Not only does the tasting room exude charm, the staff here, specifically Rebecca and Mary, are superb-knowledgeable, super pleasant, and they clearly love being there. Oh, and the wine is fabulous! We especially enjoyed the Mouseaux and extended our visit enjoying a bottle on the...More

If you like DRY WINES this is your place. This place wasn't on my map. I informed that to Mary Anne and she said that's because everyone that's in the map pays to be on the map. They are a small winery that only produces...More

We visited their tasting room that is right next to Rose Hill Mansion. The tasting was free when you visit the mansion - so quite a deal for 5 tastings. They specialize in dry wines. We liked the chardonnay - which was not "oakey" at...More

Thank you so much Diane. We appreciate the positive review. Our Chardonnay is only lightly oaked (about 20% of this wine spends time in older oak barrels). Thanks for stopping by our Rose Hill Mansion seasonal tasting room. Our main tasting room is on Rte...More

Dry Rose is a real treat as is the Dry Riesling and Sauvignon Blanc . Best explanation of their wines aim a very homey setting. A must visit for the region.

I've done a couple tours in the area and Billsboro winery feels unlike any of the others. It feels less industrial, touristy, or large scale. It feel like you're being welcomed into someone's home. The wines are some of the best i've had. 11/10 would...More
