ALBEMARLE COUNTY, Va. (CBS19 NEWS) --- Thursday marked the first Carter Mountain Sunset Series of 2023.

From now until Sept. 28, people can enjoy live music, food trucks, Bold Rock hard cider, Carter Mountain wine, and a beautiful sunset.

This year, Carter Mountain decided to start the series a bit earlier than normal.

"We are so excited about it. It's one of our favorite events of the year. Clearly, the community loves it as well, said Cynthia Chilesm a Carter Mountain family owner. "Typically, we start it at the beginning of May. Back in January, we decided we would bump it up a little bit and April you never know about weather but the response about coming out a little bit earlier in the year has been fantastic." 

Chiles says Carter Mountain Orchards has been a family-owned business for 110 years. The property has been open to the public for 40.
