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.

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!!
