Stony Hill Vineyard

3331 Saint Helena Highway N
Saint Helena  CA 94574
map | add to trip

9-5 weekdays and summer weekends

Stony Hill is unique in that after 61 years of operation we have remained a small family business, rooted in our original vision of creating great wines in small lots from our own hillside vineyards. Today our forty acres of vines produce on average 3,500 cases of wine per year. Our winemaking style is distinctly non-interventionist, allowing the intensely flavored fruit from our rocky, hillside soils to determine the character of the wine. We describe it as fruity, non-oaky and non-malolactic in style and see it as a particularly good match with food. We sell our wines primarily to customers on our mailing list and to fine restaurants in major metropolitan areas throughout the US.

Drive 3 miles north of the town of St. Helena and turn left at the Bale Grist Mill State Park. Drive up the hill, take the first left before the park gates, and follow the signs to Stony Hill for 2 miles. The gate will open automatically for you.

In summer we taste wines under an old oak tree on the north terrace of the ranch house overlooking the Napa Valley. In winter we taste wines at the dining room table inside the ranch house.

View from Tasting Room:  From our north terrace visitors look eastward across the Napa Valley to Howell Mountain and the Vaca range.

Wine Education: In the winery we compare and contrast various winemaking techniques and when tasting we discuss wine styles across as broad a spectrum as possible.
