We went into this liking their Chardonnay and left with 2 bottles of other great whites. I guess you could say we expanded our horizons..... We will highly recommend WH Estates to others.

The location and grounds are beautiful. Their staff however, was a different story. Upon walking in, one member of the staff tried to turn us away because we “didn’t have a reservation.” Then we went to another & she told us we didn’t need a res. The entire experience left a lot to be desired. I’ve had much better experience drinking much better wine elsewhere.

William Hill was the first stop of our visit and what a gorgeous beginning it was! The setting for their tasting room and vineyards is breathtaking. We had our 2 year old with us as well and the area allowed her to run and play as we did our tasting. The employees even played with her some ?? I wasn’t a huge fan of the wines personally however would still recommend this as a good stop.

The grounds were surprisingly gorgeous with plenty of outdoor seating in either shade or sun. Lovely views of the foothills as well. Inside there is no seating... only a bar you can stand at. It's also very small inside which can get crowded pretty quickly. Their mainstream chardonnay and cab are well known in retail; however, the REST of their wines were surprisingly delicious.

Pours were generous, view was beautiful and Darryl was generous with his time and chatted with our family of four adults for quite some time. We loved hearing the history of William Hill and the area. We would definitely go back again and we are looking forward to receiving our first wine shipment in September.

RSVP required makes the tasting experience more relaxed and feel exclusive, for better or for worse. It is a premium experience for sure, but the pours are generous and you can take your time enjoying each wine in the beautiful outdoor area too. On the flip side, could be tricky if weather is cold / wet / smoky since the "bar" area isn't all that spacious. Fun red varietal options too

The location and view was outstanding. We did the "tasting on the hill" which included a food pairing. We were given a quick overview of each of the wines and left books to explain the pairing which with food item. Would have appreciated having someone present throughout the whole tasting to answer questions or verbally explain as we moved from one wine pairing to the next.

It is always wonderful to visit William Hill up on the "bench" overlooking Napa Valley. We took some friends this time and they remarked how friendly and accommodating everyone was. The seated estate tasting is such an elevated experience, as they serve you a tray with 4 of the best wines with paired small bites as you gaze out over the rolling vineyards. Thank you to the great hospitality team!

Overall winery experience was what our group made it. There wasn’t much hospitality or service that was above average. We made reservations ahead of time and had to wait for our curated snacks after I was on my third out of four tasting. Also, the winery was not busy at all and we had to wait on the staff to finish whatever they were doing in the back to receive any type of service.
