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.

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!

My friend and I were on a road trip, and stopping here was a very last minute decision. I'm so glad we did! 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.

Judd's Hill has a great outdoor seating area to experience the wines. You are able to look out at the vineyards and appreciate where the wine comes from. 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. Highly recommend for a nice hour plus tasting on Silverado Trail
