Nice wine with a view in a beautiful setting

I like wine, and it was a beautiful Sunday in late October. Dropped by for some wine tasting. The location is nice, for a minute I fooled myself thinking I am in California... read more

Came here for a tasting and they have two different kinds. The reserve tasting you have to sit at a table and serve you which is different then the typical tasting bar experience. The HV tasting us one you can stay at the bar for. Sitting down wasn't the greatest experience because once your wine was poured the server leaves... More

Really enjoyed my recent visit to "paint and sip" last month. Spacious inside and out, with live music, a bit of laughter and relaxed views all around, a Sunday afternoon at Hillsborough Vineyard seems worlds away! Enjoyed learning about the wine, sipping samples (VERY enjoyable variety!) and painting flowers on a sunny day. Servers are friendly and knowledgeable about this... More

The wines are just not that great. Very very nice people. Live music and a fun experience. Tasting pourer was very knowledgable and super enjoyable, we just weren't big fans of the wines. Three were ok and we bought two bottles to be polite.

Hillsborough has an awesome view and cool history behind the structure of the tasting room. The wines were not my favorite and we did not get a great explanation of them during the tasting. We did our tasting and moved on to the next winery. Also, no outside food or drink is allowed either inside or out. This is a... More

My wife and I first visited Hillsborough Winery in Sept 2013. It was a beautiful day. The scenery was great, There were only a handful of customers and the winery representative was very friendly. We loved the Ruby so much I joined there club. However, in 15 months I never felt as welcome as I did that first day. The... More

Reading the other Trip Advisor reviews - we had about the same. Hustled in and hustled out. Not a lot of explanations around the wine. Just a tasting, sign up for our wine club and out the door. Take a picnic, buy a bottle of their red and enjoy the scenery.

As a member of the wine club I felt it was time to recommend this wounderful stop off in Purcellville Va. Hillsborough Vineyard has some of the finest local wines I have tasted. What a pleasure it is to stop for the tastings and cheese while sitting on the patio taking in the most awesome view. Make a point t... More

As our very knowledgeable Tasting Barista pointed out, this is a boutique winery where the winemaker's focus is on quality, not quantity....and it shows! Every single wine was obviously handcrafted and carefully nurtured through the aging process. The Chardonnay is aged in acacia wood giving it a much more subtle wood note vs the often overpowering oak. All of the... More
