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

My husband and I visited Furnace Brook Winery this past weekend while on a little getaway to the Berkshires. We love wine tasting, so when we saw that there was a winery not too far from where we were staying we knew we had to visit. Furnace Brook offers one taste of any of their wine for free--how can you... More

I am writing about Hilltop as a Cross-Country ski center. Of course, it is nice that the lodge is also a winery, where you can get snacks, hot beverages, baked goods; you can also engage in wine tasting. The lodge also has a couple of couches and a fire place. The trails are well groomed and start in the apple... More

we stopped by on a frigid December weekday..the fire was going, and the staff was pleasant. my fiance did enjoy and bought a bottle of Riesling. We spent some time browsing the various products on display. It is somewhat misleading...one tasting is free, any more is a dollar a taste. Misleading but reasonable nevertheless
