About the instructor:
Charlotte has worn many hats over the years, often simultaneously, and acting as the CEO of Vintage Virginia Apples and Albemarle CiderWorks hasn't changed any of that. Charlotte has career backgrounds in both academics and the finance industry, both of which serve her well at Albemarle CiderWorks. 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.
