At Foggy Ridge Cider we aim to revive the artisan cidermaking tradition. We harvest ripe apples from our three orchards (paired with other quality Virginia grown apples) and craft small batches of carefully selected cider blends. The cidermaker is intimately involved in all aspects of the orchard and Cider House from grafting and pruning to picking and blending.
Over our past ten years making cider in the Blue Ridge Mountains we have learned a great deal. We have a cider to fit everyone’s palette, from our very dry Serious Cider (named after the serious English cider drinkers who prefer a much drier product) to our First Fruit, made from early season apples with a crisp tart flavor and our Stayman Winesap, produced from wonderfully sweet stayman and winesap apples, creating a well balanced fruity cider that pairs well with BBQ and spicy foods. Our Handmade is one of our most popular with a creamy mouth feel and wonderful fruity flavors of citrus and pineapple. We also offer port style dessert ciders that make a nice sweet finish to a meal – Pippin Gold and Pippin Black. We would love for you to try them all.
