Owner description: 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.

We were so pleased with this winery. We sat in the adirondack chairs overlooking the vineyards and slowly enjoyed the wine (which was brought to us outside). It was a gorgeous fall afternoon and not too many people there. This is not a "bar" atmosphere which we encountered in much of Napa. Kudos to William Hill for doing it right!... More

This is a really pretty spot and we had a beautiful visit. I really recommend the self-guided tour and the chance to walk the grounds and take in the beautiful views. The wine was yummy. We sat outside on a warm Fall day for the tasting. Would recommend taking home a bottle of the Bench Blend Chardonnay for later (light... More

9/12/2014 - Toured William Hill as a guest of E&J Winery & Community Spirits Liquor (Indianapolis) After tasting several wines, we were treated to a wonder lunch, a lively presentation from Jan Wall from Barefoot Wine & Bubbly - absolutely loved the Peach Bubbly. The property is beautiful, and we were just in time for grape picking.

This was the first winery we visited in the Napa Valley. Very friendly & helpful staff, let us share a tasting (I don't like to drink a lot). Beautiful view & lovely wines as well.

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.
