Best cidery 2013: Bold Rock Cidery

Bold Rock Cidery

1020 Rockfish Valley Hwy. (Nellysford)

Albemarle Ciderworks
2545 Rural Ridge Ln. (North Garden)

Bold Rock makes cider so tasty you could almost bathe in it. In fact, in the 14th century, that’s what people did: As it was often more sanitary than water, kids were baptized in cider. We can’t imagine a better scenario, especially if the tub had been filled with one of this year’s top performers. In Nellysford, Bold Rock combines the talents of a Blue Ridge Mountain farmer and cidermaker from New Zealand. Albemarle Ciderworks in North Garden, founded in 2009, is the elder statesman of the cider revival and grows its own fruit under the name Vintage Virginia Apples.
