A brief history
The Hill family began to select and plant their own Napa vineyards in the 1980s, using their intimate knowledge of the multiple Napa Valley microclimates, soil variations and the many subtle growing factors which inﬂuence the characteristics of the grape and the resulting quality of wine. They planted Pinot Noir, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Albariño, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc in the Carneros appellation.
Known for its clay soils and cool climate, the Napa Valley vineyards in Carneros create perfect conditions to allow these varieties to develop their complex ﬂavors. They planted Merlot, Syrah, and Cabernet Sauvignon in the Oak Knoll district, and Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Malbec, Sauvignon Blanc and Syrah at 1,500 feet elevation near Atlas Peak; both areas with a perfect environment to develop the rich berry ﬂavor and intense fruit color that make these red wines some of the best in the world.
We source only the best grapes from our Napa Valley vineyards to bring you memorable wines with character and distinction.
