Lots of yummy choices here at the winery. The wine was all very reasonably priced as were the baked goods and other food and home products. The winery also has hiking trails and tastings are free if you are staying at Garden Gables.

I ordered on November 5th and I've not received anything (today is December 10th) I emailed with no reply, I've called and have been... More

The moonlight walk was very nice. We arrived early and sat by the fire and watched the servers guzzle down glasses of wine while we were only offered apple cider that cost $1.50. By the time we got back from the walk, one server was so drunk she could barely stand. Unfriendly service except the walk guide.

The good news is that the apple cider donuts were perhaps the best I have ever had--moist, nice balance of sugar and cinnamon, and warm. Apple cider was decent. The wine tasting was not so good. Even thought the service was good (once we finally got some help) there were fruit flies everywhere in and around the glasses. Wine was... More

A friend and I have enjoyed two wine tastings at Furnace Brook - one in August, one in October. Tasting hosts were knowledgeable and personable (in August, we had the pleasure of the owner serving and discussing his wines). Quite a broad selection of wines and hard ciders - I especially enjoyed the Riesling and the Sparkling Moscato. Huge stone... More

If you want to sit outside and enjoy a great view with a wonderful cheese platter, this is your place. On a sunny day, the view is terrific and the apples are delightful. The wine is fair and you are a wine connoisseur, I would skip this stop for sure.

We found this wonderful orchard and winery from our timeshare. It was definitely worth going. The staff is all very friendly and helpful. We did pick your own apples and a short trail hike. The grounds are lovely and so peaceful. Heading inside we did the wine tasting. Megan helped us and she was sweet and very knowledgeable about the... More

First to arrive for the day we were promptly and warmly greeted. We literally tasted everything! Way too many to count, wines and ciders. Everything was amazing and the staff were great.
