Very laid back and relaxing atmosphere. The owner and workers are very friendly. The warm fresh made apple cider donuts ARE THE BEST!!!

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.

We stopped here three weeks ago while on honeymoon to do some wine tasting. We were pleased enough with our wine and hard cider tasting experience to purchase product to be shipped home. That is where our experience soured. No goods have been shipped. No refund has been issued. No one from the company has ever contact us to indicate... More

My boyfriend and I stopped in on a weekday to do a wine tasting. No one else was there when we arrived and I felt like we were bothering the staff by asking for the tasting. When the staff person reached for something at the bar, a cloud of fruit flies came up, and we had to keep swatting them... More

It was a rainy day so we were unable to walk around the grounds that are supposed to be beautiful. We went in for a wine tasting and tasted 5 wines. A little disappointed they were sold out of their cab but the tasting was nice. Fair variety of tasteful wines. Something for everyone.

We went Sunday and enjoyed a great stroll around the grounds. My boys started an apple war, with rotten apples flying everywhere, and they loved it. We got some cider, and cider donuts but didn't get to sample any wine cause the lines were just crazy long. Still a wonderful time.

What a great place to visit in a sunny fall day. Hot spicy cider and fresh homemade donuts. Yummy! Near Pittsfield and Richmond, it is a wonderful place to bring your kids and pick crunchy, juicy apples.

We had a fun time with the cider "flight" that led to several purchases. The young lady tasting expert was very well informed and helpful. Looking forward to enjoying our purchases in front of a roaring fire on a cold night!
