Our host for the wine tasting was Robert Hirt. He was very knowledgeable about all the wines we tasted, and when we told him we were doing the wine trail he even suggested some wines at the other wineries for us to try. I definitely recommend the tasting and tour. The tour was also very interesting.

Staff is knowledgable, tour was short but good, wine was very nice. All 5 wineries in the area are owned by the same person but all 5 have different characteristics. This winery is the only one that has Italian style wine.

Everything was smooth and delicious. They have an assortment of sweet, semi sweet and dry. I'm not a big fan of dry wines but these were good. All grapes are from the local area so you are guaranteed something unique. Price was reasonable.

This is a beautiful winery and the wines are excellent. Make sure you ask if Robert is working! He was in charge of our FREE tastings. Nice and funny guy!

Ken was our wine tour guide. He really knows his wines and loves his work. You get to know a little more about Hillside Winery when you take the tour. Leisa, hope I spelled it right, was our wine hostess. She was wonderful. My wife and I sampled many of the sweet and semi-sweet wines. She also suggested the Wine Freezers which we loved. So, we ended up with 6 bottles of wine and 3 freezers. The wife and I can't wait to go back next year for new flavors. Thanks again and see you next year
