“One of Penticton BC's best Wineries & Bistros”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2013

I had heard about this winery before and that it was one of the best in the area—so we made sure it was on our list of must visits. The estate was very pleasing to the eye with beautiful flower gardens and row upon row of vines looking out over beautiful Okanagan Lake. And the day was a perfect one with pleasant weather and blue skies. We were quite impressed with the wines featured in our tastings—many satisfied our taste expectations. We decided to have lunch in the bistro. Sadly, they had sold out of the duck which we were told was fabulous. So we chose a light lunch of squash soup and a lovely beet salad. Lunch was excellent and adequate. We chose not to do any more tastings after lunch as we had more driving to do. We recommend visiting Hillside on your trip and we are certain to visit the Winery again on our next trip through the wonderful Okanagan.

Food and Service gone way downhill - Still hungry when we left and was way way too expensive for the glass of wine!

“Beautiful setting, nice wine...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2012

I quite liked the stop at Hillside. It is a beautiful quaint building, with stunning flowers surrounding the barn style tasting room. The staff are very friendly, happy to serve you, and really make you feel at home. I recommend the stop on your tour of the Naramata Bench!

“Best CHEESE and fruit plate!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2012

Loved the homey, darker room for wine tasting, very nice setting with the wine displayed. Gorgeous view with the sun setting on the tower of the winery, had wine and apps on the patio..
The fruit and cheese plate was to die for. Service was excellent .This winery felt more genuine and not as touristy as saw the dirty laundry teasing room.
