My girlfriend and I are both red wine fans so keep that in mind - we aren't "sweet wine" drinkers at all. We are members of their wine club.

This place is our favorite winery for many reasons. First of course is the product. We love their reds - Politics & Religion is brilliant, as is as JuJu. Even their whites are excellent (because they are dry). We've bought many bottles of both, and will continue to do so. When we visit (which seems to be about 2-3 times a month) its really a hard choice to decide which one we want!

The people at Hilmy are amazing. You want to learn about wines (which I do, I'm relatively late to the party) then talk to Scott, the Op Mgr. He's so friendly and so knowledgable, he is one the main reasons we keep coming back. Amy is really nice greeting us, it really is like a family.

When they have food then you will be REALLY glad you stopped in. Steve is a great chef and his stuff is always top notch.

Location couldn't be easier, right off of 290.

Stop in, savor the wine, and give the dogs a hug.

Our server was attentive, knowledgeable and helpful. So helpful in fact that I joined the club and received a nice discount on the wine I purchased. I enjoyed all the wines. I knew I wanted to do a tasting here because I'd already enjoyed a bottle of Chenin Blanc at a restaurant in Houston so I was thrilled to see the other wines were just as delicious. I highly recommend visiting. Very comfortable, neat, spacious, clean looking tasting room. A real treat!

Greeted warmly and hosted extravagantly by Scott, the operations manager. He thrilled and educated us with history and fun facts of the local region, grape varietals and their nuances, how certain food likes and dislikes translates to different wine palates, etc...

You must be a dry wine lover, but if you are, JACKPOT! Our group of 3 took home a number of bottles, though the crowd favorite was their "Politics and Religion." I'm guessing, by the name, that you either love it or hate it, but it was a top pick of the entire group.

It was without a doubt busy, but we were still so well-atteneded that I have no idea how this place could ever get anything less than a 5 star review. We just visited 5 well known, high-end wineries in Napa 6 months ago, and Hilmy not only lacked the "stuffiness" you find at some wineries while still maintaining the same caliber of polish, but was had an overall experience value that beat out most of them.

All 3 of us agreed: One of the best winery experiences we'd each ever had!

Mostly dry wines at this winery. Their muscat was great for you sweeter wine drinkers, but the rest is available to try and see what you think.
Michael was helping me and he was amazing! Very detailed with the products and processes; it was an educational visit and had me sample some of the different wines as he told me about them. He was very patient, friendly and explained a great deal to me. Even though it wasn't my preference of wine going in, I enjoyed my stop.
