A Romantic Orchard at the Base of the Blue Ridge Mountains

Nature and enchantment collide at Castle Hill Cider alongside miles of pristine white fencing, fragrant apple orchards and a centuries-old European linden grove. Settle into the rolling Virginia countryside and delight in easy, natural bucolic beauty.

Royal roots run deep as Castle Hill estate was established in 1764 on 1,500 acres of King George II’s land grant. Today, the historic home and gardens occupy 600 acres while couples host magnificent weddings on an additional 600 original estate acres.
Indoor and outdoor venues provide ample space for up to 350 guests. Pronounce your vows under 4,500 apple trees and a pink sunset glow. Host cocktail hour by the serene lake. Play out your dream photo shoot in the lush grove. Dance and dine in the iconic white cider barn and spill out onto terraced lawns boasting exquisite backdrops.
The harmonious union of agriculture and rich Virginia history is palpable. Cherry trees and wisteria arbors line Castle Hill, delivering endless room to drink in fresh country air, far-reaching views and signature ground-to-glass cider cocktails.
