Heirloom Apple Tasting

September 17, 2022 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am PDT


Of course, you’ve heard of Granny Smith and Red Delicious, but what about Esopus Spitzenburg and Belle de Boskoop? At Albemarle CiderWorks, we cultivate over 250 unique apple varieties, and we want to share them with you!

Join our CEO, in-house apple experience, and studied historian, Charlotte Shelton on a journey through culinary history and the apples that made the cut. While you taste a variety of unique and heritage apples, Charlotte will treat you to the story of each fruit, its origin, development, and how each shines best on the table (and in the bottle). From Arkansas Black to Zabergau Reinette, this unique experience offers an elevated look at apples from across the pages of history and the globe.

Tastings will begin at 1pm on all dates and run for about an hour.

Tickets Include:

  • Tasting of 6-8 rotating fruit varieties*
  • 1 glass of cider showcasing at least one of the varieties from the tasting**
  • ½ peck of apples to take home* (~5lbs)*

Please contact for large group (8+) reservations

*Varieties dependent on season and availability

**Non-alcoholic, fresh juice can be substituted when available and if desired
