ALEXANDRIA, VA. — Virginia Cider Company has proposed a cider production facility and tasting room in Alexandria called Lost Boy Cider. The company submitted a special use permit application for 317 Hooffs Run Drive in the Carlyle area. The Alexandria Planning Commission will consider the proposal at its Dec. 4 meeting.

In the application, the company states that it wants to follow the model of Port City Brewing Company to produce, package and sell products on site. Lost Boy Cider plans to make wine from juice harvested from its farm in southern Virginia after it goes through fermentation vessels. It would then be filtered pasteurized, put into containers and distributed.

The business's tasting room would allow customers to sample products or buy packaged items.

"Our goal is to create fine wine and cider and grow into a leading mid-Atlantic/regional presence in the wine community via distribution channels," reads the application.

Proposed production hours are 7 a.m.-5 p.m. on weekdays. The tasting room hours would be 4 p.m.-9 p.m. Monday to Thursday, 4 p.m.-10 p.m. Friday and noon-10 p.m. on weekends.
