Hill created the luxury wine brand Bighorn Cellars in 1994 with the goal of
creating a wine estate dedicated to making limited quantities of handmade Chardonnays
and Cabernets drawn from a few very special estate vineyards.
The Bighorn wines reflect this passionate dedication. We hope you enjoy drinking them as much as the Bighorn team enjoys making them.
I. The Mission:
The mission of Bighorn Cellars and Bill Hill's passion are to produce limited quantities of very high quality wine form several extraordinary vineyards in Napa Valley, California.
II. Born in the Vineyard:
It takes a certain kind of vineyard to make great wine, and these properties are rare. Bill has spent twenty-five years finding and developing "great vineyards", properties that in France would be "Grand Crus".
These extraordinary vineyards are meticulously farmed to produce small crops of intensely flavored fruit - an absolute necessity for making great wine.
III. Nurtured in the cellar:
Protecting and enhancing these wonderful flavors is the challenging task of
the cellar staff. At Bighorn meticulous cellar practices cut no corners which
would compromise quality. These laborious and costly practices include handpicking,
use of gravity flow or gas pressure to move wine without pumping, extensive
use of new barrels, and minimal filtration. The result - great wine.
