JAMES HALL AND ANNE MOSES
Anne and James purchased the property (which is located between Hudson and Hyde vineyards in the southern part of Carneros) in 1999. One of the coolest areas of Carneros, close to San Pablo Bay where the chilly pacific winds roll over the vineyard from two directions, the vineyard is situated on an uplifted knoll with well-draining gravelly soils. The vineyard was planted to James and Anne’s specifications to five selections of Pinot Noir: 777, Swan, Calera, 828 and 115. With seventeen years of vine age, the vineyard consistently yields grapes that produce lovely layers of red fruit, as well as darker, more savory elements. More tannic wines - grip & heft. Rustic. Grapes from the site have been a part of the Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir since 2003.
As far as the Patz & Hall “Family of Winegrowers” goes, this is about as close as family gets. Along with Donald and Heather Patz, Anne and James founded Patz & Hall in 1988. Moses-Hall Vineyard is also the location of Anne and James’ family home. Grapes from the site have been a part of the Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir since 2003.
