Founded in 1988, Patz & Hall embodies the shared vision and collective expertise of four talented friends – Donald Patz,

James Hall, Anne Moses and Heather Patz. Together, this dedicated team of individuals has turned a desire to craft benchmark,

single-vineyard Chardonnays and Pinot Noirs into one of California‘s most celebrated artisan wineries.

 

The seeds for Patz & Hall were planted in the 1980s when James Hall and Donald Patz struck up a close friendship while working

together at Flora Springs Winery and Vineyards. The two discovered a mutual enthusiasm for a rich and compelling style

of wine made by applying traditional winemaking techniques to fruit from elite, small vineyards. Inspired to combine their

talents, James and Donald joined with partners Anne Moses and Heather Patz to establish Patz & Hall in 1988.

 

To achieve their goal of crafting exceptional limited-production wines, the four founders have focused their specialized

knowledge and expertise on different areas of the winery‘s operations. This integrated, hands-on approach, along with a

commitment to developing close personal relationships with a handful of California‘s finest growers, have become the cornerstone

of the winery‘s success—allowing Patz & Hall to continually realize the highest levels of quality and consistency.

 

Building on this foundation, Patz & Hall has created an acclaimed portfolio of wines using fruit from exceptional familyowned

vineyards in the Napa Valley, Russian River Valley, Mendocino County, Sonoma Coast and Santa Lucia Highlands.

Vintage after vintage, Patz & Hall Chardonnays and Pinot Noirs are recognized for their evocative character, dramatic flavors

and seductive textures.
