Made up of three distinct vineyards, Bentrock, Radian, and Puerta del Mar, The Hilt Estate defines the southwest corner of the Sta. Rita Hills. Two distinct ridges, Bentrock and Radian, characterize the property and are the primary sources for all our wines. These ridges include an extensive range of altitudes, mesoclimates, hours of sunshine, and soil types. Our wines are produced separately in order to capture the different characters of our wind-whipped, ridgeline vineyards.
The estate is planted with a diverse selection of clonal materials, from which Winemaker Matt Dees chooses the most distinctive pinot noir and chardonnay grapes to create the wines of The Hilt Estate.
