spent a quiet hour outside, a nice addition to our afternoon.
  • The cider was excellent, the cheese plate was delicious, and the staff was insanely friendly even though our ride arrived embarrassingly late after they closed. Well worth the trip for a tasting!
  • My wife and I made the 30 minute drive from Charlottesville to Castle Hill Cider on a Saturday. Overall it was a really good experience and we'll definitely be coming back. The drive is beautiful once you leave Charlottesville and get on to 231. The street is lined with large estates. It makes the drive genuinely enjoyable. It's worth noting that you'll lose service at some point so don't quit out of Maps if you're relying on your cell phone for directions, you won't be able to open Maps back up and get directions again. The grounds are incredible. You drive in on their one lane gravel road, lined with shrubs, trees, vineyards and orchards. Their buildings are also fantastic. My wife and I both commented on how amazing this would be for a wedding venue. They have lots of parking, although on Saturday at 3:00 this was far from an issue. They have both indoor and outdoor bars and lots of outdoor seating. They also have bocci and corn hole outside and checkers inside. Dogs are welcome both indoors and out (at least when people brought their greyhound and another group brought their golden doodle indoors the employees didn't stop them). We opted for a premium tasting ($12, for 10 1-oz pours of cider). Initially we went for the standard tasting ($10, for 8 1-oz pours of cider) but with one tasting left we were given the option to switch and we decided we'd like to try the two that were excluded from the standard set. Their samples go from dry to sweet and the two exclusions fit in at the end of that spectrum. They were worth an extra $4. This was my only complaint about this cidery, they have tastings instead of flights. I'd much rather sit down with all of my options at once with written information and read through the differences while I make my way through the various ciders, rather than having someone give them to me in a set order, while I stand, and set the pace for me. They also have a "club" which you can join for free. This gives you two free tastings or two free glasses of cider per visit ($16 value, once a month) and a 20% discount on all of their ciders, with the commitment of buying three bottles of cider every three months (at that 20% discount). We like the grounds enough and the cider enough that we'll probably end up doing this once we've explored the area a bit more. We bought a $17 bottle of their Big Pippin (their cocktail cider), and if we drank one of these once a month we wouldn't be complaining. When our families come to visit we'll definitely bringing them by Castle Hill.
  • Sitting out on the lawn was a great place to enjoy the weather and cider.
  • Great ciders. I especially liked the 1764 which is really more of a liqueur and us available only in the premium tasting. The cheese selection was great and we loved the Red Row. The tasting server could have been a bit more informative but when she realized we were also there to buy, she became more friendly. They had a beautiful outdoor area with tables where we had a small picnic. They also had corn hole and bocci set up. They host weddings and were awarded best large menu. Very enjoyable
