Inspired by the historical roots of Castle Hill Estate and the first Albemarle Pippin apples grown here in 1777, our cider makers set out to create the highest quality Virginia hard cider season after season.

Utilizing a variety of cider apples grown both on our 600-acre grounds and by a community of local growers, our library of orchard-driven ciders is available via flight, glass, or bottle at our tasting room in Keswick, Virginia. Select bottles are also available for purchase online.

We invite you to visit us in beautiful Keswick, Virginia, just 20 minutes from downtown Charlottesville. Outdoor patio seating as well as indoor seating is available year-round. Guests are encouraged to bring a picnic blanket or camp chairs and spread out. A light bites menu is available, and outside food is permitted. Castle Hill Cider is family and dog-friendly, provided that pups are well-behaved and on a leash at all times. Castle Hill Cider is also available to rent for weddings, meetings, and private events.

Discover Virginia cider at Castle Hill—a true ground to glass adventure for your senses.
