Patz & Hall

  • Californie


Patz & Hall was founded by four talented individuals: Donald Patz, James Hall, Anne Moses and Heather Patz. Together, they have built Patz & Hall into one of California's most renowned wineries, with a renowned portfolio of single vineyard wines. While Patz & Hall was not the first California winery to make vineyard-designated Chardonnays and Pinot Noirs, it was one of the first to introduce these wines to a wider audience outside of wine clubs and tasting rooms. Since its founding in 1988, Patz & Hall has emphasized a fundamental philosophy: to work with only the finest vineyards in California, grown by the greatest producers. From these prized vineyards, Patz & Hall produces some of the most sought-after Chardonnays and Pinot Noirs in California - wines that have become benchmarks for their intensity, elegance and complexity. Winemaker James Hall crafts each vintage of Patz & Hall wine. He makes all the wines in a state-of-the-art winery in Sonoma that he designed. This purpose-built facility gives the Patz & Hall team complete control at every stage of the winemaking process. In the winery, James and his team apply both traditional techniques and cutting-edge technology, including a unique custom barrel program, where stave wood is air-dried and aged for three years to Patz & Hall's specifications by the François Frères and Seguin Moreau cooperatives in the heart of Burgundy.
