Hill Top Berry Farm & Winery

Hill Top Berry Farm & Winery Nestled at the foot of Wintergreen Resort and atop the rolling hills of the Rockfish Valley, sits Hill Top Berry Farm & Winery. Originally opened as a pick-your-own blackberry farm, the family owned and operated business expanded into a winery in the late 1990's. Owners, Marlyn and Sue Allen, were at the forefront of what is now a budding industry by being one of the first wineries in Virginia to offer specialty wines. The operation has grown to include not only a new line of historical wines, but a new generation of help. Three sisters, Kimberly Allen Pugh, Crystal Allen Wulin, and Marlo Gayle Allen, are welcome additions to the ever-growing family operation. Soon to expand and offer both indoor and outdoor meeting facilities, Hill Top promises to never outgrow its family roots and southern hospitality.
