My friends and I stopped for a tasting and take some pictures. Plenty of parking in the parking lot, beautiful garden and tasting room. Staff informative. Wines are just ok none warranted us buying any like so many more of the other places we did.

What a very pleasant experience. The people were so nice and warm. The staff was willing to show and explain about the wine with a smile. We spent most of the evening there, we had a nice lunch and left with great memories.

We tasted the wines at Hillside Winery on Saturday as one of our first stops on the Naramata Bench. The property is absolutely stunning, with beautiful flowers and a rustic and inviting wine shop and bistro. Both Hillside's whites that were on the tasting were...More

Went for a tasting and there was a blatant disregard for proper service. The women running the tasting bar seemed more interested in entertaining their friends then serving paying customers. We waited up to 10 minutes to be acknowledged between samples, I was highly disappointed....More

Went for a tasting - very impressed. Hillside's tasting room doesn't have the floor-to-ceiling lake views that some of the other wineries have, but the wines were great and the staff was friendly and knowledgeable.
