Grafting Workshop
Grafting Workshop

Since apples do not reproduce true from seed, propagation depends on grafting the desired variety onto a reliable rootstock.   Expert hands-on instruction by the Vintage Virginia Apples staff will introduce you to the fine art of grafting.  Each participant will graft two trees from a choice of scionwood from the Vintage Virginia Apples collection to take home with them, along with a copy of our grafting handbook. Extra rootstock and scion will be available for sale after this workshop. 

If you have them, feel free to bring a pair of handheld pruners and a grafting knife- please make sure they are sharp!  If you do not have these tools, there will be several available during the class to practice with or you can purchase your own when you arrive.

Cancellation Policy:  For refund, cancellations must be received 10 days prior to event.

9:00 am to 12:00 pm
 
Live Music in the Orchard: Tara Mills
Live Music in the Orchard: Tara Mills

Join us in the Orchard room for live Music & Cider.

Inspired by the Blue Ridge Mountains and the rich musical traditions tied to them, Tara Mills describes her music as, "original mountain americana;" an original blend of folk, bluegrass, and americana. Writing and singing most of her life, it wasn't long before Tara picked up a guitar and taught herself how to express the melodies in her head through her songs and hauntingly beautiful lyrics. Influenced by bluegrass, old country, and traditional mountain folk, she creates an original sound that captures true human feeling and emotion. Based out of Charlottesville, VA, Tara plays and writes in a couple of different musical projects.

Harrison Vertical Tasting
Harrison Vertical Tasting

March is welcoming in our newest yeild of Harrison Cider, and to celebrate we are giving you the chance to try vintages from years past.

Once the most celebrated cider apple of the 1800s, the Harrison was nearly driven to extinction during Prohibition. Reclaimed from near eradication, it is now once again a hero of the cider industry. 

The Harrison's story of resilience over the last 200 years isn't the only fascinating thing about it. While the apple constantly yields a superior cider, the tasting notes vary widely harvest to harvest. We experience this phenomenon every year at the CiderWorks. Though many of our Harrisons have won awards, they each are unique flavors from one another. 

Join us on March 23rd for an after-hours event as we pull Harrisons from years past from our library and introduce our newest release for a vertical tasting of Harrison. We will be comparing 4 years of the Harrison Cider, ciders made from one of the most interesting apples in the industry.

Please Purchase Tickets here.
