About
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.

Lovely views, excellent chardonnay
Sep 2021
We enjoy William Hill wine in our home and were excited to visit the winery. We were not disappointed! First, the vineyard isn't located on 29, so the atmosphere is quieter and more personal. Vineyard views are stunning!

We made an appointment to taste 4 wines. We were also greeted with a welcome wine as well. Our tasting came with a snack paring of root vegetable chips, nuts, cheese and crackers with jam.

Darryl was our host and he was outstanding, sharing his excitement and knowledge about the industry and vineyard. My only feedback is our tasting menu and wine price list was incorrect. Darryl had to cross off a few selections and finally went inside to get the correct tasting menu and price list.

We purchased the Caneros Chardonnay and look forward to enjoying it in our home.

Had a wonderful tasting experience here. Enjoyed a beautiful view of the vineyards during the tasting. The pace and service were perfect ... and so was the wine.

I really liked this one. A beautiful, unpretentious winery in Napa. The wine was great and the hosts were welcoming, warm, and accommodating. This is a must visit when we are back in the area.

We Enjoyed Our Visit!
Nov 2020
While visiting Napa we made reservations at William Hill since we really enjoy their wines while at home. The interesting thing about visiting some familiar wineries is that they seem to distribute one line of wine, yet have so much more, smaller batches, etc when visiting. This particular winery actually didn’t seem to offer what we get from our local wine shop, but they offered so many more wines, that were of higher quality, as well as many more vintages and varietals, including library wines.

Our wine educator was very helpful and friendly, allowing us to taste everything we were interested in, which lead to him selling us a case and also having us sign up for a membership! They have a very knowledgeable staff there and they are very accommodating. The wine store has interesting souvenirs as well as very nice and clean restrooms. The view from the top of this hill, overlooking their massive vineyard was stunning too! Definitely can’t wait to return!

Very Nice Red Wines!!
Jan 2020
If your looking for nice place to taste good red wines William Hill Estate Winery is a great place to go. The view is amazing and it's very convenient if your staying in the town of Napa. The server we had was very knowledgeable about the wines he poured.

Very cold atmosphere
Oct 2019 • Friends
They changed the rules so you need a reservation for tasting
No more picnic or glass of wine outside the small designed area.
Beautiful view but no warm atmosphere or welcome....business attitude only
What a shame because the area is very nice

Beautiful Venue, Tasty Wine
Sep 2019
We heard about this from an online search for best views among wineries. We were not disappointed. The view was breathtaking. Staff was friendly and wine was very tasty. We bought 2 bottles. I would put this on a must see list of anyone touring wineries in Napa.

Perfect Beginning to a Wine Vacation
Jun 2019 • Friends
William Hill never fails to impress me, both with the wines, AND the scenery here. We had a tasting scheduled for 3:30 on our first day in the wine country, so, with the weather and gorgeous vineyard view, this was the perfect beginning to a perfect trip. We especially enjoyed the Petit Verdot in our tasting and bought a bottle for later. Thank you WH!!

Not so great...
Jun 2019 • Family
Plenty of wine options in Napa...thought this place would live up to or exceed others...it did not. Great views..and pretty good wine... service is the key in this industry and we were basically treated the same as we would be in a Wal-Mart...nothing wrong with that...but again, service is the key and this place lacks the right service touch as other places supply. Hope it was just the day I was there...
