It's a Cider Day in Virginia with News from Foggy Ridge

Virginia Cider Week draws to a close on a sad note today, as the Wine Dogs learned that Foggy Ridge Cider - the one that started it all - has fermented its last batch of apples.

Back in 2013, when the Wine Dogs decided to take a break from their usual weekend wining and check out Virginia's booming hard cider industry, they naturally started with Virginia's first modern cidery - Foggy Ridge Cider. Check out the In-Cider Scoop on Foggy Ridge Cider from the Wine Dogs.

There were eight operating cideries in Virginia at the time; today, that number has grown to 22 according to the Governor's proclamation declaring the first full week before Thanksgiving (November 10-19th) as "Virginia Cider Week."

You can catch the tail end of the cider celebration this weekend, including the Annual Cider Smackdown at Albemarle Ciderworks and the Alexandria Cider Festival at historic Lloyds House. Or drop by Foggy Ridge on Saturday to learn about growing heirloom apples from the First Lady of Cider herself, Dianne Flynt. Click here to find an event near you.
