JUDD’S HILL pioneering vintners, Art (z”l) and Bunnie Finkelstein, began as garage winemakers, and went on to produce legendary wines in the Napa Valley in the 1970’s with the founding of 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, their annual production is less than 3,000 cases, making Judd’s Hill one of the smallest production boutique wineries in Napa Valley.

HARRY AND DAVID has a history rich in agriculture and family values. The story started with Samuel Rosenberg, a successful hotel owner in Seattle, Washington. In 1910, Samuel traded his prized Hotel Sorrento for 240 prime acres of pears in Southern Oregon’s Rogue River Valley. The soon-to-be-named Bear Creek Orchard was later taken over by his two sons, Harry and David Rosenberg. Today, the company continues to grow and plan for the future, developing new ways to capitalize on the Harry and David brand.
