Judd's HillVerified Organization

A brief history

We have made wine in The Napa Valley since the 1970s, and continue to produce signature wines that are fruit-driven and concentrated while remaining well-balanced and food-friendly. Taking an intimate and personal approach to our winemaking, we limit our annual production to less than 3,000 cases.

In addition to our Judd’s Hill wines, we have produced custom wine in small lots since 1991 for aspiring vintners under our Custom MicroCrush program. All of our Judd’s Hill and MicroCrush wines are made in our certified Napa Valley Green Winery designed to minimize our impact on the land. The use of environmentally efficient drainage, solar lighting, and an aggressive recycling and composting program are a few ways that our winery uses smart design to make a difference.

Meet The Team

  • Eric Lyman

    Eric Lyman, was born in Petaluma, California and spent much of his youth in Puerto Rico with his family before moving to Napa in the early 1980s. He appreciated the cultural immersion that life in Puerto Rico provided him, and quickly learned the merits of being bi-lingual, especially if one wants to fully collaborate with those working hard in the wine industry.

    Prior to his career as a winemaker, Eric was a Navy cryptologic technician before spending nearly two decades working in the pharmaceutical industry. In 2009, he made the momentous decision to follow his passion and go back to school to learn the art and science of winemaking. He joined the Judd’s Hill winemaking team in 2010, and earned the title of Judd’s Hill winemaker in 2016. As a winemaker, Eric often experiments with nontraditional techniques to make the most interesting and finest wines possible. As to the large number of varietals he produces, he readily admits, “When I’m making wine whether it be for Judd’s Hill or for our Custom MicroCrush clients, understanding the vision, being organized and open-minded are important, as well as having a great winemaking team.”
