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.

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!

We had a wonderful time at Judd's Hill! Mike greeted us immediately and took the time to chat with us and explain details about all of the wines we sampled. The surrounding scenery is beautiful and we much appreciated the laid-back and relaxed nature of our experience compared to the bigger wineries. We are eagerly looking forward to our first wine club shipment!

We were underwhelmed by our experience at Judd's Hill (ambiance, slight lack of professionalism, etc.). We also felt misled into choosing a more expensive tasting. Wines were overall good (almost all red), if that is what you like.

Great, chilled tasting session. Knowledgeable but not stuffy and really good if you want to experience some lovely wines in a pleasant setting without great formality and pomp that can be associated with this sort of thing. Would definitely recommend - we booked on line before we went and got same day reservation and there were options to accommodate those who arrived without reservations.

We completely stumbled upon Judd's Hill and so very glad we did. If you're looking for a relaxed, peaceful winery with amazing service and even better wines this is definitely a winery you need to visit. Phillip was not only knowledgeable, but went above and beyond to make us feel welcome. We are already looking forward to our next trip, hopefully, to make some of our very own wine!

I seek good red wine experiences especially. Mike Mitchell and the wines of Judd Hill provided a peak experience. I am semi-educated about wine and curious. With me alone and the two other tasters, he offered an incredibly varied selection of syrah, petite sarah, pinot, cabernet blends. The explanations and responses to queries were genial, personal and educational. Will return with my wife!

I liked Judd's Hill. The wine was very good, the employee who performed the tasting was extremely friendly and conversational...and not pushy at all. The actual property was pretty but unfortunately the inside where the tasting was held was very average compared to the beauty of the winery grounds.

Judd's Hill is a fairly unpretentious winery, conveniently located just a mile or two outside the city of Napa. It doesn't have its own vineyards, but sources all of its grapes locally. Our host, Todd, had decades of experience in the winemaking business, and provided us a trove of information not just about the JH wines we were drinking, but about Napa winemaking in general. A great visit!

Our first day we arrived and stopped for lunch at the Kitchen Door where we first tasted "Magic" Judd Hill on tap. I was so intrigued by the wine I immediately booked a tasting at the Judd Hill Winery. CJ was incredible, she is very knowledgeable and has a wonderful sense of humor. We laughed our entire tasting. I highly recommend a visit!

We know very little about wine, and Todd was wonderful about teaching us in a light hearted way. We left after tasting some seriously good wine, walking around the vineyard, and overall having a wonderful experience.

A small winery in Napa but the hospitality and wine were really good. All staff were super friendly and our host was really good in explaining to us each wine we tasted. We arrived much earlier than our scheduled time and they were able to accommodate us right away without any waiting. We liked how the wines are not distributed to any retails nationally, making the experience more special.

The service is well-paced and our host was attentive, knowledgeable and generous. The wine selection ranged from whites to reds to sweet wines and were overall delicious.
