Nelson County, Virginia
It’s no secret that Nelson County is the place to be on the east coast if you are in the business of making wine, beer, and now cider! Bold Rock Cidery started construction a few weeks ago on the site owned by John Washburn. It’s on the left about 2 miles south of Nellysford soon after you pass Spruce Creek. ““It [will] be a welcoming ‘public house’ in the original sense of the word,” said John. “A place for locals to gather and visitors to enjoy.” John managed to lasso one of the world’s premier cider makers, Brian Shanks. Brian is a co-founder and COO of the newly formed company.
In our September 2011 issue we take a look at the the latest happenings with the progress of Nelson’s breweries and cidery. Click on the image above to read now! Print copies hitting the stands this week!
