A stroll through a beautiful garden followed by a flight of amazing wines? Count us in! At Hill Family Estate, we strive to offer guests an unforgettable experience during their time in wine country, so we’re offering the Secret Garden Tour with a classic Napa wine tasting from June 1 to September 30. There are so many Napa Valley wineries to visit but make sure to reserve a spot on this special tour for your memorable moment in wine country. Mondays-Saturdays at 10:30am, guests can experience this hour-long exploration of the Hill Family Farms while tasting freshly plucked fruits and sipping our delicious Hill Family Estate wines.
The tour begins with an excursion into the gardens, a 1.3-acre oasis located about five minutes from the Hill Family Estate tasting room in downtown Yountville. This verdant plot has over 120 different types of fruit trees – 10 varieties of pears, 10 varieties of figs, 15 varieties of peaches, and dozens of other fruits. You’ll find a wide range of vegetables, herbs, and 25 different culinary flowers. Enjoy freshly plucked delights like peach leaves, which smell like amaretto when crushed. Continue to discover pineapple guava blossoms and miniature white strawberries.
Depending on the time of year you may even try, free-range, farm-raised certified snails. A special “snail mansion” houses these slow-moving critters later used as escargot in some impressive restaurants in town. Anytime is a great time to visit, but July tends to be a favorite among our team with fresh fruits ready to be picked. Elevate your Napa wine tasting with this garden stroll and more.

You can taste our produce at only four restaurants, all Michelin Starred, including French Laundry. Anyone who appreciates fine dining will surely love to see the origin of some of the most celebrated dishes in the valley. For the food, nature, and wine lover in the group, this tour will definitely satisfy. Exploring Napa Valley wineries is one of the best ways to experience wine country’s beauty and charm. At Hill Family Estate, we welcome you and hope to enhance your Napa wine tasting experience with our Secret Garden Tour – reserve yours today.
