I see a trend here... Everyone's wine "guy" or "gal" was the best ever. KEV takes the win, though. He was funny, knowledgeable, and just really made our experience great. The wines helped.
Hillside is just one of the stops on the Wine Tour by Rocky Top. Make sure you get one of their cards. I suggest starting at one of the other wineries though (Mountain Valley, Sugarland, Apple Barn) first, and making this one your third stop. On the tour, once you hit the third winery, you get a free wine glass. We ended up with glasses from Kev at Hillside for another reason, but were looking forward to completing our collection when we made our third winery stop, which was at Mountain Valley. We got our glasses at MV, but they were different (smaller, not as nice). Whatever -free is free and we weren't really in it for the glasses.
Back to Hillside... they have a really nice selection and had everything in stock too. That's helpful. I lean towards sweeter wines while my hubby likes the dry ones. They had ones we both could enjoy. We ended up leaving there with $100 in wine between the four of us (travelling with my parents), which I think just illustrates the awesome job Kev did.
Oh - VETS - be sure to ask for your discount. With the discount, we ended up getting six wines for $10.49 each. Amazing!
