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

We stopped at the Furnace Brook Winery on a snowy afternoon in mid-April while touring the Berkshires. The wines were very good, especially their apple ice wine which was amazing. There were very good hard ciders as well. The host was very knowledegable about all of the wines and gave us a great explanation about the process they follow to... More

Groomed xc ski trails were perfect. We chose to snowshoe because we had them with us, but you can rent skis or snowshoes. The wine was fantastic. Great day!

We visited Hilltop for the cross country skiing and snowshoeing and had a great time! The trails were in great shape and offer enough variety for beginners like us or more advanced skiers. You're in for lovely mountain views as well as trails through pristine woods. Make sure to leave yourself time to enjoy cider, donuts, wine, or chili by... More
