Castle Hill Cider

Looking for a fun cidery to check out within a close proximity to Charlottesville, check out Castle Hill Cider in Keswick.


A true ground to glass cidery nestled in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains while only a short drive from Charlottesville or Richmond, VA. This family and pet friendly cidery is a true gem featuring beautiful views, plenty of outdoor seating, and cider in just about every form, including cider slushies and mimosas! On weekends, visitors can expect food items like charcuterie platters, a dip trio featuring fresh guacamole, and Sunday brunch with french toast.


For the kids, there are non-alcoholic options such as orange juice, cider, and ice cream. Play a round of lawn games such as cornhole or jenga, or sit and relax with a picnic blanket by pond or take a short walk to a nearby creek. There is truly something for everyone at Castle Hill.


See below for details of an upcoming event hosted by Cider Hill on May 15, which benefits The Blue Ridge Area Food Bank.




Castle Hill is hosting Fest 231 on Sunday, May 15, 2022 from noon to 5pm.
