Hilltop Orchards is a historic apple orchard set on 200 picturesque acres in the beautiful Berkshire hills of western Massachusetts. It is also home to the region's first farm winery. Furnace Brook Winery (named for the stream originating on the property) produces 16 award-winning wines including the Johnny Mash hard cider made from the orchard's Northern Spy and McIntosh apples. The Riesling, Chardonnay, Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon are some of the varietals that have won awards at the Big E Northeast Wine Competitions. Stop by for a free wine tasting, shop the Farm Winery Store for fresh baked goods and homemade preserves. Relax outside in the Gazebo or inside by the fireplace in the Barrel Room.
In addition to apple picking and hayrides in the fall, visitors enjoy cross country skiing and snowshoeing in the winter and hiking almost year-round. Full moon hikes/snowshoe treks are scheduled monthly, weather permitting.
The Vittori also owns the beautiful Garden Gables Inn set on five private acres in the heart of Lenox Village. Guests ski free plus have extended free wine tasting privileges. Visit www.gardengablesinn.com for more details.
