Nelson County, VA
For months we have been telling you about the progress (here on the web)  over at Bold Rock Hard Cider  just south of Nellysford on Route 151.
As a matter of fact, it’s one of our featured stories in the June issue of Nelson County Life. Photographer/Writer Marcie Gates visited Bold Rock on the very day they started pressing apples that would eventually be the cider in the bottles now! Click above on the magazine image to read that story now.
After all of that work, Nelson’s own, real, hard cider has started flowing. And yes, we have had some of it. Incredible!
Above NCL Publisher Yvette Stafford samples some of the Bold Rock Hard Cider poured by John Washburn, founder of the cidery. Virginia Apple was released to the public for tasting during a special dedication of the Rockfish Valley Foundation - Natural History Museum on June 14, 2012.
In addition to the Virginia Apple shown above, Virginia Draft will be joining it as the hard cider bottled products are released to area stores over the coming weeks!
John Washburn, founder of Bold Rock Hard Cider, tells us the demand from distributors has been through the roof. Look for it to arrive in stores no later than the month of July.
