PATZ & HALL
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
