“wine made with TLC”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2013 via mobile

My wife and I always love visiting the local wineries wherever we go on vacation. Furnace brook is a small winery that's big on taste. If you love sweet wines, I suggest you try their honey mead and their apple ice wine

“Great experience all around from a fun and friendly staff.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2013

We had the most enjoyable time. We were very happy to read the "pets welcomed" greeting on the doorfront and we loved our cider donuts purchase (that we pop into our mouths heading back out)! The Hostess was very friendly and descriptive with each pour and the wine prices were very reasonable. Very affordable and fun stop. Highly recommend for an enjoyable, inexpensive "to do". We will stop again on our next Berkshires vacation.

“Wine and a fireplace...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

Just looking for something to do... stopped in to this little farm stand and was delighted to find fresh cheese, fruit, cider doughnuts and a wine tasting for the grownups! Our child sat by the fire and played on his iPad while we sampled wines and enjoyed the tasting. Such a nice experience.

“Who knew snowshoeing could be so much fun!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2013

Initially I thought that being dragged out in the snow by my over-zealous compainion, and being asked to don big, clunky footwear to boot, was going to be a day to forget. How surprised I was to find that stomping around in the snow was an enjoyable way to spend part of an afternoon. The trails were well maintained and easy for a novice showshoer to navigate. The wine tasting that followed was great. David, a very knowledgable and gracious host, paired the wineries ample selections with the orchard's own apples, locally made cheese, and freshly made cider doughnuts. Rounding out the afternoon, relaxing by the fire and enjoying some additional wine and cheese made this an afternoon I'd look forward to repeating. In a word, David and the orchard are "awesome".

“A magical place we found looking for a gas station!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2013

We stopped for directions and wound up at a tasting,, sitting by a cozy fire with my children sipping hot cocoa and our dog taking a nap by the fireplace! The wine is great and hospitality even warmer than the fire!!
