Potter's Craft Cider

Fresh, Funky Cider

Our approach to cidermaking is straightforward. Use local Virginia apples, experiment, learn by doing, reading, and engaging with the beer, cider, and winemaking communities. Keep it fresh; keep it funky. Our cidery is based in Free Union, just outside of Charlottesville, we are in the heart of apple country at the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains.


All of our ciders start with locally-grown fruit, cultivated with care and harvested at peak flavor from nearby orchards and family farms. All of our ciders start with locally-grown fruit, cultivated with care and harvested at peak flavor from nearby orchards and family farms. We press fresh heirloom and traditional cider apples such as the Albemarle Pippin and Virginia Winesap as well as modern cider apples such as the Gold Rush to create a cider that would make our forbearers proud. Unlike many larger producers, we don’t add sugar or water to our ciders. Our process is respectful of a long Virginia tradition but we are not afraid to push boundaries to make ciders that stand out.
Our tasting room is located inside The Bridge PAI, a non-profit art organization, located in Belmont, south of downtown Charlottesville. We are open Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays with outside seating options. We offer tasting flights, glass pours, bottle sales and growler fills.
