25 Vintages of Wine Growers as Rock Stars at Patz & Hall Wines

Patz & Hall - Patz & Hall 2010 Hyde Vineyard - Carneros Pinot Noir

Dutton Ranch.  Durrell. Hudson. Hyde. Chenoweth Ranch. Pisoni.  What do all these names have in common?  Yes, they are all vineyards, and some are wine brands too.  But they all provide grapes for the single vineyard Chardonnay and Pinot Noir wines of Patz & Hall.

The Sonoma-based winery isn’t the first to put single vineyard designations on their wines but they also champion the grower.  “The longest grower relationship we have is with Larry Hyde.  We started to buy Hyde Vineyard Chardonnay in 1990,” says winemaker James Hall.
