Castle Hill Cider has been called some of the best in the world and they take an apple-centric approach to their ciders. They aim to bring out the best of each year’s harvest and to produce the highest quality and most enjoyable ciders using both tradition and cutting edge techniques … everything from buried kvevri to crossflow filtration! Come out and learn a little more about Castle Hill with Geoff.

The Ciders:

  • Serendipity: “Serendipity is a bright, fresh, and fruity cider made from all Albemarle Pippin apples. We press at peak ripeness and ferment, then arrest the fermentation and lightly filter to preserve the apples’ natural sweetness and flavor. 100% Albemarle Pippin.”
  • Terrestrial: “Like a cold pool on a hot day. Bright acidity gives this cider a crisp, clean, refreshing finish. A nose of fresh apples with a hint of peach that follows through on the palate. Blend of Winesap and Albemarle Pippin apples. Terrestrial pairs nicely with oysters and aromatic dishes or makes a cleansing counterpoint to rich cheeses.”
  • Big Pippin: “Big Pippin is a sparkling hard cider made from a blend of Albemarle Pippin and Sweet Stayman apples, infused with ginger. Fresh fruit on the nose with notes of vanilla and caramel on the palette, Big Pippin delivers a lengthy finish of citrus and spice.”
