We had a wonderful lunch here. There were 6 of us and all enjoyed the food. Really liked the soup. If your visiting would highly recomend you stop here. We had a slight wait as the place was full. Well worth the wait though. Will be coming back again for sure.

The staff in the wine tasting room are very professional and knowledgeable about show casing their wonderful wines as well as the history of their winery. They are proud of their wine and definitely make you feel at home. We never feel rushed and always feel welcomed. So... More

This was our third and longest stop on a 6 winery tour hosed by Dino of Grape Escapes. In addition to the winery tour, this was our pre-planned lunch stop. Hillside offers a large dinning area, but we opted to enjoy the fabulous weather on the patio. The menu offered a good selection for a light lunch. Sharon went with... More

If you visit Hillside's tasting room, avoid Charlotte, as she clearly does not enjoy her job, and is doing a disservice to this otherwise pleasant winery.

We came to wine taste and also booked for dinner, we dined on the patio with amazing views and even better sunset, the food was excellent as well and the desserts to die for. I would certainly recommend the Hillside winery for lunch dinner, make sure and book the patio, service was very good, could not fault it.
