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.

“Good location, wines are OK”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2012

This was the last winery my husband and I stopped at during our stay in Napa Valley. The winery building and the surrounding vineyards are very picturesque, and it was nice to sit out on the veranda during our tasting, but we weren't impressed by the wines.

“Great Event”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2012

We had an event at the William Hill Winery and what a great location to have an event. It was a beautiful view unobstructed by other wineries or roads. The tasting room looks brand new and behind the wine serving counter is there the wine cellar. The grounds are incredible and a beautiful place to picnic. A must stop while in Napa.

“A great find”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2012

Our tour and tasting guide Alexis was very informative and engaging. Her thorough knowledge of the vineyard history, and wines was appreciated. She had a brix meter so we could see how the winemaker can tell when the grapes are ready to be picked. The Petit Verdot is an exclusive at this winery.

“Greatest view in Napa”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2012

I stopped by here since I was staying at the Silverado Resort on Atlas Peak Road. I was blown away by the view. Nothing could be better than sitting in those white lawn chairs, sipping Chardonnay, and seeing this view. While the wine tasting room is small the grounds are fabulous. And the wine is good too and not expensive. The staff was very friendly. The out of the way location away from HY 29 makes this a real find.

“Wounderfull”

This is a great winery. Every time I am in Napa I must stop by and get some of their Chardonnay. No matter what year it is is is EXCELLENT and a must have.
