    Went to Castle Hill Cider from Gordonsville. A work of caution, there is not a sign for the Cider spot going south on Route 15 - so you need to pay attention to your map. The sign we saw is you just p...  more »

    The Castle Hill Cidery is a beautiful venue with astounding sprawling grounds. We went to a wedding there last week and were stunned by the view. Very nice.  more »

    Even though there was a large group at the bar, we were served promptly. For a tasting, you pick out a flight off the list. Server offered some descriptions, but we did not find the cider drinkable an...  more »

    Good place to be and enjoying some cider. Love the atmosphere! It was great having a glass of cider and walk around the by the lake. Will definitely try to make it back.

    We had a horrible experience. We had a group of 12. We were late for our reservation but called ahead to make sure they could still take us. They said they could. The server inside was terribly rude and treated us like an inconvenience. So we went outside and said we hoped they were more cheerful than the girl inside. The manager started yelling at us. We left. I'll never go back and I'll never drink their cider!

    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.
