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

The William Hill Winery was a nice addition to any visit to Napa Wine Country. We enjoyed the walking tour by iPod through the vineyards and it is a must do if you show up and do the tasting. The tour takes about 20-25 minutes and it takes you through the different types of grapes and features in the vineyard... More

I really loved that you got to sit outside and enjoy the view while you had your tasting. The truffle popcorn and cheese was also a nice touch. FYI You need reservations here for a tasting.

Since we have been drinking William Hill Cabs for several years, my wife and I thought visiting the winery would be fun. It is a better experience than I had imagined. The wines are delicious and not as overpriced as many of the Napa Cabs. The staff were very friendly and helpful, without being overbearing. The best part of our... More

We've been to Napa plenty of times and took this on a friend's advice. One of the best parts about going here just getting to another little area we would not have seen without it. Take the time and drive just a few miles further up the hill past the turn for the winery. Some pretty beautiful views and homes... More

Lovely view indeed and yes, you can try some wine but I think the price was rather high to just "taste some wine" and on top of that you have to make a reservation - sorry, it does not sound more exclusive to me just because you have to book in advance. I felt slightly unwelcome, no passion, no real... More

Really nice views, you are on a hill and can see for miles. Wine was excellent and service was good. Pretty sure you need to make an appointment for this place.

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).
