Synergy sometimes develops where it is least expected. But, when two top brands come together, the results can be phenomenal.
In April 2019, Honey Brake Lodge, the nation’s top waterfowl hunting destination, and Hill Family Estate, one of Napa Valley’s most exclusive wine producers, announced the co-development of a premium line of wines. The partnership aims at highlighting the ultimate high-end outdoor experience at the Lodge while providing the Hill Family Estate customers with another choice.
An exclusive new brand, Honey Brake Hill Wines, will be introduced in November to the Hill Family Estate Wine Club customers and discerning guests at the Honey Brake Hill Lodge in Jonesville, Louisiana.
Initial offerings will be an expertly developed Red Blend and a Chardonnay.
Hill Family Estate Winery
The Honey Brake-Hill Family partnership offers guests at Honey Brake Lodge exclusive access to wine production by one of the premier Napa Valley wineries. The winery, Hill Family Estate, was fashioned from Doug Hill’s vision to share his love of supplying quality grapes to many Napa Valley wineries, farming, and wine production with his children and wine lovers everywhere.
Honey Brake Hill Wines will combine Doug Hill’s four decades of innovative grape-growing experience with the highly recognized talents of Winemaker, Alison Doran. Mentored by legendary winemaker Andre Tchelistcheff, Alison perfected her winemaking skills in Alsace, France.
Doran has been the Winemaker at Hill Family Estate since the winery’s inaugural vintage in 2001.
The combined expertise of Doug Hill and family, plus the award-winning winemaking skills of Alison Doran are creating a highly anticipated introduction by one of the most important Napa Valley wineries.

Designed for discerning sportsmen and sportswomen, Honey Brake Lodge offers its clientele a 5-Star waterfowl hunting experience. The Lodge, near Jonesville LA, is situated on 20,000 acres of the old Louisiana Delta Plantation along the banks of Larto Lake and its tributaries.

Watch for the Introduction of Honey Brake Hill Wines
Combining the grapes managed and selected by one of the world’s top growers with the winemaking expertise of the award-winning winery of Hill Family Estate is a recipe for sure success. The target of the first production of Honey Brake Hill brand wines is to introduce unique, sought-after taste that complements the quality of the Honey Brake Lodge experience.
In recent years, both Honey Brake Lodge and Hill Family Estate have independently developed widespread reputations with discerning customers. Blending these two brands into a recognizable wine label from one of the best wineries in Napa will serve to heighten their reputations even more.
