About Hill Family Estate:
After three decades of farming grapes for some of Napa Valley’s finest wine producers, Doug Hill and his family decided to 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 and Ryan runs the sales division, working hard to get the Hill Family Estate wines placed in select accounts for you to enjoy. Carly lives and works in San Diego and hosts tastings and dinners in Southern California while Darci can be found at the tasting room, with Jack (the dog) by her side, 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.
