Bold Rock has done an outstanding job of creating a new place to discover hard cider. Being able to taste a wide variety of their ciders that range from dry to fruity in a lovely outdoor environment that is very family friendly. There are picnic areas, a deck to sit and have lunch or a snack or in inclement weather... More

We visited early this spring and really enjoyed the atmosphere and view. We loved watching the bottles get filled and packed through the giant viewing window into the cidery. If I had a critique it would only be that I wish there was at least one non-cider option for those (like my husband) that don't enjoy cider, but honestly, it... More

The cider is excellent and they are always coming out with new seasonals. The cider house is beautiful, all wood, where you can sit and drink cider, read up on the history of cider and how it's made, see where the cider is made, and eat appetizers (and sometimes live music). They have indoor and outdoor tables (gorgeous scenery!). And... More

Bold Rock offers stunning views of Wintergreen, a ton of space for your dog to run and play, and delicious ciders! Bring the family and kids, grab a group of girlfriends, or make it a date night - this is the perfect spot for all of it. Do a tasting, grab some sandwiches, and make a day of it. They... More

My fiance and I came here, and they offered 2 free tastings. We also got a flight, and it was delicious! The ciders varied from dry to sweet. They had a nice variety, and they were all really good. My favorite was the wild cherry, it had a nice tart flavor. My fiance really liked the Ipa cider, it was... More

I was so excited to finally check this place out as it's one of my favorite ciders and the visit definitely did not disappoint. It was pretty crowded since there was a tasting event going on, but still really great service and fast moving lines. Really enjoyed being able to taste some of the different ciders that aren't available in... More

I loved the cider and food here. The variety was great and the bartenders did a good job at explaining the different types and how they were made. We even got to see where they made the cider. The reason this place is getting three stars is because we left a personal item there and when we realized this after... More

First off, I love Bold Rock ciders. Maybe my favorite alcoholic drink. Visiting Bold Rock is great too. The area is beautiful, and the tastings are so cheap. Additionally, when I was there, they had a free mini-tasting featuring some of the seasonal ciders. Plus, it's near several other breweries along 151, which makes for a great day or afternoon...
