We had a great time. We loved the fireplace and the tasting bar. The bar is a beautiful thick piece of wood. We sat on logs for our tasting. The wines are delicious. They have a lot of varieties as well as hard ciders. The Manager was friendly and informative. We purchased libations and apple cider donuts on our way... More

On a day trip to Stockbridge, we had a couple of hours after going to the Norman Rockwell Museum and checking out the stores in Stockbridge, and before our dinner reservations. So we went for a drive. When we saw the winery, we decided to stop. While we had empty stomachs, we decided to split one set of tastings, trying... More

This is the only wine tasting ever where I liked them all. Such a pleasure to just take time and feel no pressure. The setting is very rural. Apparently they are open all year round with the orchard, wine making, their own beer, and cross country skiing in the winter. What a well run business!

A group of 22 planned a stop at the winery. Called far enough ahead and asked if they could prepare a lunch for us and they did. It was amazing! One of the owners greeted us and we sat in the wine tasting room with a warm fire blazing. He gave us the history of the winery and a little... More

Lots of yummy choices here at the winery. The wine was all very reasonably priced as were the baked goods and other food and home products. The winery also has hiking trails and tastings are free if you are staying at Garden Gables.
