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. « less

We didn't officially do a tasting here, but made a stop to see the view - well worth it! They even offered us a taste while we were there. Very gracious!

It was the end of the day and we almost decided to skip this vineyard. I am glad we ended up going, as it turned out to be one of our favorites in Napa. The views are excellent. There are multiple shaded adirondack chairs to kick back and take in the views while being served tastings of wine. We really... More

I spent an evening here for a benefit concert and dinner and then the next day for a private tour with one of the wine experts on staff. The grounds are absolutely beautiful. The staff is 5 star all the way. Their wine is great and has different price points. Don't worry if you are visiting from out of state... More

This is a must if your a wine lover. You need to make reservations but it's well worth it. The wine is amazing and the view is spectacular. We had a wonderful tasting out on the patio with a very informative young woman ( wish I could remember her name).

Gorgeous vineyard. More of a hands off experience where they just let you enjoy the view and relax while tasting delicious wines. Definitely recommended!

This place was gorgeous...It was everything you would want and expect in a Napa Valley vinyard. Rolling vine covered hills with shady enclaves to sit and drink beautiful wines. The wine prices were also extremely reasonable for the area. I beleive a bottle was $15-$30 depending on the bottle. Only downside was the tour itself. It was a self-guided I-pod... More

My wife and I discovered this winery while looking for things to do in Napa. During the summer, they have a monthly Sunset Picnic from 5:30-8:30pm. Open to club members AND the public, we made a reservation and made plans for a picnic. We arrived early, but they were already prepared as we were greeted by a hostess and offered... More

I was looking for a scenic vineyard not too far off the highway that would allow us to bring picnic food. William Hill was perfect. We went on a Tuesday morning, so we were the only ones there for most of our tasting. They have chairs and small tables overlooking the vineyards that are perfect for picnics. While we ate... More

This winery was a beautiful setting, the tastings must be arranged in advance but it is well worth it and the wine was divine. The olive oil was the best I have ever tasted, loved the stories behind the winery and the attention to running the winery green.

This was my groups first stop for the day (we made it to four wineries that day). Since it was the weekend before Memorial Day weekend we did not anticipate too many crowds overall, however when we arrived at this winery we were told that reservations were required in order to do a full wine tasting. I did see several... More
