Enchanting Virginia Orchard Bliss

The much admired Castle Hill estate was established in 1764 on 1,500 acres of King George II’s land grant. Castle Hill Cider and its historic home and gardens rest on 600 stunning acres of rolling Virginia countryside near Keswick, just 15 miles from downtown Charlottesville.
The expansive orchard hosts brilliant weddings throughout ample indoor and outdoor venues, including a beautiful lake, lush groves, a picturesque iconic white cider barn and terraced lawns. Cherry trees, wisteria arbors and more than 4,500 apple trees bask in the clean country air and a calming sense of agriculture and rich local history wash over the manicured land.
Savor specialty cider cocktails, tucked-away prepping suites, lawn games and rustic chic country details. Prepare for your big day in a beautiful bridal suite featuring a wood-burning stone fireplace and porch with spectacular views. Say your vows under grand oak trees and dance the night away in a spacious modern event barn.
