The Hill family began to select and plant their own 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, Carneros creates 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.
This cobblestone knoll with a southeastern exposure ripens Cabernet Sauvignon late in the growing season. Beautiful dark rich wines are produced.
Red Door Vineyard
There is dense vine planting with low yield per vine which produces excellent Merlot.
Stewart Ranch Vineyard
The vineyard can be seen entering Napa off the right hand side of Highway 29. A red barn sits at the edge of the vineyard, which is surrounded by a wildlife refuge. Hill Family Estate produces a single vineyard Stewart Ranch Pinot Noir. The vineyard also turns out excellent quality Albariño, Sauvignon Musque, Pinot Noir, and Merlot.
Merlot from this west-facing slope is mostly situated on loam and gravelly loam soils. Summer afternoons are warm, producing small sized berries with great flavors.
Excellent mountain vineyard with red soil and some volcanic ash which stress the vines resulting in more concentrated fruit. It makes for a great location for Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Syrah and Sauvignon Blanc.
This is one of our best sites for cool-climate grapes. We grow Pinot Meunier, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Musque and Muscat Canelli. Slow maturation and good acidities prevail for these grapes.
Great range of terroir on this single site which produces excellent Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Pinot Noir.
Windy Flats Vineyard
This site is stunningly beautiful with rocky bluffs above the vineyards and a valley below. The vineyard soils consist of shale and rocky loams. On this 154-acre site there are approximately 20 acres in vines, including Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Petite Verdot, Zinfandel, Petite Sirah, and three different clones of Sauvignon Blanc.
Beau Terre Vineyard
The well drained, gravelly soils consistently produce great Cabernets and Merlots.
One of the newer growing regions, it produces excellent mountain Cabernets, Merlots, Chardonnays and Sauvignon Blancs depending on location of the sun and terroir.
