Balderdash Cellars 

Founded in 2011, Balderdash Cellars is a boutique winery located in the beautiful Berkshires of Western Massachusetts.

We focus on producing ultra-premium (wicked to New England folks) wines from grapes grown by world-class California vineyards. What about the name?? When we said we were starting a winery, everyone said that we were mad, obsessed, and should stick to buying wine (truthfully, it is much easier than making it) – but we answered, “Balderdash.” As we sought to name the winery, Balderdash just seemed to stick. It also seemed like a good way to describe the stories behind each wine…while generally accurate, there may be some tall tales. Christian and Donna Hanson Owners

Tasting Hours: Saturdays 1-5pm, please call to set up private/group tastings
