Upon speak­ing to co-owner James Hall, one quickly learns that peo­ple, and re­la­tion­ships with them, is what has made Patz & Hall the renowned vine­yard it is to­day. The idea for Patz & Hall be­gan in the 1980s, when, Hall, who was an as­sis­tant wine­maker at the time, struck a friend­ship with the vine­yard’s na­tional sales man­ager, Don­ald Patz. They joined with Heather Patz and Anne Moses and created Patz & Hall in 1988. Fast-for­ward 30 years and this vine­yard has be­come a must-visit des­ti­na­tion known for its sin­gle vine­yard Chardon­nay and Pinot Noir. Make sure to re­serve for their “Salon Ex­pe­ri­ence” ($75) which runs Thurs­day through Sun­days and fea­tures six Chardon­nay and Pinot Noir sin­gle-vine­yard-des­ig­nate wines. This intimate ex­pe­ri­ence ac­com­mo­dates up to 9 peo­ple and pairs the wines with canapés such as mini shrimp taco with pineap­ple salsa, burnt or­ange and mez­cal pâte de fruit on pink pep­per­corn short­bread, and Moroc­can spiced lamb with cran­berry car­rot slaw on sweet potato.

They also of­fer a stylish drop-in tast­ing bar that of­fers more ca­sual seated tast­ings as well as a gor­geous ter­race where guests may re­lax and take in the views.

Patz & Hall is lo­cated at 21200 8th Street East, Sonoma, CA 95476
