Yountville Tasting Room

Hill Family Tasting Salon is an elegant yet relaxed experience located in the heart of Yountville.

About our Family

In 1981, Doug and Darci Hill settled down on an acre of land at the northern edge of Yountville. Their children, Ryan and Carly, grew up playing in the vineyards, tending chickens, and played baseball and basketball. They also helped their neighbors grow organic fruits and vegetables for the local restaurants including Thomas Keller’s world renowned French Laundry restaurant.

Hill Family Estate produced their first wines in 2001, a Merlot and a red blend called Origin. Production ranges between 9,000 to 12,000 cases annually. Having a repertoire of 12 different vineyards to draw from they are able to select only the highest quality fruit for their wines.

Today the Hill Family owns 120 acres of vineyards with a focus on Atlas Peak, Carneros and Oak Knoll. The vineyards are 100% family-farmed, family-owned and family-operated.

Visiting our Tasting Salon

Our salon-styled tasting room offers a comfortable setting amid eclectic décor such as a Fender electric guitar, antique furniture, a surfboard, and baseball bats stained with Hill Harvest Red wine. It’s elegant and quite polished (this is Yountville after all) but still kicked-back, with a relaxed staff who can impress sophisticated foodies as well as rowdy imbibers.

We welcome walk-ins and appointments, and request a prior appointment for groups of 6 or more. On weekends we recommend making an appointment to reserve a table.
