After four decades of farming grapes for some of Napa Valley’s finest wine producers, fourth-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.
