William Hill Estate is renowned for crafting elegant Chardonnay, Cabernet...

William Hill Estate is renowned for crafting elegant Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Merlot wines due to its exceptional location just off the Silverado Trail in southern Napa Valley on the rolling hills of the Silverado Bench. William Hill founded this Estate Winery in 1978, purchasing 200 acres of which 140 acres are planted to vine. Once classic in style, winemaker Ralf Holdenried has successfully transitioned our wines to a more refined and sophisticated style with fruit intensity and layers of complexity. Ralf's innovative and progressive approach to grape growing and winemaking enhances the unique style of our Napa Valley wines.

Great wine, great views.

Just a little off the trail but worth it in my opinion. Just fantastic views and superb wine. I joined the club and am enjoying the wine at home here in the midwest.

Took my daughter here for her 25th birthday. The grounds are lovely with gorgeous views. It's kind of hard to get to, off the beaten path a bit and you need a reservation. I sought them out purposely because I love their wines. We served their 2004 Chardonnay at our wedding and have loved them ever since. A worthwhile stop... More

The entrance is nothing to boast about until you park your car and head towards the reception area. Stunning views, great service, excellent wine. We spent the entire day there.

William Hill almost had a permanent resident: I did not want to get up from their perfeclty placed adirondack chairs! We visited three tastings before William Hill, yet William Hill inspired us with relaxation and wines that fit the 4p hour. Ashley was an incredible help: she knew when to step in for more pours and descriptions, but she did... More

From the moment you park, with the staff greeting you at the door and view to die for while tasting. This is a must stop winery. Very nice outdoor area to enjoy wine tasting with a view and friends. Very quiet, super friendly staff and tasty chardonnay. I would highly recommend this winery to everyone!

We have friends who are members at William Hill and have stopped by many times both with and without them. The wines are very drinkable and reasonably priced and the staff welcoming. We love the location on the top of a small knoll with views over the valley from a variety of picnic tables. As members, you gain the option... More

We had a very enjoyable tasting here with some great wines to be tasted and staff with a lot to tell you about their brand and wine selection. The range of complimentary wine giftware was great and we enjoyed our tasting very much.

What an imaculate place. Clean, modern, and amazing. We toured the facility (niece in the wine business), and after tastings, came home and purchased more.

William Hill Estate Winery was absolutely amazing! What made me visit was how friendly and accommodating they were during our initial conversation. I love how the tour is self-paced with an iPod. One doesn't have to deal with a group. It was nice being alone. It made it really romantic. The view is amazing! I recommend tasting the 2013 Napa... More

A nice library and peaceful spot, with their reservations you know that you won't have a mad house Disney experience. Understanding more and more why more places require reservations, keeps the experience a relaxed adult day out while you enjoy some lovely wines. Williams Hill did not disappoint.
