“Nice Setting”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2012

I've been going here for years and love the view; high on the hillside. The wine is merely good, so the large, pleasant tasting room with plenty of grounds makes up for any wow you're expecting in the wine. The seating throughout is old and uncomfortable so wear jeans for buffer. Except for Kerem the winemaker with an unmistakable attitude, the staff is cool. Great place for a group, and the lawn chairs facing a vineyard is perfect for being on your own or couples.

I loved the red wine. Beautiful scenery, fantastic staff. A little too many flies but hey they like wine too!

“Nice Setting, Tasting Menu Limited”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

Nice setting on a hillside overlooking rolling hills. However, the tasting menu was smaller than others and it was very quiet when we were there. Might be better to visit in warmer months when you can sit outside.

“relaxing”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2012

Courteous and friendly server. Liked one of the wines so wife and I bought two glasses and a wedge of cheese to savor on the patio, sitting in the afternoon sun and enjoying the beautiful view.

“Great view, great wine”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2012

Hillsborough is one of my favorite vineyards in Virginia. The view of the rolling hills and vines are breathtaking. The wines are unique and delicious. When possible, try to go on an off day. You get the chance to talk to the staff about the wine maker and get much more indepth information about the wine and the winery. I also appreciate that the vineyard discourages large tour buses. It cuts down on the rowdy atmosphere that certain wineries have created. This is a must visit if you find yourself in Loudoun county.
