One of the owners served our wine for a wine tasting, and she was very knowledgable about the wines and how they are made. She also gave us many more samples than the five we paid for. The wines were excellent, and the staff were very friendly! Great prices too: first sample is free, and then 5 more for $5 or all the wines for $11. Must see!

Going through the Mohawk Trial was was a beautiful experience on its own but in Lenox, we discovered there were wineries in the vecinity. We picked Furnace Brook because it was the closest and were not disappointed. Beautiful landscape and charming, funny Ms. Grace Daly made our visit special. We shall return.
BTW: live music by Todd was outstanding.

We really enjoyed our visit to this winery, and the wine tasting was non-pretentious and extensive (taste 6 wines for $5). We all found something we liked (many of our group of 8 found more than one wine to purchase), and the staff was friendly and knowledgeable.

Welcome to my first Massachusetts tasting experience! Since coming to New Hampshire from Washington in February, I've sampled local vintages in the Granite State, as well as Maine and Vermont. But the promise of spending Independence Day weekend ...
