We went there and Sara was so friendly and helpful. It was our last stop before leaving town and she made it a great experience. The wine tasting was very good and she was very knowledgeable about the area and the wines. Would definitely recommend!!

So we've been here before, and like to do the wine trail on our vacations. Some are better than others. But this trip it's changed a bit... so the samples are now limited to 4. I'm not sure when or why this changed but it's something that makes no sense. When you sell 10 wines and people who have been... More

Very nice winery with good variety. But the lady that helped us, Krisenda, was amazing. She was very knowledgeable of the wines, knows what to recommend wines based on what we liked, and was just a hoot! She introduced part of our party to belinis, which they absolutely loved. I would highly recommend Krisenda if your planning on visiting Hillside... More

Recently stopped by hillside winery to sample the local wines and had such great service and suggestions from Sara that we decided to stay for a bit and do the leisure sampler with a cheese plate on the patio, the backdrop of the smokies made it even better.

This is a good place to relax and enjoy dry or sweet wines. The place is normally busy during the prime times so I go right when they open or 1 hour before closing. This is another local place I have visited over the years, multiple times per year, and have had nothing but a great time.

Thanks for your review Dustin! We are happy to see you any time of the day. If you get a chance to come in midday and have a glass of wine out on our porch, that is a great way to spend a day in the Smokies, too. More

We stopped here on our tour of pigeon forge wineries. I did the $5 tasting and you got to try all the wines. The raspberry blush was my favorite!!! Also tried the poinsettia and got a bottle of that. The service was fair. Not extremely nice or any knowledge much of the wine or the grapes used

After waiting about 30 minutes and being overlooked to do a wine tasting we decided to just leave. We did get one of the young ladies to stamp our Wine Trail cards. So all wasn't lost. We would've liked to have purchased some wine as we did purchase at least 3 bottles at all the other stops.
