Of the three wineries we visited, this was by far our favorite. Pours were generous, view was beautiful and Darryl was generous with his time and chatted with our family of four adults for quite some time. We loved hearing the history of William Hill and the area. We would definitely go back again and we are looking forward to receiving our first wine shipment in September.

RSVP required makes the tasting experience more relaxed and feel exclusive, for better or for worse. It is a premium experience for sure, but the pours are generous and you can take your time enjoying each wine in the beautiful outdoor area too. On the flip side, could be tricky if weather is cold / wet / smoky since the "bar" area isn't all that spacious. Fun red varietal options too

The location and view was outstanding. We did the "tasting on the hill" which included a food pairing. We were given a quick overview of each of the wines and left books to explain the pairing which with food item. Would have appreciated having someone present throughout the whole tasting to answer questions or verbally explain as we moved from one wine pairing to the next.

We are proud to show them what an awesome place you have and want them to see the kind of wine club we belong to. We love all the varietals WH has to offer. Hell, we even ship to our place in Western New York. Cheers!

It is always wonderful to visit William Hill up on the "bench" overlooking Napa Valley. We took some friends this time and they remarked how friendly and accommodating everyone was. The seated estate tasting is such an elevated experience, as they serve you a tray with 4 of the best wines with paired small bites as you gaze out over the rolling vineyards. Thank you to the great hospitality team!

Overall winery experience was what our group made it. There wasn’t much hospitality or service that was above average. We made reservations ahead of time and had to wait for our curated snacks after I was on my third out of four tasting. Also, the winery was not busy at all and we had to wait on the staff to finish whatever they were doing in the back to receive any type of service.

William Hill Estate is absolutely gorgeous. Each and every one of the staff were genuinely helpful, happy, and friendly, in addition to being extremely knowledgeable. They're not pushy about selling wine nor wine memberships. And they don't need to be! The people and wine more than speak for themselves. Our tasting room rep was Miguel, who could not have done a better job. We'll be back!

This was our first visit to William Hill Estate Winery. We had discovered the Chardonnay while vacationing in San Diego earlier in the year, and were delighted to be able to visit. The tasting room can get loud, but the grounds are so nice and we were allowed to take our glasses outside to enjoy. I think that's really the way to do it. Sample a handful of wines, then take a favorite outside!!

This was the first of our wine country experiences this trip and a great beginning. The view was lovely, the atmosphere was refined, and the pairings were perfect. I have never had speck that tender. I also like the fact that the wine club only requires a commitment of two orders. We are non-Californians (with a connection to the Bay) and will have to see whether opting in makes sense,

Been coming here for years. A beautiful setting. You are looking over acres and acres of vineyards from a perfect perch that is not too high so that you receive the full experience of the scenic vineyards. The wines are wonderful. My bride loves the Benchland Chardonnay. One of the few wineries that produces a full bodied wonderful Petite Verdot (my personal Favorite).
