Albermarle CiderWorks Claims Three Medals at International Competition

North Garden, VA – Albemarle CiderWorks in North Garden VA has announced that three of its locally crafted artisanal ciders won medals in the 2013 Great Lakes International Cider and Perry Competition (GLINTCAP). Jupiter’s Legacy won a silver medal while Royal Pippin and Ragged Mountain won bronze medals in the eighth annual GLINTCAP March 24th, in Grand Rapids, Michigan. This year’s GLINTCAP drew 300 commercial entries in 21 categories.

Albemarle CiderWorks is a family owned Virginia farm winery in its fourth year, dedicated to crafting a carefully fermented cider from the distinctive apple varieties the Shelton family grows. Albemarle CiderWorks grew out of the Shelton family’s Vintage Virginia Apples, an enterprise dedicated to preserving and growing distinctively flavored and heirloom apples. That collection includes some 250 varieties, many grown exclusively for cider, on the family farm located 10 miles south of Charlottesville, Virginia.

The cider is available by the glass or bottle at many restaurants as well as in specialty markets and stores in the area. Albemarle CiderWorks craft cider is currently distributed throughout Virginia and Washington DC. The Albemarle CiderWorks tasting room is located on Route 29 South at 2545 Rural Ridge Lane, North Garden, VA 22959. Visitors can sample the ciders Wednesdays through Sundays, 11 am to 5 pm year round.
