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.

Kathryn from Texas did a great job of guiding our tasting, offering suggestions based on our reactions to each and even improvising a bit off script to help us find a wine we liked. It worked well and we brought favorites home that will continue to create great memories. HALL Cabs are well worth the high marks they receive regularly.

This was the only winery that we did not enjoy and all because the employee doing our tasting was RUDE. Also half the wines we did not enjoy. Grounds are beautiful but we will not return here and we bought nothing.

HALL is a fabulous intersection of wonderful art, wine, architecture, history, and scenery. Wines are delicious, beautiful views from the valley floor, one of a kind art pieces at every turn (make sure you stop in the bathrooms), and plenty of lovely common areas for people to relax and enjoy themselves make this winery really stand out. We had a... More

One of my favorite stops in all of Napa Valley -- incredible state-of-the-art facility with amazing views. Staff is very attentive and thoughtful while giving you the appropriate amount of space to enjoy your tasting. Highly recommend this spot. We will be back!

This winery is modern with unique pieces of art. Beautiful outdoor patio where you can sit comfortably and enjoy the gorgeous views. Spacious tasting room with knowledgeable and unpretentious service. The cabernets are spectacular - especially the Ellie and 1873. Definitely worth a visit if you are tasting in Napa.

The garden and art installation make this very unique... the wine was superb. Building is a work of art in itself.

If you're after a super commercial experience with robotic staff that simply go through the motions this is the place for you... wines were ok, but nothing outstanding compared to the other "big wineries" of the region. Maybe it was just personnel but I'd rate other places in Napa region much higher.

I like Hall wines, or at least I did. I really dislike snooty attitudes. My husband and I arrived midday on a sunny winter Tuesday. The parking lot had few vehicles - and those were mostly service vehicles. There were a number of tables, none occupied, in various sunny locations. We had sandwiches from Sunshine Market St Helena (recommended.). In... More

Thank you so much for taking the time to relay your experience at Hall St. Helena. Picnicking is a benefit for club members at the property, as we unfortunately are not permitted to allow picnicking to the public. It sounds like the manner in which this was communicated was inhospitable, and this will certainly be addressed with our Guest Relations... More
