Going through the Mohawk Trial was was a beautiful experience on its own but in Lenox, we discovered there were wineries in the vecinity. We picked Furnace Brook because it was the closest and were not disappointed. Beautiful landscape and charming, funny Ms. Grace Daly made our visit special. We shall return. BTW: live music by Todd was outstanding.

We really enjoyed our visit to this winery, and the wine tasting was non-pretentious and extensive (taste 6 wines for $5). We all found something we liked (many of our group of 8 found more than one wine to purchase), and the staff was friendly and knowledgeable.

Welcome to my first Massachusetts tasting experience! Since coming to New Hampshire from Washington in February, I've sampled local vintages in the Granite State, as well as Maine and Vermont. But the promise of spending Independence Day weekend ...

It started as a rainy day. We decided to do wine tasting. We met Rob. Awesome!!!! Patient and knowledgable. We decide to stay on after the tasting, sitting in the huge, comfy couches, in front of the huge fireplace. We get some cheese and crackers, and it's like home. Enter John, the owner. He was gracious and humble and oh,... More

Very small winery off the beaten path. They import the grapes for their wine and really focus on the ciders which were excellent. We ended up buying a case. They also have a mead that is very good. You also cannot leave the place without purchasing their apple cider donuts. If you like to hike they have hiking trails and... More

The owner has one of the best products I've had in a long time. Best Cider Doughnuts EVER!! Good wine and really good cider. My only complaint is parking. You're either on the grass or on the steep hill. Not easy for someone handicapped or just someone who can't clime a steep hill. Other than that's one of my favorite... More

Love going to this winery! We had my daughters bridal shower here and it was a wonderful event. Of course the wine was great, the food fabulous especially the burgers. Fun at the bonfire toasting huge marshmallows for smors! Great time

First people there on a rainy day. Wines were just taken out of cold storage so hadn't had a chance to breathe. Advertising is a bit misleading as only your first sample free and the next five are a dollar a piece which isn't bad but not free.. Friendly people, decent setting - great place I can imagine in the... More
