Mountains of Apples


The Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia and North Carolina yield a bounty of some of the world’s best apples grown by family farmers around the region. These folks are our friends, they provide the fruit we need to make Bold Rock’s award winning craft cider.

Crushed and Crafted in the Blue Ridge Mountains

good cider brings people together

From Humble Beginnings

We’re proud to say we’ve won more than 100 awards, and our cider can now be found throughout the Mid-Atlantic and Southeast. But all of this growth hasn’t sacrificed quality. Our dedicated cider makers crush and craft locally picked apples to create our variety of crisp and refreshing hard cider styles. That’s true of the two cideries we built and established at both ends of the Blue Ridge, including our flagship timber frame Cider Barn in Nellysford, Virginia, as well as our facility in the western North Carolina mountain town of Mills River. As more people continue to enjoy our freshly crafted cider, we are committed to preserving Bold Rock’s founding ideals: Real Apples. Real Craft. Real People.
