The wine heritage of Hall’s family traces back to California’s wine country six decades ago, continuing today with their Cabernet Sauvignon vineyards situated in distinct Napa Valley Appellations and Pinot Noir vineyards in the Anderson Valley, Sonoma Coast and Santa Rita Hills appellations. Their latest venture, BACA, specializes in Zinfandel from Heritage vineyard sites. Furthermore, these three luxury wine brands boast five contemporary tasting room destinations across Napa, Sonoma and Healdsburg, with a sixth location slated to open in downtown Palm Springs in 2024.
