“Great view, great wine”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 20, 2012

Hillsborough is one of my favorite vineyards in Virginia. The view of the rolling hills and vines are breathtaking. The wines are unique and delicious. When possible, try to go on an off day. You get the chance to talk to the staff about the wine maker and get much more indepth information about the wine and the winery. I also appreciate that the vineyard discourages large tour buses. It cuts down on the rowdy atmosphere that certain wineries have created. This is a must visit if you find yourself in Loudoun county.

“beautiful view”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 1, 2012

Amazing view from the vineyard. Wines are okay. We've done tastings here at the bar, but also had a tasting in the "dining" room. The pourer didn't stick around to talk about the wine, just put down a piece of paper in front of you with the explanation. Not very personal, and didn't find the hostess personable at all.

“Nice views but that's about it”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 5, 2012 via mobile

Did a tasting with my sister and did not enjoy the experience as our pourer was young, not professional and could not answer any of our questions about the wine. She did not once offer to go ask someone. We were suddenly crowded by a large group that came in and our pourer actually put this party's glasses around ours so we had people tending behind us and reaching between us to do the tasting. When we went to pay for our tastings she insisted she'd given us a bottle of wine and we had to stand there and explain that we'd never even walked away from the bar, lt alone got a bottle of wine, walked away, drank it and came back. She finally admitted she couldn't even remember what bottle she thought she gave us but that was they only reason they didn't insist we pay for a bottle. This was very disappointing as I'd driven past this place a number of times and had been looking forward to going for a while. I my go back again to give it a second chance but only with a group and I won't pay for a tasting.

“great wines, beautiful views”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 21, 2012

We had a free tasting from a local bed and breakfast. We showed up on a tuesday, with other b&b guests there also. Karen behind the bar, made each of us feel very welcome. Making us feel like we were all guests sipping wine in her living room. What a great experience. The wines were the best I have tasted in Loudoun County so far. Such a beautiful setting as well. We were treated so well (even with a free coupon) We bought a few bottles to take home, and look forward to visiting Hillsborough again when we are visiting the area again.
