Cool winery feel and friendly servers. Beautiful for a nice day with the lake view and good wine! The pizza oven is suppose to be delicious.

We visited Billsboro Winery last Sat and enjoyed our experience. The staff were friendly and knowledgeable and the wines were excellent, especially the Rieslings!

We appreciate the review Kim. We certainly agree that we have a terrific staff! We're pleased to hear you enjoyed the Rieslings, (we now make 4 different types...med-sweet, dry, barrel fermented, and now sparkling)! We hope to see you again soon.

Thanks for thumbs up on our Pinot Noir. Our winemaker has received many accolades for this particular varietal. For the first time this year, we will be releasing two 2014 vintages from two different single vineyards, Sawmill Creek and Leidenfrost. They are remarkably different despite...More
