Went to do some wine tasting. Don’t bother the woman walked off and went outback, left us to fend for ourselves, never gave us a chance to ask for a tasting. We left and she was still out back somewhere.

If you are visiting the Berkshire mountain area you need to stop at this winery. It's actually an orchard where you can pick your own apple and taste their own ciders and wine. Great value tastings and pleasant relaxed atmosphere. Staff are very friendly and...More

Spent the weekend in the Berkshires. My friend had been here before and insisted we go there both mornings for the donuts right as they were made. Hot and delicious! Saturday morning we had to wait a little while, as they weren't open when we...More

Wines are made from CA and NY grapes. Mead and apple wines are made from local ingredients. Apple Cider Donuts are delicious.
