Our longest grape purchase relationship is with the Hyde family. We have bought Hyde Vineyard fruit since 1990—our third year of production. Larry Hyde and now his son, Chris Hyde, are not only close friends but continue to produce some of our finest fruit, making wines of grace, harmony and personality. The wine world knows the quality of Hyde Vineyard, we are fortunate to have some of the best blocks come to Patz & Hall.

Hyde Vineyard



Larry has helped to develop two of the most important grape selections in California: Hyde-Wente Chardonnay and Hyde-Calera Pinot Noir. In addition to his work guiding the cultivation of Hyde Vineyard, Larry has also developed his own world-class wine label, HdV, in partnership with Aubert de Villaine, a relative by marriage and one of the owners of Domaine de la Romanée-Conti.
