Celebrating a Virginia tradition of creating hard cider.

Cider Week is November 14-24, 2014.

In 2012, Virginia became the first state to have an official “Cider Week” proclaimed by its governor. This year Virginia Cider Week takes place November 14-24, with special tastings, pairings, dinners, events and workshops.

At the opening of Cider Week Virginia, the Richmond Cider Celebration will bring together ten of Virginia's cideries on Sat., Nov. 15, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the historic 17th Street Market for cider tastings (must be 21 or older to enjoy), apple and cider dishes, and all around apple-oriented fun benefiting the Enrichmond Foundation and it's 60 partners throughout the City of Richmond.

Each $20 ticket includes: 10 cider tastings, educational workshops and access to live music. Guests can purchase full servings of cider, apple juice and food a la carte in addition to ticketed samples. Under 21 may enter at no charge and purchase a la carte food and drinks. Register online. Cider will also be available for purchase by the glass or bottle. 

     WHAT IS CIDER?

Cider is fermented apple juice just as wine is fermented grape juice. The best cider, just like the best wine, is carefully crafted from fruit chosen for cider making. That brown stuff you buy in the grocery store juice section is just that, apple juice. In colonial America, fermented cider was the drink of choice. Thomas Jefferson’s champagne-like cider, made with Hewe’s Crabapples, was his “table drink”. Throughout the 19th century, growing apples and crafting cider from cider apples was an integral part of every community. Many Virginia cidermakers now aim to revive the cider tradition by growing, or encouraging others to grow cider apples, and by crafting fine cider.
