Came here with girlfriends for wine tasting. Dave, our host, took a little while to warm up to us four feisty Bostonians, but we soon had him chatting with us. The tasting is a steal at $5 for 6 different tastes from a variation of whites, reds, and ciders. Definitely in the middle of nowhere but well worth it if... More

We had a wonderful time cross country skiing on the beautiful trails of Hilltop Orchards. Russ was very helpful in giving us ski tips and recommending certain trails based on our ability. After working our muscles, we enjoyed relaxing them with some tasty wines served by Sarah who was very friendly and knowledgeable of the wine and the area.

We went to the Hilltop Orchards to do a some snowshoeing through the orchards and surrounding forest as way to get outdoors during our western Massachusetts visit. We had fun snowshoeing through the forest trails with fresh snowfall from the night before. The real treat was waiting for us when we returned to the store; there was a warm fire,... More

This winery provides more than you would expect. First of all everyone is so friendly, from the owner to the employees to the deer! We went for both the wine tasting and the hiking trails. It was cold out and had been snowing, so we decided to walk first then warm up with some wine. The hike is bearable through... More

We stopped by to do a wine tasting and the place was very busy. Lots of people out for a nice fall day. The tasting area was not very big and was very crowded. Although their wines were good, the grapes came from Long Island so we very familiar with these grapes since they come from home.

What a gorgeous location right in the heart of the Berkshires! From the helpful, friendly and knowledgeable employees overseeing wine tasting to the lovely lady who talked us into the best cider donuts we've ever tasted, Hilltop Orchards is a must for those who really want to experience the charm and beauty of The Berkshires. I'd read about this place... More
