Hill Family Estate
利尔酒窖作为纳帕谷优秀的葡萄酒庄,种植葡萄超过25年。之后，利尔酒窖决定生产自己的葡萄酒。利尔酒窖对葡萄酒的激情和对纳帕谷的热爱都源自于他们的家族。利尔酒窖在葡萄种植园管理和葡萄酒制作过程中不断地追求卓越，这使得他们能够生产具有独特个性和深度的葡萄酒---从浪漫的标签到专注于每一瓶葡萄酒上的时间和精力都无不说明了这一点。Ryan Hill 经常称，如果你想做五彩缤纷的梦，那么就喝葡萄酒吧。
当酿酒大师Alison Doran 加入了这个团队并发布2001葡萄酒酿造期的时候，利尔酒窖的这个梦想很快得以实现。当Alison在种植葡萄并为 Lewis Cellars 酿酒的那段时间他就被引见给Doug。Doug非常欣赏Alison的风格、性格以及生产最好的葡萄酒的决心。Alison因为得到了久负盛名的酿酒专家Andre Tchelistcheff的指导，她的技术显著提升。Andre Tchelistcheff于加州大学戴维斯分校取得酿酒技艺学位，并在法国阿尔萨斯省这具传奇色彩的酿酒地区工作。如今，Doug和Alison齐心合作，挑选最优质的葡萄酿制顶级的葡萄酒。
After more than 25 years of growing grapes for some of Napa Valley’s finest wineries, the Hill Family decided to produce their own wines. The Hills’ passion for wine and love for the Napa Valley all begins with their family. The Hill Family’s constant pursuit of excellence in vineyard management and winemaking allows them to produce wines which beautifully express the individuality and depth of character in each varietal. From the romance of the label to the time and dedication put into each bottle. Ryan Hillalways stated that if you want to dream in color, drink wine.
This dream soon became a reality for Hill Family Estate when winemaker Alison Doran joined the team and made the inaugural 2001 vintage. Alison was introduced to Doug while he was growing grapes and she was making wine for Lewis Cellars. Doug loved Alison’s style, personality and determination to produce the finest wines possible. Alison developed this skill while being mentored by renowned wine expert Andre Tchelistcheff, completing a degree in winemaking from UC Davis and spending time in the legendary winery-filled region of Alsace, France. Today, Doug and Alison work closely together selecting the highest quality grapes and producing ultra premium wines.
