This winery is part of the Rocky Top Wine Trail and that is basically the only reason we visited it. Wine was ok, nothing special. The worker sprayed my husband with wine while she was opening a bottle, did not like that all. Found a cute bear statue that we bought, but overall, terrible experience.

My husband and I went here after dinner tonight to do some wine tasting. Tastings are free and they have a nice tasting room. If you are military, you receive an additional 10% off of bottles. We were not overly impressed with the wine they had to offer. My husband and I both prefer dry or semi-dry wines and most... More

This was our first stop on the wine tour. We bought 2 different bubblies for our friends and dogsitter. For ourselves ALWAYs the Black and Blue, and we bought a couple bottles of Sangria. The staff was energetic, helpful, and fun Never disappoints.

Justin at Hillside did a great job on the tasting for my family! There were 8 of us tasting and he went through the wine list explaining the different blends and helping us figure out what we liked and didn't.

This was our second stop along the Rocky Top Wine Trail. Like Eagle Springs, Hillside was not difficult to find from the highway. Hillside stood out for me based on how we were welcomed by the staff. In fact, as soon as we arrived into the winery, we were invited to go on a tour of their production area. My... More

All of the winerys in the area are owned by the same company but have different wine. If you do the "wine trail" and visit all 5 they give you a bag that gets you 10% off all wine purchase.

My husband took me wine tasting for our anniversary so we decided to hit all five wineries on the wine trail in the Gatlinburg area. Hillside wasn't to bad but it didn't really stand out either. I did like the sparkling wines but be for warned you have to pay extra to try them $3 for one person or $5... More

This was right by our condo. Free samples are a plus. I purchased the Pinot grigio. It was very good. I brought a bottle home also. I wish I would have been able to take the tour but we were headed home. Friendly staff!
