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.

We arrived to a patio table set with with my name written on a chalkboard. CJ greeted us and let us know about the tasting options. We had a fantastic experience and it was largely because of CJ! She described the wines and offered suggestions and how to taste appropriately. She had such a welcoming and approachable demeanor which truly made us comfortable during our tasting.

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!

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!

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!
