WALT Wines, owned by Vintners Kathryn Walt Hall and Craig Hall, is dedicated to the production of premier Pinot Noir and Chardonnay from the Pacific Coast’s most distinctive vineyard sites, spanning nearly 1000 miles and including Sta. Rita Hills, Sonoma County, Anderson Valley, and the Willamette Valley. Our philosophy is that of precision, non-interventionist winemaking, thereby allowing the wines to naturally and honestly express the character of the site where the wines are grown.

Our winemaking team, led by Director of Winemaking Steve Leveque, and Winemaker Megan Gunderson is passionate about creating compelling, delicious wines that are honest expressions of their vineyard sites. Click here to explore our craft.

We invite you to visit us on the Sonoma Plaza and let us lead you on a delicious journey through the most expressive Pinot Noir and Chardonnay vineyards on the Pacific Coast. Our tasting room combines the warmth of a wine -country home with the inspiration of an art gallery. Steeped in Sonoma history and charm, our intimate venue is located just off the northwest corner of the Sonoma Plaza. Our door is open every day from 11 AM until 6 PM.

We booked a tasting for my wife and I and two friends. We had a great host who explained the wines very well and poured our group a couple of extras. We sat outdoors in the patio area. Overall we all enjoyed the tasting at Walt. The only thing missing would have been some crackers to cleanse the palate between wines.

The food pairings were delicious, as well, and the wines, many I hadn’t tried, were stellar! Thank you so much for accommodating us and making us feel so welcome!! I look forward to visiting again!!

We have been to Walt close to half a dozen times and it never disappoints. From people watching on the front patio, to relaxing on the back patio area, the atmosphere is relaxed and enjoyable. It’s a must for us every time we are in Sonoma. And that’s just the atmosphere - they also have great wine! We have also had a different host each time we were there and have never been disappointed.

The tasting room is quaint and adorable, however, it was never acknowledged that I was a Hall member and took quite some time for anyone to greet us. It then took a very long time for anyone to come to our table and begin the tasting which felt rushed and robotic. We had higher expectations.

The location is quaint and charming, casual and intimate. The wines are absolutely delish! We were fortunate to book the Route 101 tasting and were delighted with the food, the wines and our informative host, Chris Brock. The depth of his knowledge about pinot noir wine producing regions coupled with his intimate knowledge of pinots and other wines enhanced our experience. Recommended!!!

Loved the indoor ambiance and especially the wines. It had been 9 months since our previous visit and I asked myself - why did we wait so long?
