We welcome visitors daily for intimate and enjoyable sit-down wine tastings, blending sessions and other interactive experiences at our winery among the verdant vines of Napa Valley.

A bit of our history:

Handcrafted wines from our garage. That’s how it all started in the early ‘70s in Los Angeles. The lure of the wine country caused us to abandon our primary vocations (I taught ESL and Art practiced architecture) to pursue the joys of winemaking and farming in the Napa Valley. In 1979, along with Art’s brother’s family, we purchased a ranch about halfway between Rutherford and St. Helena, on which we built Whitehall Lane Winery where we produced some great wines in the ‘80s.

The next chapter in the story leads us to Judd’s Hill where we devoted ourselves to creating small lots of premium handcrafted wines. It was here on our hill that we pioneered Napa Valley Custom MicroCrush, where we make small lots of custom wine for grape growers and wine enthusiasts. Judd had been living in Southern California and handling our sales there. In 2003, he married Holly and they moved here in 2004 to create a full and wonderful family business experience. Her MBA and passion for doing things right has made her a perfect CFO and partner.

The development of the JUDD label added more variety to our lineup of Cabernet and Merlot. Judd produces Petite Sirah, Pinot Noir and Syrah, and his creative eye, astute nose and discerning taste buds keep us anticipating what the next new wine might be.

The four of us put in long days, but we have fun and love working together. We find winemaking to be an endlessly fascinating business which allows us the pleasures of continual learning and social interaction.

Art, Judd and Holly join me in wishing you the joy of your family and friends sharing a bottle of fine wine with our toasts to your good health!

  • Had a lovely time! It felt really mellow there and we had a view to look at while we sampled wine. I did the cab flight, which had some really great tasting wines. Rose was super friendly and got us a last minute appointment.
  • Jamie from Priority Wine Pass recommended Judd’s Hill. This is a small winery that produces 3000 cases. It is a beautiful setting as you look out upon two different farmers vineyards. It is rather interesting as the vineyards are planted in exactly opposite directions. We tasted grapes directly from the vine in both vineyards. Our host was friendly and knowledgeable. The wines were good.
  • Amazing time! A really beautiful location and an amazing experience! Highly highly recommend. The staff was really friendly, Ryan helped us out with the tastings, and explained many subtle details of the wine making story, made us appreciate the wine even more. Cheers.
  • We had an amazing time here. People were super kind and knowledgeable. The wine is pretty amazing too!!
  • The wine flight was excellent especially the 2018 Syrah and the Cab. Ryan was an excellent server/host and very knowledgeable. He gave a whole history of Napa Valley and of the winery. Definitely coming back.
