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 had a wonderful time during the Root 101 tasting. The focus is on the differences in terroir and how that affects the different pinot noir offerings that WALT has. Cynthia, our host, was wonderful, with lots of anecdotes included in our tasting. The food pairing also highlighted the strengths of the different pinots.

As a WALT member I really enjoy their wines and the wine-tasting experience is generally a delight; however this time our experience was marred by the fact the winery is selling one of their wines at a member cost higher than what is being sold by Total Wines & More. Big disappointment! Why be a member? WALT personnel said they are aware of situation but did not offer to meet competitor pricing.

The Walt wines are amazing. They were the reason we joined the Walt club at Hall. The Tasting Room, Members lounge, and the facility overall is a great place to be and it's always nice to bring our friends here. The staff is just as impressive as the winery. They are all very knowledgable, helpful, and courteous. The Hall wine portfolio is also impressive, so membership has its benefits.
