City Select has had a permanent display at Chiles Peach Orchard since 2008. Set at the base of the Blue Ridge Mountains, Chiles is a Charlottesville tradition and a favorite with visitors and locals alike. This site is very busy on weekends starting in late March with strawberries, then peaches and finally apples and pumpkins in the fall. As this tradition has grown, the facility, staff and offerings have expanded along with their popularity. Our City Select display of brochures, guides and menus is prominently positioned between vine ripened peaches on the left and yummy peach frozen yogurt on the right. Who can decide?
This year Chiles has added a wine tasting venue featuring Prince Michel Vineyard wines, and a cider tasting experience with Bold Rock Hard Cider. Both Bold Rock and Prince Michel are related to Chiles Peach Orchard, and sister site, Carter Mountain Orchard, in that grapes and apples grown here are used to make wine and hard cider. So when you visit either orchard, the tasting rooms are really the end result of what is growing right next to you in the fields! The Farm Market is chock full of local goodies like freshly picked fruit, vegetables, honey, jams, baked goods and even crafts.
Chiles Peach Orchard is a fantastic attraction that brings in visitors from all parts of Virginia and beyond. Our display of featured menus, attractions and maps & guides provide a wealth of resources to encourage more frequent visitation and to explore more!
