We really enjoyed our visit to Hightower. Loved the Murray Syrah and it was at a great price. Good wines and fun hosts.

Hightower is one of the several small wineries on Red Mountain. They have a nice view and very friendly servers. The wines they were pouring in August were fine but did not excel.

We had a large group, which I know can be annoying for tasting room employees, but the two ladies at Hightower handled it with ease. They mingled and moved throughout the room helping our large group as well as three other smaller groups. They gave as much or as little info as people seemed to want. The wine was great... More

Lovely people and wines that are clearly needing to mature. There's a nice patio to sit on and enjoy wine. Bring your own snacks though.

This winery has a very small tasting room, but very cute. Has a small patio area that looks out to the vineyard. The lady was very friendly and knowledgeable, made our experience fun. We walked through the barrel room. We didn't particularly like the merlot, however, we found that the 2010 cabernet to be nice, but really enjoyed the Red... More

My girlfriend and I visited the tasting room (among others in the area!) and had a great time here. The wine was great and it was only surpassed by the bread, which was quickly devoured. I give it 5 stars because there was an awesome dog there

The last time we visted Hightower Cellars was at least 6 years ago, when Murray, the previous winery dog before Riley, was there. Hightower have a couple of wines named after Murray. However, maybe with Murray's passing, so did the enthusiasm of the owners. The lady in the tasting room seemed confused at times, and when we went into their... More

Sitting on the patio, looking at unobstructed views of the Horse Heaven Hills type of terrain, and sipping some very nice wines ranks right up there. The wine tasting involved about 10 different wines, arranged in a logical order, with as much interpretation on each that you cared to have. You may also order by the glass, bottle, or case,...

Really cool building with an amazing view through a floor-to-ceiling panoramic window. The architecture is cool and they used eco-friendly building materials like reclaimed pieces of wine barrels. Most importantly, their wines were all pretty darn good, and extremely affordable. And the service was wonderful - very friendly and personal. We went on a Sunday afternoon in May and were... More
