About Hill Family Estate

Hill Family Estate's salon-styled tasting room is located in downtown Yountville, in the heart of Napa Valley. We offer a relaxed, welcoming setting to showcase our small-production wines, hand-crafted from the vineyards we farm throughout the valley.

Read More

After four decades of farming grapes for some of Napa Valley's finest wine producers, third-generation farmer Doug Hill and his family decided that they 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 while his son Ryan runs the sales division, working hard to get Hill Family Estate wines placed in select accounts for you to enjoy. Ryan's sister Carly lives and works in San Diego and hosts tastings and dinners in Southern California while matriarch Darci can be found at the tasting room 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.
Our salon-styled tasting room is located in downtown Yountville, in the heart of Napa Valley. It offers a relaxed, welcoming setting amid eclectic décor such as a Fender electric guitar, antique furniture, a surfboard, and baseball bats stained with a Hill Family red wine stain.

Hill Family Estates is one of the most special little gems in the Valley. Not only are they set in the heart of the beautiful town of Yountville, the wines they make exceed the reputation that this region has to offer. Along with the wine, the staff there are the most welcoming and kind people who are just a joy to experience wine with. This place is definitely worth a stop!

We would have loved to go on the cruise but it conflicts with another trip (darn!) Please let us know more about offerings you put together for your members. We had a great time lounging in the comfy couch on Friday!

Great discussion of the wines and we were offered tastings of wines off the set menu. We came at an off-time at the end of a weekday and still were treated with some of best customer service I’ve had at any winery tasting room.

Staff is very knowledgeable. A reservation is recommended to get good seating and more attention. Price is reasonable especially if you join the wine club or buy a good bit of wine. Their website is a bit wonky and it's hard to tell when they are offering the secret garden tour. I recommend calling before trying to book that.
