Discovering Virginia’s Ciders during the Third Annual Cider Week

Castle Hill

Castle Hill Cider

Starting Friday, November 14, Virginia is celebrating the Third Annual Cider Week. The excitement continues until November 23. Events will take place at cideries and restaurants.

Cider, once a very popular drink, is now on the rise again in popularity and the industry is growing quickly. Virginia has 10 cideries.

According to a press release for Cider Week Virginia, “Virginia is currently the sixth-largest apple-producing state by acreage in the country, and cider is a rich part of the state’s heritage. Cider had its first heyday in 18th and 19th century Virginia, when it was enjoyed by some of our most notable residents, including Thomas Jefferson, John Adams and George Washington.”

Cider Week Events 

Events include cider tastings, cider and food pairings, a cider crawl, cider dinners and more. Visit the Cider Week Virginia website event page for details.
