Partner Spotlight: Hill Family Estate

Hill Family Estate was born out of the desire for a family to work together. Third-generation farmer Doug Hill grew prunes and apples along the Russian River before moving to the Napa Valley in the 1970s to manage vineyards. During the 1980s and 1990s Doug began acquiring vineyards of his own as well as leasing land, and has now grown grapes for more than forty prominent wineries including Silver Oak, Far Niente, Quintessa and Cakebread, to name a few.

After nearly four decades of farming, Doug and his family decided to enter the winemaking business, and in 2001 Hill Family Estate was born. 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 throughout the country.

The salon-styled tasting room is located in downtown Yountville, in the heart of Napa Valley. Hill Family Estate welcomes walk-ins and reservations for their outdoor and indoor tasting experiences. In 2019 they opened their new estate winery, located just minutes from the town of Yountville on Solano Avenue north of Hoffman Lane. The winery estate is open for wine tastings Thursdays through Mondays by advance appointment.
