After three decades of farming grapes for some of Napa Valley's finest wine...

After three decades of farming grapes for some of Napa Valley's finest wine producers, Doug and the family decided that their family should enter the wine business. Hill Family Estate was born out of the desire for the family to work together - sharing the experience of crafting fine wines that showcased the grapes that Doug farmed and then introducing those wines to the consumer at a tasting room in their hometown, and American foodie capital, Yountville, California. Doug farms the grapes and helps craft the wine and Ryan runs the sales division, working hard to get the Hill Family Estate wines placed in select accounts for you to enjoy. Carly lives and works in San Diego and hosts tastings and dinners in Southern California while Darci can be found at the tasting room, with Jack (the dog) by her side, tending to the flowers and enhancing our curb appeal. Hill Family Estate is the culmination of Doug's vision - a way to share his love of the valley, of farming and of wine with his children and wine lovers everywhere.

My husband and I absolutely loved our wine pairing at Hill Family. Our host, Devin, was so nice, informed and personable. We loved trying all of the different fruits and vegetables grown in the Hill family garden with the wines. It was amazing how much the wine would change. We cannot wait to visit again.

Our first tasting while taking in Main Street Yountville on a lazy Saturday morning. We were the first people in the place which slowly filled up with groups coming in for tastings. We were initially intrigued to try an Albariño which are almost always from Spain then on to some really excellent reds of various varietals. We were served by... More

This was the 3rd stop on our Platypus tour. Not my fave of the 4 we went to, but the other members in our party loved them. We tried a Albarino, Chardonnay, Pinot and Cab.

If you are staying in Yountville or driving through, you must stop and taste the Hill Estate wine. Bill gave us wonderful history of the estate. Also he asked us first about our general preferences. Bill had a very friendly approach to giving us insight behind every tasting. Each glass was excellent! Hill Estate offers a lovely and intimate ambiance.... More

We dropped in for a quick tasting with Arriana (?Spelling) and she was great. She had only been in Napa for a few weeks but she was very knowledgeable. The wines were pretty good and the ambiance/decor was very interesting. I recommend this place. It's very nice.

So happy we went here on our first day of tasting. Our host Bill taught us so much about wine. He handled our group of 6 ladies like a champ. Good wine: loved the sauvignon blanc and rose'. We had a blast- thanks so much!

What a difference to our previous wine tasting .....Young friendly girl that served us made us feel real at home .......Good insight into their wines and she took the time to work out what we were after . Generous on the pours and no sales pitch needed which resulted in us walking out the door with 9 fantastic bottles of... More

Our friend who lived locally told us about this boutique winery in the town of Yountville, It was very quaint & the vintner was friendly. We really like the wines and the gift shop

Some cute home decor items. Of all the places to go in Napa I was irritated that we wasted our time in here. The wine was ok. The older lady and older gent working the tastings were the least enthusiastic of all the places we visited. They didn't tell us squat about the winery or the wine. There was another... More

Met Bill Miller at the Brian Culbertson Jazz Getaway 2016 at the Westin during the Wine Down. What a great representative for the company. Not only did he introduce the Nectar of the Gods (NOTG) with enthusiasm, but he made the wine tasting experience unforgettable. I bought 6 bottles just because of him and his salesmanship. If you get a... More
