We really enjoyed our experience at William Hill largely due to the outstanding hospitality of Nicolle. We were scheduled for the last tasting and once it died down and there were only a few people left she took extra time with us, teaching us about wine and her experience. She even took the time to take our picture and we our experience was amazing entirely due to her warm efforts.

He also gave us some great recommendations for other wineries and restaurants to visit. Can't wait to open and share the wine we bought at our visit. Thanks for an enjoyable tasting.

The scenery was outstanding with the beautiful green colors capturing the hills on the estate. There was not a whole lot of people that were tasting due to the off season but even though the customer service was still moderate. The workers were more concerned when the shift was over rather than engaging with the tasters.

My group was talkative and Noelle was very respectful and found the right moments to pour and describe the next wine in the flight. She also engaged at times with us in our conversations as appropriate.

Took my father-in-law here for his birthday. The whole experience was great, from the excellent service, to the delicious wine and snacks piared with the tasting. The real showstopper is the view of their gorgeous vineyards and grounds. Would absolutely come back during a return trip to Napa (and will have to for pickups now that we’re wine club members).
