A great “early” Fall day at a great venue for sitting on the lawn, listening to some excellent live music, and enjoying their excellent cider!!!
Big thanks to all the folks that make it such a special place.

Albemarle CiderWorks is just west of Charlottesville and nestled among several wineries. It is a must stop if you are heading deeper into Nelson County perhaps venturing towards the Nelson 151. The staff was very friendly and honored our reserved table even though we were the only ones visiting at the time. The cider was very good and my wife and I enjoyed slow sipping on the stone patio. We will definitely be buying Albemarle Cider wherever we find it.

We brought in take-out food, which they encourage, so that question wasn't applicable, but I couldn't progress in the survey without rating the food. Service was superior in these pandemic times. Cider also tastes really great. I particularly love the Arkansas Black. Jupiter's Legacy is a must have. Don't overlook Harrison, 1817 and Virginia Hewes Crab. I took home a mixed case and then some. Cheers!

No food available, so bring with if you're hungry. Cider was great, didn't dislike any! The brut is best. Live music made the experience extra pleasant- the musician kept her volume low and made sure she wasn't blasting us by asking. Staff was super nice & accommodating.

They don’t really have food, just chips, etc. My review is for the cider and the ambiance, both of which are very good and well worth the visit. We’ve been members for years, for a reason. Highly recommend.
