Owner description: HALL Wines is a family-owned, critically acclaimed premier Napa Valley vineyard and winery with five estate vineyards of classic Bordeaux varietals. As a specialist in Cabernet Sauvignon, each vintage the winemaking staff crafts 15 distinct Cabernet blends which demonstrate the unique characteristics and diversity of the Napa Valley. Their highly rated wines have included the 2008 'Kathryn Hall' Cabernet Sauvignon selected as Wine Spectator's #2 wine in the world in 2011, the 2010 'Exzellenz' which received 100 points from Robert Parker in 2013, and the 2006 'Exzellenz' selected as Wine Enthusiast's #1 wine in the world in 2009. HALL's Napa Valley estate vineyards are Certified Organic and employ cutting-edge vineyard technology to yield the highest quality grapes. In addition, the HALL St. Helena winemaking facility was the first LEED(R) Gold Certified Winery in the State of California, making HALL Wines a pioneer in the use of green buildings in the wine industry. The site maintains one acre of solar panels on its roof and uses 100% recycled water throughout its processes. Each of HALL's spectacular winemaking facilities, HALL St. Helena and HALL Rutherford, showcases installations from the Hall family's extensive modern art collection.

We had an excellent experience at Hall Rutherford earlier this year. The tour and tasting in St Helena led by Joanna B. was outstanding. The Cabernets, particularly Kathyrn, are some of the finest in Napa! We are wine club members and look forward to returning soon.

We had a great time tasting some great reds and whites. Our guide, Kathryn, did a great job making all of us feel comfortable in the surroundings. She answered all of our questions and gave us a nice, short tour around the premises. We did buy some wine to send home, how could we resist, with $1 shipping.

Our visit to Hall was a result of a chance encounter with Fred Sconberg in downtown Napa. The friendliness we experienced during that short visit was surpassed during our time at Hall Wines. Fred was able to join us part way through out tasting and it felt like we were visiting a long time friend rather than a new acquaintance. We learned a great deal about the Hall approach to wine making, committment to the environment, love of the arts, technological advances, etc. The winery is state of the art, and the visitor center will obviously be impressive when it is completed. The attention to detail is unsurpassed, and it certainly results in some outstanding wines. Jack's Masterpiece was extraordinary...I wish I could have brought some home. Thanks Fred for a fabulous visit. We encourage you to stop here! You'll make friends and want to go back! Eric.S

You can choose from hundreds of wineries to visit in the Napa Valley and surrounding area. Hall is worth visiting if you want to see how organic methods can be effectively applied to produce delicious wines. Our tour was comprehensive and informative, ending with some sampling of their wines. The property is undergoing construction with a new modern tasting room being build to supplement the historic older structures. Our guide must have done this tour hundreds of times but he managed to make it feel fresh and new for us.
