About Judd's Hill

Judd's Hill is owned and operated by two generations of the Finkelstein family. Bunnie, Judd and Holly Finkelstein are vintners dedicated to producing ultra-premium, handcrafted wines.

Read More

Our family has been making wine in Napa Valley since the 1970's and continues to produce signature wines that are fruit-driven, concentrated and just simply delicious.Taking an intimate and personal approach to our winemaking, we limit our annual production to less than 3,000 cases.

In 2006 construction was completed on our new winery located at the southern end of the Silverado Trail. We designed it to be as green as possible, minimizing 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. As a result, Judd's Hill has been certified as one of the first Napa Valley Green Wineries by the Napa Valley Vintners.

My solo experience at Judd's Hill was amazing. I was greeted happily by CJ who not only brought out a variety of lovely wines, but answered so many questions about the region. She informed me about so much more I didn't know about wine country. Then Bunny, Judd's Hill owner, drove up and came over to greet me. The hospitality at this winery was superb! I'd go back anytime and recommend to anyone!

The staff was wonderful, but this winery fell a little flat for me. While it was beautiful there, I thought it was rather odd that there was very limited seating space and no seating or store we could go into inside. The small bench my husband and I were sat at was awkward and uncomfortable to do our tasting at, and the wines were all mostly very dry.

We arrived at 10am for our tasting, there was one other couple that was doing a tasting at the same time. By 10:45 we had only received two of five tastings of wine each and had only been talked to for a total of 6 minutes. A wine club member also showed up during that time and was turned away due to not having space. We ended up leaving due to the poor service.

Easily my favorite wines of the trip. We sat inside and were able to try 5 wines, plus an extra dessert port (which was delicious). Bought a couple of bottles and got one of our tastings discounted. We found that we liked it so much better than some of the other tastings we did, that we went back the next day to buy another bottle.

We were a bit surprised by the lack of ambience of the place. We were quickly received by the host who invited us to look for a table and was very kind. We has a lot of knowledge and really took his time to explain all the wines to us. Maybe the season was not the best to visit but I really think they could give us a tour of the place and offer some food. We would have paid for it, even.

It was a lovely setting. A lady was tending lovingly to a pair of guests when we arrived who departed shortly after - she offered to take as many photos as they liked and even recommended places to pose. We had a gentleman guide. My husband and I expressed lots of interest in the manufacturing process and blending and he curated the experience. We chatted for an hour or so after. It was great!
