Bold Rock Hard Cider

Bold Rock Hard Cider Back in 1985, John Washburn bought a farm on the Rockfish River in Nelson County, Virginia, attracted by the trout river running through the property and the gorgeous Blue Ridge Mountains surrounding the farm. As years passed, nearby wineries began making names for themselves and award-winning microbreweries started to gain fame as the “Brew Ridge Trail.” The idea occurred to John that a cidery would bridge the gap between wine connoisseur and beer enthusiast. He imagined it in a big timber frame barn to compliment the area’s rural character and scenic beauty. An innovative tasting room with a floor to ceiling glass wall would allow full view of cider making activities. From its location atop a hill overlooking the Rockfish River, visitors would enjoy the beautiful rural and mountain views. This would be a “public house” in the original sense of the word - - a welcoming place for locals and visitors to “Drink in the scenery!”
