Amuse Bouche was the first cider in Virginia to blend apples with grape skins. Viognier pomace, sourced from Blenheim Vineyards in Charlottesville, are added to this cider and allowed to infuse. Fruity and bright, it goes well with hors d’oeuvres, caviar, and most first courses, also raw bar items.

Notes

50% Ginger Gold, and a blend of Newtown Pippin, Northern Spy, Pristine, Winesap, and Stayman make up this cider. Viognier pomace sourced from Blenheim Vineyards is infused in the finished cider. We follow natural methods.


Brand for Courthouse Creek Cider
Located in Maidens, VIrginia, Courthouse Creek adheres to natural methods of cider making. Our ciders are free from sulfites and all other additives, and we finish our ciders to dry. Indeed, we like to say, "we're not sweet, we're cider!" We also do not filter or fine our cider, and ferment and/or age everything in used barrels. While we did use some cultured yeasts in the past, this is no longer be the case beginning with the 2019 harvest.

We are the only cidery in Virginia to adhere to these natural methods, and one of a select few to do so on the east coast. We also grow heirloom cider apples with little intervention, using only minimal organic sprays and holistic methods to grow our fruit.. As we wait for our orchard to mature, we source all of our apples locally.
