Founded in 1988, Patz & Hall is one of California’s leading wineries for vineyard-designated Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. Patz & Hall has always exemplified one core philosophy: to work with only the finest vineyards in California, farmed by the greatest growers. From these prized vineyards, Patz & Hall makes wines that have become benchmarks for their intensity, elegance and complexity. The result is a celebrated portfolio of coveted wines from legendary sites such as Hyde Vineyard, Chenoweth Ranch, Jenkins Hill, Gap’s Crown and Pisoni Vineyard. Winemaker James Hall has made every single vintage of Patz & Hall wine.
He crafts all the wines in a state-of-the-art winery in Sonoma that he designed. In the winery, James and his team apply both traditional and cutting-edge techniques, including a unique, custom barrel program, where stave wood is air dried and seasoned for three years to Patz & Hall’s specifications by the François Frères and Seguin Moreau cooperages in the heart of Burgundy.
