Home > About Us > Our People > Charlotte Shelton

Charlotte has worn many hats over the years, often simultaneously, and acting as the CEO of Vintage Virginia Apples hasn't changed any of that.  The first born of the Shelton siblings, Charlotte has career backgrounds in both academics (history) and the finance industry, and both serve her well in her latest endeavor here.  As any visitor to the Albemarle CiderWorks tasting room will discover, cider enjoys a rich history with deep roots in both Europe and America, and it is Charlotte's special pleasure to educate our patrons about that history.  Additionally, Charlotte is the force behind planning and organizing workshops and special events, and exploring new avenues to enhance the production and enjoyment of our ciders.  As an avid cook, she is also the palate behind many of the suggested food pairings accompanying our cider tasting notes- check them out, she won't steer you wrong!

Role: 

Charlotte founded Vintage Virginia Apples with her brothers in 2000. She is the operating manager, handles workshops, marketing and administration.
