We had stopped at a few other wineries after leaving Giant City lodge and restaurant.

I rated Kite Hill a 4 only because there isn’t a ramp into the tasting room for handicap people. The owner was very helpful in helping us pick out a few wines to try. Even offered to bring our wine out to the car since my wife couldn’t climb the stairs

We tried the Aquila and the white Kite (we prefer riesling to reds), both were good.

These vineyards have small tasting rooms and don’t provide cooking food to order so you need to bring a picnic lunch.

The wine is not very good. The wine tasting is pretty expensive. Every where else we went, the tastings were $1 each or 4 tastes for $5. Kite Hill was expensive and there was nothing I wanted to buy.

We did a tasting of all the wine. Our service was good. However all the wines tasted very watered down.

this was the first stop on our wine trail. It's a quaint little shop with a outside porch with tables. The staff was nice and informative. The wines were very good. They had a frozen slush wines which were very tasty. Our group bought a lot of wine at this stop.

This was our last stop on the wine trails. It was a great ending to our experience. The man working was very friendly and welcomed us. The wine slushies were a perfect treat on a hot day. The view off the covered deck was delightful. Visit on your next wine trail trip!

We stopped in for a tasting and since it wasn't busy, the owner sat down and told us all about the operation. They put a lot of effort in the quality of their wine instead of turning out big batches. Even still, there is a good variety and wines seem to be above most of the other wineries in the area.

Surprised that Kite Hill Winery’s tasting room was so small. However, if weather permits there is outdoor seating on the deck overlooking the pond. Service was good. The frozen peach Bellini was very good and I did like the wine White Kite.

My wife and I had the pleasure of staying at Kite Hill BnB while touring the wine trail near Carbondale. The winery was quaint, the owners take the time to meet you with a smile, and the wines are wonderful. Although we stayed there the owners encouraged us to visit the other wineries with nothing but positve things to say about each. The BnB is located in the heart of the wine trail, yet close to many wonderful restaurants to relax at in the evening, or you can just relax on the porch and watch the hummingbirds or stare at the stars at night. We only got to visit half of the wineries on the trail this trip, but we will see the others next trip when we revisit Kite Hill Vineyards and BnB. Thanks for making our anniversary so special.

The wine slushies here are phenomenal! We actually bought a kit of the peach bellini because it was so darn good. Would definitely recommend this winery because of the slushies. Jim was the owner here and he was very nice and informative. Smaller winery, but worth a visit!
