Judd's Hill Winery

Beginning as garage winemakers, pioneering vintners Art and Bunnie Finkelstein started producing legendary wines in the Napa Valley in the 1970's, when they created Whitehall Lane Winery.  Now, their son, Judd and his wife Holly are at the helm, and Judd's Hill continues to hand-craft ultra-premium wines with the same heartfelt and intimate style that has been their signature for more than 30 years.  Taking an intimate and personal approach to winemaking, annual production is limited to less than 3,000 cases making Judd's Hill one of the smallest production, boutique wineries in the Napa Valley open for daily tastings.

In 2006 construction was completed on our new winery located at the southern end of the Silverado Trail, designed to be as green as possible, minimizing any impact on the land.  The use of environmentally efficient 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.

Our tasting room is tucked amidst the beautiful vines of Napa Valley and welcomes visitors daily.  With advanced notice, guests are also invited to participate in one of our daily Bottle Blending Day Camp sessions, during which they will be guided by a member of the knowledgeable Judd's Hill team as they blend, label and bottle their own personal cuvee.  It's a fun, educational and interactive experience and more information as well as videos and photos can be found in the Blending Camp section of www.Juddshill.com

Facility Info

Judd’s Hill welcomes visitors daily from 10am to 4pm by advance appointment for an intimate, sit-down tasting at our winery located on the Silverado Trail, one mile north of the town of Napa.
Our hospitality staff welcomes everyone to the winery with a smile and a taste of an exclusive “winery only” wine and, if you are interested, a short production tour of the winery.

Our tasting room offers a unique and very personal touch that is quite different from the typical tasting room atmosphere. We'll take you through a sampling of current releases along with a selection of limited edition wines which are only available at the winery or through our wine club. So, prior to your next visit, please call the winery to schedule an appointment to enjoy our very intimate tasting experience.
