If you have to drive a long way it is worth it to try the cider donuts. Great selection of local goods. Best donut I have had in years. You can see them being made and the smell is great.

It's such a quaint place I had six different wine tasting. My favorite was the Pinot. You can also buy apples and there wonderful donuts. The market is tiny and cute.

After a day of walking around on vacation, to go here and enjoy wine tasting and a view was great. We did the tasting and then all shared a glass of wine while sitting in the muskoka chairs was very good and throughly enjoyable.

What a gem in the woods! My wife and I were traveling through the Pittsfield area and stopped-in at the orchard for a wine tasting, but it became so much more. We were greeted by a most enthusiastic hostess, who was very pleasant and helpful without being pushy. She was a wealth of knowledge about the wines and made some... More

This place is just down the road from my new house. Imagine how excited I was to find out that I can pick apples, hang out in a comfortable chair, meet lots of people, entertain visiting kids, walk my dogs, and in the winter hit the nordic tracks. When the owner found out I was his new neighbor, he personally... More

We initially drove past the Orchard but turned around to check it out...we were glad we did! The apple orchard offered up a small store with cider donuts and even a wine tasting. The lady serving up the wine samples was a great hostess...she was a pleasure to speak with and most helpful. If you're in the area you should... More

Not only was the wine host knowledgeable and informative, the tasting was a lot of fun. And, all of their wines are really good. Hilltop Orchards also makes the very best apple cider donuts I've ever tasted.

We stopped here after visiting Naumkeag and walking around Lenox. It's a nice setting in an orchard. The first tasting(sip) is free and the next five are $5.00. You can't go wrong for the price but the tasting is just a sip. I found the wine to be on par with other local wineries we have visited. The reds are... More

We went during the day a very scenic ride down some old country roads. Sure it would be spectacular in fall. An Apple Orchard/Winery that offers an opportunity to sample some of their home made wines and hard cider, Four or 5 samples for just $5 and some friendly conversation from the bartenders made this an enjoyable visit.

This is truly a no-pressure tasting experience. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful When I expressed an interest in their ice wine, a young lady said she had to tell us that "it is our most expensive wine." It was delicious and it was $33 and we bought it (having paid more than three times that for ice wine... More
